In Taichung, public bus rides were free for the first 10 kilometres. Each stop along the bus route was clearly displayed, so it wasn't too difficult getting around on public transport. Ryan was holding Easycards with reloadable funds, which we would use to pay for transportation and purchases in 7-11.
@ Luce Chapel, Tunghai University 东海大学
The main attraction in this campus was the uniquely designed Christian chapel. This was THE landmark in Taichung.
@ National Museum of Natural Sciences 科学博物馆
A short bus ride took us to the science centre. Here Ryan was watching a 3D animated movie.
And then we watched another movie in this odd sphere-shaped cinema. The visuals were projected all over the ceiling, making you feel very much being in the movie. However, they played a boring marine documentary, which I slept through most of it.
There was this video game where you make your race horse advance by concentrating your thoughts. And believe it or not, Ryan won the game beating two adults and a kid.
There was an exhibition hall with dinosaurs on display.
An antique gigantic clock of some sort.
@ Botanical Garden 植物园
Had an evening walk in the garden beside the science centre. Every other person there was catching Pokemon.
@ Fengjia night market 逢甲夜市
A very lively night market located beside the Fengjia University. Being a weekend night, it was overcrowded with campus students and shoppers. Stalls were offering 'student prices' for food, drinks and electronical gadgets.
