Okay Trip

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

Ciaotou Sugar Refinery can be divided into three parts. The first part is the refinery which allows you to go through the whole production process of sugar. The old factory is well rehabilitated with a walkway running through the whole factory. The second part is the old office buildings in which one is converted to the Museum of Pig. It‘s... More

My girlfriend and I visited the museum and where the only people there. An interesting place to walk around and to imagine what it would have been like when it was operating.

This place has many nice things to see and do. Next to shops and souvenirs, you can visit an old suger cane factory. Although this factory is closed many years ago already, you can feel the atmotsphere good. Outside the factroy there are two old trains. One made in Belgium (Europe).

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.
