Several tourists who visit Taiwan would only put Taipei in their itinerary as it is Taiwan’s most famous city being its capital.  Our family tried to look for other places to visit in Taiwan since we stayed there for four days and restricting our itinerary just in Taipei seems a no-no for us.  We found Taichung.       Taichung…
