How to Explore Taichung?

Public Transport can be daunting for those who are unfamiliar. The best way to move around is to hire a driver for a day. We covered most of Taichung attractions here in one day with a Driver from Klook. It was a hassle-free and pleasant experience with the driver doubling up as a tour guide and logistic manager!
