Known its good weather, Taichung boasts an interesting set of cultural attractions, including many temples showing the development of religious architectural styles in the area and forming focal points for most tours of Taichung.
You've now added Wuling to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to National Museum of Natural Science and Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan). Kids will enjoy Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village and Wenwumiaohoushan Park. Go for a jaunt from Taichung to Yuchi to see Wenwu Temple about 1h 15 min away. Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Mark Taiwan.

Plan my trip to Taichung with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Taichung is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Indochina Time (ICT) to Taipei Standard Time (CST) is 1 hour. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in December, with highs in Taichung at °C and lows at °C. On the 25th (Tue), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Taipei.
