Welcome to Hsinchu

Long a base for traditional industries such as glass- and noodle-making, Hsinchu leapt into the modern era in 1980 with the establishment of Hsinchu Science Park, a centre for semiconductors and tech modelled on California's Silicon Valley. Accounting for a hefty slice of Taiwan's GDP, it's also why foreign faces are relatively common in the city.
