Taichung station is brand new (as at feb 2019, parts on the lower level are still under construction). The old station is just adjacent - there are of nice modern art sculptures outside too. A little ‘rough around the edges’ at night.

It is a well reserved place where you can see the good combine of old and new architecture buildings. I wish that the government have a more keen notice on hygiene of area ( see many used bottles and rubbish there)

Both the old and new Taichung Station are put side by side. What a stylish way to combine the two! Its a happy space with lots of sculpture and IG worthy spots. Don't miss it.
