Hsinchu is a very small city compare to Taipei City. You may just need to spent 1-2 days to travel around Hsinchu is more than enough.
A good location for business travellers who visit the nearby industrial and science parks. Adequate shopping malls and night markets for food.
A great little city easily accessed by local train. You can come for the shopping or various restaurants in the area.
It's only a few stops out of New Taipei County and not as crowded. There seems to be a large expat community living there, and a higher frequency of advertising in English compared to other cities of Taiwan. There are many restaurants in the area serving North American style food and drinks.
The 17km coastline cycling path is my favourite. It winds along a long sandy beach, a wide mangrove area, some rural area, several iron bridges, a series of wind turbine.
Suitable for all ages. There are a number of bike rental shops at Nanliao where you can find cycles for 1 to 4 people, some with motors to save your energy.
The place we stayed in, is about 15 mins normal walk to the train station. The places of interest are quite far.
We went to the Hakka Village and Jin Yong Farm. All on taxi. The people are friendly and helpful. Better than those living in the big cities. This state is better for people who appreciates cultures. Not much shopping though.
the people in Hsinchu is so nice and helpful. Even though they don't really speak English but they would try to find a way (whatever it is) to help you even when you don't ask.
The city overall is so calm, organized well.
The Mega City Shopping Centre is a nice place for family with kids. You can definitely spend the whole day there tirelessly.
good seafood in the fish village. the old street is also a great place to visit. people are nice and friendly.
good for,one night stay.
valu for money, clean & confortable room, nice bed, polite and helpful, friendly staff, very enjoying, great breakfast, close to city, by walking distance to temple street,
Quiet and friendly place... as this is the business city in Taiwan... nothing exciting but you'll have what you need in this city!
Check out the Taiwan Pavilion if you have time to spare. Tickets cost 250 NT but the globe room shows a nifty 360 movie all about Taiwan.
Hsinchu is the place where the world's number one and number two wafer fabs are located. It is the Silicon Valley of Taiwan.
It is a place where most Hakkas are found other than Miaoli. It is also famous for Tong flowers other than Miaoli.
a nice place on the heart of taiwan, there is a bullet train station also. taipei is just 20 mins away
Hsinchu has a bunch of great museums, and parks. The central park is an excellent urban escape with hiking and a great cityscape to view.
Also, the hakka style food found there is amazing, and there are a number of shopping areas if you are so inclined.
Hsinchu is alittle bit dry and quiet. Food there is good and people are friendly. The 2 Theme Park there are a hit for the kids that are travelling with us.
강물이 잘 보여 참 좋았다. 배를 타고 연인들이 노는 모습도 광경이다. 별로 불편한 것이 없었던것 같다. 다만 지하철역에서는 조금 떨어져 있어서 택시를 타든지 아니면 날씨가 시원할 때 도보로 약 15분 정도
Traveling in Hsinchu can be a pain . Although the downtown area of Hsinchu is small , you probably need to walk a lot to reach the place you want to go .
Hsinchu night clubs are in small-scale , but it worths to go , as people joining are truly seeking for fun .
