Taoyuan is the city where exciting foreign travelers first arrive when visiting Taiwan. It is also the place they get on the plane bidding farewell to Taiwan reluctantly. Yet, if they do not stay in Taoyuan for one single moment, they may be oblivious to the city that features both natural landscape and cultural history. Cihu, a temporary graveyard for the late Chiang Kai-shek, has hundreds of Chiang's statues standing in the beautiful garden; Daxi Old Street extends early Taiwan's history and delicacies; Republic of Chocolate offers factory tours and handmade chocolate workshops; The glass skywalk at Xiaowulai hangs just over a waterfall and provides an overlook of the area; Travelers to Lala Mt. can look up to several millennia-old giant trees.
