Rainbow Village Taichung bursts with surreal artwork painted onto the sides of its buildings. Once a part of a network of inexpensive homes given to veterans of World War II and the Chinese Civil War, the village now contains rejuvenated structures painted by Huang Yung-fu Huang, a local artist who covered the buildings in colorful depictions of Chinese characters. Though you don't need to pay an entry fee, you can always donate, or alternatively purchase a souvenir from the gift shop, themed after the artwork in the village.

If you're in the area, this is worth checking out! It is a bit smaller than I anticipated, but is filled with lots of colorful murals that seem larger than life.

Otherwise, with how long it takes to get here with public transport, it may not be worth it. Note: Visited prior to COVID, so things may be different.
Super cool place. Went there with wife and daughter and everyone really enjoyed it. Even got the chance to take a couple pictures with the guy who started it all!
