What to see in Taichung - Xinshe Castle

Taichung is the third biggest city in Taiwan. Just like Taipei and Kaohsiung, Taichung is also very popular amongst the tourists. Some of my friends even said that Taichung is their most favourite city in Taiwan. Other that the nearby popular destinations like Sun Moon Lake and Cingjing Farm, there is an attraction located right at the outskirt of Taichung named Xinshe Castle.

Xinshe Castle took its inspiration from a European castle however, please note that this is no historical castle left behind by the ancestors from long time ago. The whole area is in fact, man-made by the Taiwanese.

Being man-made does not mean that Xinshe Castle is not beautiful. If you visit Xinshe Castle in spring or summer, the whole area is filled with lovely pinkish flowers.

Visitors can roam the place in a leisure pace because the castle ground alone is very big with a swan lake and big garden surrounding the castle. There is also a restaurant in one of the building where visitors can get food to enjoy.

Saw a lady cosplaying as a knight here. Her costume is really amazing with all those details. Her cosplay also matches the whole atmosphere in Xinshe Castle. The Taiwanese really loves Japanese's culture and there is a close tie between the two countries since long time ago, in the war era.

Xinshe Castle is one of those places which you can take beautiful picture as many as you want. I still cannot get my eyes out of the pink flowers.
