Whenever I drink Bubble/Boba Tea, I think of Taichung.


I remember one time I saw Pilot Guide/Lonely Planet about Shanghai. The host was brought to a Bubble tea house. It was almost a copy of this one in Taichung :

I was thinking ...like..."man it's Taiwan/Taichung culture! not Shanghai/China"

Taichung's tea culture has conquered most Chinese or Asian world. However, most ppl don't know it's originated from Taichung.

i dunno, to me, taichiung seems like a city flourishing with gambling, prostitution and taiwan yakuza/mafia.

Tilljacker Jan 5, 2007 5:39 PM

Nice photos... we remember our time at Taichung in 1999 :tup:

could anyone post some pictures of this one?

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o...18-010_WEB.jpg

we took this Photo in November 1999, it's located at the park near the hotel "Grand Formosa" (Maybe five Minute walking) We (my wife and I) are very interested in seeing that construction finished...

Thank you
Till

Maybe that's the impression from the media. Those problems are everywhere in Taiwan not just Taichung.

Taichung has a lot of lands for building some single buildings for pubs, tea houses, and "night clubs". Maybe, those "night clubs" are so grand that make ppl think Taichung has those problems u mentioned above.

Taipei has a lot of night clubs too. Downtown Taipei just doesn't have enough lands for building night clubs as grand as those in Taichung. The tea houses and resturants posted above can kind of give you an idea why those night clubs are so grand.

This really makes Taichung special. That's why I like Taichung. Especially, those night clubs make that new district like Las Vegas of Taiwan. :)

I now consider Taichung to be the best place to live in Taiwan. I use to live in Taipei, and I loved it there, but I feel Taichung is now better. One thing is ofcourse the weather here. Taichung has the best weather. It is not to hot or to cold. And it doesnt rain that much and when typhoons come to Taiwan they always miss Taichung. Plus I do like how Taichung reminds me of back home in Dallas Texas. Taichung has so much space that it resembles a Western City. I still miss living in Taipei because is has great transpertation, but I will pass that for the weather.

I live and work right behind that building. It now is finished and the top floors is a hotel. I will take some pics for you.

If you have a car, public transport becomes quite a bit less relevant. How's the parking situation in Taichung?

Parking in Taichung is bad in most places. Well, it depends on where you are going and the time of day. In the West District it is bad, this is because most of the offices are located here. But if you go to a store or a restruant, they do have parking. As for parking on the street, I dislike the way the parking fees are set up. In Taichung you have to pay to park on the street from around 7 am to Midnite, 24/7. Unlike Taipei where it is, and I could be wrong on the exact hours, 8 am to 7 pm M - F. But I cant complain, parking is bad in any major city in the world. I just wish Taichung could do something with its scooter parking, like what Taipei did. Taipei made some nice parking places for scooters only. Then it makes it easier to walk on the sidewalk.

Hey, thank you anyiliang,

btw. what do the german flag means in your profile? I come from germany.. :D

anyiliang Jan 17, 2007 6:46 AM

Well, I am German-Swedish born in America. But I claim German-American. So where are you living at?

Have you ever been to Taiwan or even Taichung?

Tilljacker Jan 18, 2007 3:29 PM

I am living in a small village near Goslar (80km south of Hanover) and yes, if have been in Taiwan in 1999. My company built a production plant near Taichung and we lived in Taichung in the Hotel national and later in the Formosa appartments(?) (in the same building as Grand formosa hotel)

There i took the Photo.

Razqal Jul 25, 2007 7:56 PM

looks like alot of development has been going on in taichung but hasn't been covered here in this forum. the city looks like it's getting a pretty dense skyline. I found someone's website that posted alot of new pics of taichung with a lot of new (looking), nice offices and apartments and ongoing construction. there's alot of buildings i've never seen before.

and does anybody know the status of the taichung opera house? has it been definitely approved, budgeted and will it be built? if so, when? they better build that sucker or i'll be really pissed.

this building is really cool. taiwan needs more of this type of architecture and more all-glass cladded buildings instead of brown or grey, stucco-type/bathroom tile covered buildings.

Razqal Jul 25, 2007 9:05 PM

i found a website for taichung opera house. there's no english translation. does anyone know if it says if the new opera house designed by toyo ito will be constructed and when? there's pics of the vacant lot that the opera house will be built surrounded by newly built luxury apartments.
