My family went there and rented a couple of bicycles to ride around. They were really good quality. The museums all seemed closed for some reason. But it was okay, we at least got... read more

Ok, so this place is called a 'museum' but that is a bit misleading. It's basically the factory preserved (somewhat dilapidatedly) from the day it stopped functioning as an industrial complex in 1999. But it's still great -- you can wander through the eerie halls and get a taste of what it was like to work there. It would be... More

This place is good for a quick stop. Plenty of venders around to sell any thing you can think of. Can be very hectic as many busses stop here to.

Defintely an interesting attraction; they make sugar fun. I would recommend it for all ages! The park is peppered with statues made from recycled parts of machinery of the abandoned sugar factory so it makes for steampunk like art. There is literally a iron Goddess/Kuan Yin statue (fun pun on 鐵觀音). You even get to see the close-up rusting facade... More

It is a disused factory now turned into a museum. You get to understand how the sugarcane is transported, processed and made into sugar. This original site was formerly a sugarcane plantation. Now there are old trains for display. You can also rent a bicycle or 4 wheeler to move around as the place is huge. There is underground tunnel,... More

It was a hot afternoon when we were there. It was within walking distance from the MRT station, but the road leading there was dusty and not quite well maintained. The exhibition rooms were small, hot and stuffy. The exhibits were common and not really very attractive. although it did give some insight to the past sugar industry of Taiwan.... More

the museum itself was very nice but the surrounding vendors and shops were very noisy and rowdy. Could be better on weekdays.

This historic, beautifully landscaped park area is really lovely with planted flowers, notably sunflowers, lots of old defunct trains, lots of art in way of sculpture, a fish pond with lilies, a couple of buildings housing museums. One museum houses everything to do with pigs, which is whimsical and fun to look at - not sure what significance of pig... More

The whole scene is akin to come out from photos from our parents generation. It was well-maintained, as it was nearly sunset, I did not managed to visit the entire place.
