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. It's a fairly quick visit, even when stopping to take pictures, so I would only recommend coming out here if you have a car or an easy way of transport. 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!
