Taichung In 21 Hours

Taichung, located at the direct opposite of Hualien, was our 4th National Meeting venue last weekend. Never been there before, I struggled between mid-terms one week after and the spirit of adventure for a few days before deciding duty over self - to attend the meeting. Of course, the lure of a new city is part of the factor.

Taichung train station still preserves the pre-war columns and ceilings.

Photo taken after the NM, (from left) rep. from ChungShan Medical University, ChangGeng Medical University, ChangGeng Chinese Medicine, and me. Background: main campus of China Medical University (CMU).

The brand new teaching hospital of CMU - looks more like a hotel.

Visited Taichung's premiere high school - Taichung First Boys' Senior High School.

Taichung park - patch of green and aqua in the bustling city.

Loved the park, especially when it is located right at the busiest center of town.

A view of Taichung city - third largest after Taipei and Kaohsiung. Taichung is awarded numerous times for its orderly city planning and tourism promotion activities - something Penang should learn.

Back after 21 hours - the fastest train takes 3 hours 45 mins between Taichung and Hualien.
