Taichung, Taiwan

Taichung is a major commercial city on the west coast of Taiwan, and is known as "Skyscraper City" and as the "hub" of the global bike, and bike parts manufacturing industry.

On the face of things the city is ultra modern, very clean, and rather spangly with it. Step a few blocks away from the glitz and you enter the smaller back streets, where night markets and hawker food stalls draw you back in time, a true contrast and a very welcomed one.

Here are a few images from a couple of evenings spent in town on my most recent trip to Taiwan, sadly time was very limited, but i hope you enjoy the selection.
