Rainbow Village Taichung, Nantun

3.8
Rainbow Village Taichung bursts with surreal artwork painted onto the sides of its buildings. Once a part of a network of inexpensive homes given to veterans of World War II and the Chinese Civil War, the village now contains rejuvenated structures painted by Huang Yung-fu Huang, a local artist who covered the buildings in colorful depictions of Chinese characters. Though you don't need to pay an entry fee, you can always donate, or alternatively purchase a souvenir from the gift shop, themed after the artwork in the village.

  • When I imagine the "village" of Japan, it is small enough to be honest. There is a glittering Insta spot in one corner of the park. It is about 15 minutes from Taichung Station in Takatsuki, and there are plenty of bus escans.

  • I was able to meet Mr. Huang! Grandfather who does not think that he is over 90 years old. I was able to take a picture with you. The rainbow village was colorful and had a wonderful view of the world. Souvenirs also had more items than I thought. There is no doubt that i will continue to take pictures of the shutter.

  • Tiny clusters of beautifully painted house 😍 Lively colors which is pleasing to the eyes. The paintings woken up the kid in me! Its playful and vibrant which is nice. Looking through the paintings, I noticed most of it are depictions of monsters in the legends (or so I thought), also there are nice messages from the painter or random thoughts also painted there. A lot of people visit the place so it is a bit hard to take great photos and wait for your turn. But the over all experience is great! One more thing, this is a small village preserved and surrounded now by modern society, tall buildings, establishments and schools. The village is open from 8:00 to 18:00 it is adviseable not to go there in the evening, lots of mosquitoes
  • This place is a small mini-village of old buildings that were salvaged and painted by one man. In Taichung, it is a bit of a landmark and the man is a mini-celebrity. He is usually at the village willing to take a picture with visitors. The art is pretty cool, very positive vibe. There are a couple food vendors and places to buy souvenirs in the village as well. Take your time to look around and snap a few pics of the designs on the buildings. There is also some written information about the village, it’s origin, and how it came to be. It’s a little hard to get to. You will need to Uber or motorbike your way there. There may be buses, but that can be a bit too confusing if you don’t speak Chinese. With not a whole lot to do in Taichung, it’s worth a quick stop if you’re nearby. It’s totally free as well. The guy seems to support the village out of the kindness of his heart and not for the money. Cool stop if nearby, but not an absolute must see. Can quickly see in maybe 15 minutes or browse for longer.
