Beautiful wetlands teeming with life made surreal by the sight of wind turbines on the horizon. It's the prime spot for a bird-and-sunset-watching combo in the greater Taichung area. Take a local train to Qingshui (清水), then board bus 178 (NT$20, 30 minutes). There are only five buses a day, so consider taking a taxi (NT$280).
