While joining the tournament, spectators are also invited to tour around the city during the free time. Taoyuan is a peaceful city and a popular tourist city among locals, and it is noted for its rich cultural and tourist sites, such as Cihu for marks of Chiang’s Family and Chiang Kai-Shek Mausoleum and Daxi Old Street for the reminiscent atmosphere and Hakka dishes and snacks. The area of Cihu Mausoleum is about 30 hectares surrounded by mountains with the mesmerizing Back Cihu Lake in the middle. The visitor permit is required for entering the lake which can be applied on-line at http://backcihu.tycg.gov.tw/Cihu/ (currently only available in Chinese). After 2-3 hours wandering around this tranquil and mysterious place, you may drop-by the well-known Daxi Old Street to savor the traditional delicacies in the Taiwan nostalgia atmosphere, including glutinous rice ball soup, tofu pudding, maltose, smoked bean curd and more. Some of the traditional folklore stores here offer some old-time fun and remains. With a nice location in northern Taiwan, Taoyuan is about a 50 minute ride or a 19-minutes by HSR to Taipei City for you to explore Taipei splenders without hustle and bustle. At TravelKing, we have Taoyuan hotels near the event, available for you to book them online, fast and convenient!
