On Sunday afternoon I went for a visit with my son and granddaughters, the temple was solemn; we had a little something to eat and walked around sightseeing all the small shops along many streets. It's a nice ride for the whole family!!

If you have a day off in Taichung area, I strongly recommend you to visit Lugang. Now it is a small town, but once it was one of the most important ports of Taiwan. There are many temples and narrow lanes. It is really lovely.

This is a great place to experience what the ancient Chinese culture must have felt like: An historical old town, many traditional artisan workshops and lots of old temples - a wonderful place to spend a day or two andjust stroll around.

We spent about three hours strolling around the old town. The place wasn't overly crowded, and there were many interesting sights. Good place to visit for history, architecture and local flavor.

You can wander through the various markets and alleys, getting lost in the sea of people. Sea food and meat are popular among the vendors, though you can also get fried mushrooms, candy-coated strawberries, and cotton candy, which are all delicious. The older parts of...More
