ASEAN Plaza

Posted Date:2018/04/26 1169

Introduction

Anchor
The ASEAN Plaza nearby Taichung Railway Station was originally the First Public Market in the Japanese colonial period. The soaring buildings were indicators of a once prosperous shopping district. Today, it is transformed into a cultural hub featuring an integration of ASEAN culture and local Taiwanese culture.
It has an underground parking lot, boutique clothing stores, foot court, movie theater, KTV, billiard pool, western-style restaurants, etc. Since it also has an abundance of Southeast Asian food vendors and stores, it is where migrant workers like to gather and hang out. Thus, it is nicknamed Little Southeast Asia.
A visit to the ASEAN Plaza would feel like a trip to Southeast Asia not only because of the unique shopping experience, but also of the Vietnamese coffee, satay, fried bananas and other Southeast Asian delicacies available in this exotic area in downtown Taichung.

    It's okay for souvenirs, but kind of run down

    Traveler rating:3 2017-05

    Located near the Taichung train station, this mall is kind of like an indoor flea market or an indoor day market. It is sort of run down and the choices are limited, but if you have the time you...

    移工聚落

    Traveler rating:5 2018-12

    以前叫第一廣場,因為東南亞移工會聚集在這邊,逐漸形成特有的聚落,因此改名叫東協廣場。裡面有餐廳,超市,卡拉OK,各式店家雜貨店,踏進去會忘記身在台灣。

    感覺來到了東南亞國家

    Traveler rating:3 2019-05

    一走進去幾乎都是東南亞人,感覺到了異地。是一種很特別的經驗,如果想買東南亞商品,可以來裡面走走,也是一種另類體驗。
