The story goes that at the age of 86 ex-military Mr. Huang started painting his house and was encouraged by his neighbours to continue with their homes. The results are numerous colourful walls which are really nice to look at (reflecting a pleasant personality) and...More

It is winter in December and it gets dark very early. It was already dark when we arrived at Rainbow Village, the place is lit with lights and there are still visitors wandering around.

A very small compound with colorfully painted houses. Only one painter created it. I think only passion can drive people to do something like this. That's why it's worth to visit.

A small compound to visit. But it does bring smile to your face. Beautiful colorful drawings to see and be marvel at. Meet the artist in his eighties. No entrance fee. You can buy some souvenirs here too.

Its in Taichung. Look at the address, or google. It is accessible by bus, but the easiest way to go there is by taxi. Taxis in Taiwan is quite cheap.

Public transport around Taichung attractions (25 Replies)
Can the places at Taichung (Sun Moon Lake, Cingjing, Rainbow village ect) be done by public transport? I will be traveling alone and hiring a taxi is very expensive. Is it difficult to travel to these places and back to Taichung's Mingsu? Thanks.
