Known its good weather, Taichung boasts an interesting set of cultural attractions, including many temples showing the development of religious architectural styles in the area and forming focal points for most tours of Taichung.
Shop till you drop at Yu Jan Shin Main Store and Audit Village. Your inner history buff will appreciate Taichung Baptist Church and Dongpubu Nongbuluo. Change things up with these side-trips from Taichung: Fangyuan Lighthouse (in Fangyuan), Fenghuanggu Bird Park (in Nantou City) and Yuchi (Sun Moon Lake & Wenwu Temple). There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Alishan National Forest Recreation Area, relax in the rural setting at Cingjing Veterans Farm, identify plant and animal life at Kaomei Wetland, and explore the world behind art at National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Taichung trip planner .

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Taichung is an approximately 10-hour flight. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in October: high temperatures in Taichung hover around 34°C and lows are around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) so you can travel to Taipei.

Taipei
Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
Get some cultural insight at Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) and National Palace Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Yangmingshan National Park and Yeh Liu Geo Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Japanese-style residential (in Ruifang), Long Dong Wan Cape Trail (in Gongliao) and Shifen Waterfall (in Pingxi). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Ximending, browse the different shops at Taipei 101, trek along 18 Fen Guai Zun Trail, and witness a stunning natural landmark at Beitou Hot Spring.

Plan my Taipei trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by train from Taichung to Taipei takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. In October, daily temperatures in Taipei can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
