• Travel to the Taiwanese city of Hsinchu, China's Windy City

    2010-03-12

    When most visitors embark on an excursion to China, their destinations are limited to the imperial city of Beijing, the industrial capital of Shanghai or the luxurious port city of Hong Kong. Yet in recent years, many western visitors have been branching out in their journeys to find new and unique travel destinations, one of which is the Taiwanese city of Hsinchu.

    Hsinchu is located in the Northwestern area of Taiwan and its history can be traced back for nearly 400 years when it was originally named Chuchang. The city is known for its glass production; an art introduced during the Japanese colonial era and has developed as business capital for the Island.

    Tourists can explore the city's skill with glass at the Craft Glass Museum, which features an extensive gallery dedicated to some of the city's greatest artisans. Art fans might also enjoy a trip to the Municipal Image Museum, where photography and performance art converge, and the warehouses behind the railway station, which have become workshops and exhibitions for local artists.

    Travelers can also find cultural sites like the Taoist City God Temple and the historic East Gate, or explore the natural environment at the Hsinchu Botanical Garden and Green Grass Lake.
