After reaching Wuri Station by HSR we reconnected a regular train to Taichung Rail Station, which was packed to the realm, making it more inconvenience with all our luggage. The station is a city landmark of Taichung and a symbol of an era, and is a renaissance-style building from the time of Japanese control of Taiwan. It was built in 1917. Its construction represents the development of the city of Taichung and the construction of the railroad in Taiwan.
We stayed in newly renovated Plaza Hotel. The location is great, 3-min walk from Taichung train station. It is very accessible as there are many buses going to everywhere in Taichung. The rooms are exquisite though small but was adequate for two. Clean and come with free buffet breakfast.
