    Hsinchu has a certain charm that many travellers find simply bewitching. Life is neither as fast-paced nor hectic as Taiwan's bigger cities, which is a big attraction. Your chosen travel itinerary can be as laid-back as you can make it, but you’ll still be able to see most, if not all, of the essential must-sees here.

    There are many things to see and do in Hsinchu, and most of them are found around the older part of the city. Once you’ve ticked those off, you can spend more time hiking and exploring the beautiful countryside – something that isn’t really possible in Taipei or other major cities around Taiwan.

    1

    Chenghuang Temple

    Also known as the Hsinchu City God Temple, Chenghuang Temple is visited by tourists from all over Taiwan. It’s one of the most vibrant places in the city. The market stalls in front of the temple offers tempting varieties of Taiwanese street food. A must-try are the Hsinchu meatballs, a yummy savoury delicacy that’s sure to pique your taste buds. Traditional Taiwanese opera is performed here in the expansive courtyard, but be sure to come early if you don’t want to miss it.

    Gangnan Coastal Area and Canal

    The Gangnan Coastal Area and canal used to be a swimming beach for locals but, seeing the potential as a nice attraction site, the city government took steps to develop the canal area. Today it features numerous facilities including shady picnic spots, beautiful bridges and bicycle paths. The canal is equally as picturesque at night.

    Green Grass Lake

    Also known as the Ching-Tsao Lake, this scenic spot is highly popular among couples – so popular in fact, that some have been known to propose to their loved ones by the lake.

    The island in the middle of the lake is especially charming. You can reach it across the decorative Yingyue Bridge and, once there, can enjoy the simple but pretty garden. There’s a small patio facing to the west – if you’re going to pop the question, doing so there at sunset would be extra-romantic.

    Image Museum of Hsinchu City

    Image Museum of Hsinchu City is a great place to learn more about the culture of this historical city, mostly through the medium of classic cinema.

    Jincheng Lake

    Although originally known as the Devil’s Lake, there is nothing demotic about Jincheng Lake. On the contrary, the rolling verdant hills of this scenic spot are a pleasant sight to behold. Besides that, you can also feast your eyes on the many wild fowls and migratory birds. Tip: September to May is the best time to indulge in some bird-watching, so come equipped with your binoculars and a picnic lunch.

    Feifeng Mountain

    Also known as Feifengshan, this mountain to the south-east of Hsinshu City offers many a scenic spot. Feifeng was so named because the locals pointed out that the shape of the slope resembled the shape of a descending Phoenix.

    The hiking trail to the peak is relatively easy and not as taxing as you’d expect. There are plenty of wooden benches and gentle slopes for you to rest periodically, and refreshments are sold near the top. It’s said that you can see the famous Taipei 101 building at the peak, if the weather is clear.

    18 Peaks Mountain

    There is a sprawling boulevard near the 18 Peaks Mountain and it’s perfect for a stroll on a cool morning. Otherwise, explore the park before embarking on a hike to the top of the mountain. The highest peak stands at 131.79 metres, so be prepared to start early or you may not be able to finish the hike on time.

    One of the other peaks is Shibajian, where you’ll find 33 stone statues of Kuan Yin, the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Each is about 1 metre in height, but they’re scattered about, so finding all 33 can be quite a challenge.
