    I took my parents to Taichung recently, we stopped by at "Rainbow Village", I think it is cool that an ex-military officer stopped at the army and started painting a little village in all the colors...

    The village is very colourful, definitely a good place to take many photos and even an insta-worthy shot. However, do try to come earlier in the morning to avoid the crowd if not you will just be...
