Visit the second-oldest and the first private university in Taiwan at Tunghai University. This establishment boasts a peculiar-looking Christian chapel that resembles a cone, as well as landscaped lawns, impressive school buildings, and even its own dairy shop. All dairy products come from the university's own cows on campus, so make sure you try the organic milk or ice cream. If you visit while school is in session, don't be surprised if the students stop you to chat and practice their English.
