Hsinchu County has a new attraction for anime lovers. The Zhudong Animation and Comic Creative Park, the first park of its kind in Taiwan, was opened last December.
Showcasing work by comic artists from Taiwan, among its other attractions are the world’s first Pokémon-theme station and a robot-themed coffee shop. The park is conveniently located right beside Zhudong Railway Station, east of Hsinchu City, a stop on the Neiwan Branch Railway Line, popular with day-trippers. The park can also be reached by taking the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle network’s Lion’s Head Mountain Route.
