Discover the neighborhoods of Hsinchu


Hsinchu, a city dating back to nearly 400 years, is one of the oldest cities in Taiwan, and the oldest in the northern part of the country. Today, Hsinchu is most famous for its production of decorative glass, having stayed the center of this industry for over 40 years. The city is served by Taiwan’s efficient rail system, with express and local trains arriving at Hsinchu Train Station. Travelers to Hsinchu shouldn’t miss a visit to the Craft Glass Museum, especially considering how much connection this city has to the decorative glass industry. The museum is located right in the city center, easily accessible by car or public transportation, and there are several hotels in the city, ranging from modest guesthouses to large hotels.

Hsinchu’s Science Park is one of the major landmarks of the city, often serving as a convention or events center for major corporations. Given the city’s very small size, it’s surprising how many top-class luxury hotels this city has to offer. The city’s economy is relatively strong, and the median income is actually much higher than that of the capital city. So travelers looking for exclusive accommodations and exciting shopping will be sure to find it here.
