LAKE SIDE TEA AND SHOPPING STREET

Wenhsin South 5th Street and Hsiang Shang South Road

ADD YOUR RATING & REVIEW | VIEW VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS

If Ching Ming 1st Street--also known as Taichung's 'tea street'--is starting to seem a bit crowded, head for a newer, just as nice, version.  Literally named 'Lake Water Shore', this very attractive pedestrians-only street is shorter than 'tea street' but even nicer in some ways.  There is outdoor seating with about a dozen establishments, including a neat-looking Second Cup cafe (11 a.m.-10 p.m. weekdays, open to 11 p.m. weekends), a good selection of excellent art and home decoration shops, a Ba Fen Baau Chinese restaurant and a Chun Shui Tang ('spring water') tea house, just like the one at 'tea street'. 

A great plus for this street is the fact that it is directly opposite one of Taichung's finest parks--Feng Le Sculpture Parks--and is adjacent to a large, equally-pleasant, tree-shaded public parking lot.  To get there, take Wenhsin Road, section 4, south until it becomes Wenhsin South Road (after crossing Nantun Rd.), turn right at Wenhsin South 5th Street, at the brown sign to Feng Le Park, and it's on the left just before the next light.
