Taichung is about half the size of Taipei (about 1 million people). It sits on the western plains of the island, so, unlike Taipei and Keelung, it's got room to spread out. Even though it's also in Taiwan, I didn't feel quite so crowded in here. The downside to this great city is that it gets all the typhoons.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
