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.

Rainbow Village Taichung Reviews
色彩非常繽紛的眷村，他在清新溫泉的山腳下，如果有去清新溫泉的話，回程可以順便去參訪，個人是覺得因為色彩用的很艷麗所以會讓人家覺得有點詭異的感覺 more »The color is very beautiful village, he is in the fresh spring of the mountain, if there is to fresh spring, the return can go to, the person is because the color is very beautiful so people will feel a little
交通の便はよくありませんが、高鉄の台中駅からなら近く、バスで１０分ほどです。 村とは言いますが、町中の一角です。日本の家で言えば１０軒位がカラフルに塗られている感じ。速足で見れば１０分、写真撮ってわさわさしても４０分くらいです。 とてもカラフルであり、独創的なキャラクターが多いので、写真とかにはいいです。記念品が多いのには少し辟易しますが。 我が家は蓬家夜市付近が宿でしたので、タクシーで寄... more »It is not easy to get there, but it is close to Taichung Station and is about 10 minutes by bus. It is called a village, but it is a corner of the town. In Japanese houses, about 10 houses are painted colorfully. It takes about 10 minutes if it sees quickly, and it takes a picture and it is about 40 minutes even if i take a picture and it wasabi. It's very colorful and has a lot of original characters, so it's good for photography. It is a little tired to have a lot of memorabilia. Our house was an inn near The Night Market, so we stopped by a taxi and waited for them. It was raining for 400 yuan to the vicinity of The Aiyanight Market with five people, and i think it was good that it was a little detour. (Coin lockers at Takatetsu Daichung Station are expensive when you put up a suitcase.) )
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.
