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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sun Moon Lake Toushehuo Basin Recreation Farm and Taida Shandi Farm. Venture out of the city with trips to Sunglungyen Waterfall (in Nantou), Ci'en Pagoda (in Yuchi) and Outdoors Taiwan Tandem Paragliding - South of Taiwan (in Puli). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Dakeng No.2 Trail, don't miss a visit to Singang Fenqtain Gong, walk around 921Earthquake Memorial Park, and trek along Dakeng No. 4 Trail.

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Songshan Ciyou Temple and Elephant Trunk Rock. Venture out of the city with trips to Nanfangao Lookout (in Nan'ao), Neipi Beach (in Su'ao) and Yilan Lover's Bay (in Wujie). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Chih Nan Temple (Zhinan Temple), contemplate the waterfront views at Lotus Pond, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Qixing Mountain, and get a sense of history and politics at Taipei Guest House.
