Taiwan in itself a beautiful country! It is colorful and the people around are also nice and helpful. We did not find communication that difficult as people did speak English. But yes, there were times when we had to use the translator to manage communication.
I would recommend buying a T money card which can be used in public transports. You can easily find it in 7 Eleven. Also, they have amazing options on the cards which you can take it with you as a souvenir. Furthermore, you can download apps that can help you find a relevant bus or metro route.
We took a bus to the rainbow village, which is a little far from the city. However, it was worth it. The place is beautiful and shows how artistic the people of Taiwan are. We went on a weekend and hence, we found the place crowded. But we did manage to get spots to get clicked. I would suggest visiting the place a little early to find fewer people there. There are many shops inside wherein you can buy gifts for your friends. There are amazing postcards too.

Was not sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised by the small collection of colorful buildings. Backstory was intriguing and led to our curiosity. Glad we visited as the contrast of Rainbow Village and its neighbors is dramatic. If you pause and imagine the changes this country and city have undergone, Rainbow Village reflects part of those changes. Buildings have funky designs, forms and colors. Then also had cutouts based on the forms you could place your face through and take pictures. People in the area were very nice. Not too large of an area but interesting nonetheless.

Take 台中客運 (Taichung Tour Bus) Number 27 at Taichung Bus Station (opposite Taichung Train Station) and alight at 嶺東科技大學 (Lingdong Technological University). Bus journey takes about 50 mins. At the bus stop, continue by foot and turn right at the first traffic light. Walk another 10 mins and you will see the second traffic light. Turn right and walk straight, till you see a sign '彩虹村' at a T-junction. Follow the sign and you will reach the village.

Warning: try not to go in the evening as the place will be infested with mosquitoes. Even insect repellent did not help. The mosquito bites were big and super itchy, they won't go away even after 4 days!

If you plan to go Fengjia Night Market from the Rainbow Village, a cab costs NT210 and takes 20 mins only.

Happy visiting!

Just got back from Taiwan and I wanted to feedback on this attraction called Rainbow Village in Taichung. I had read about it on Tripadvisor but some recent reviews indicated that this place had been torn down for construction. Not true! If you had gone to this place by GPS, you are going to see a pile of construction rubble. That was what happened to me when I went last month. But after asking around the neighborhood, I finally figured out how to get to Rainbow Village. It's a little tricky, but you must drive (or ask your cab driver to drive) to the first block of Zhong Yong Rd (next to a temple), and then you'll see a sign that points you to the entrance of Rainbow Village. It's the only way in since construction started on the side of the village that used to be accessible. Hope this clears up any confusion as to how to get there.

The place is quite small and you should plan for 30 mins or so. To avoid crowds, go on a weekday morning. Basically, it's still a residential area, so don't expect to find public toilets or foods here.

I hopped in a cab this morning to head to the rainbow village. We pulled up to a large area of rubble and construction equipment. I made a joke, saying wouldn't it be terrible if we came all this way and that was all that was left. And then the cab stopped. The cabbie pointed at the pile of rubble and shrugged. Out with the old.

A NT$250/15min cab ride from Taichung metro station, it is well worth the visit. Not a very large area, only takes about 10mins to explore everything, but it was one of my highlights of Taichung. Very colourful and beautiful. Not too crowded on a weekday, only really tourists visiting. Our cab driver suggested he wait for us as it would be difficult to find a cab for return. This was very helpful. I would highly recommend you have a quick visit.

A special place, with colorful drawings by an old uncle. There are people staying in the houses so do not make noise. The place can be accesible by bus/van no. 99 from the taichung high speed rail station

This place is such a perfect place for instagrammable shots. Any corner is perfect but of course expect a lot of people so wait patiently until you can get your spot. Aside from that, this place will show you about art, love and passion. Definitely a perfect side trip if from taipei.

Very interesting place to learn about a grandpa and his passion to save a little village before destroying.

Great job “grandpa”!
