Taitung Railway Art Village
After the South Link Line was open to vehicular traffic, the volume of freight and passengers was too large more than what Taitung old station could handle. Thus it was faced with the fate of abolishment as the new station was under construction. In order to preserve the significantly meaningful old railway over the past 80 years, Taitung Railway Art Village is thus established to keep memories of railway culture. This art village maintains the original appearance of the railway bureau at that time, having the nation’s only triangle turnaround loop and Kuanghua Express. In the porch, there are modern installation artistic works and old-fashioned railroad reflecting each other. Rail enthusiasts and photography lovers shall never miss here.

Fun old station.Old typical station with a japan era train rotting away. Did a walkaround, but nothing there to give it a good review.
easier accessed from bus stationlocated just behind the taitung bus station. 24hrs access. open area. no tickets required. recommended to visit at night for the lightwork displays.
Not muchTaitung Railway Art Village is an area where the older rail station used to be converted into a nice green space with a few art works scattered and surrounded by some hip looking bars and restaurants along with a performance space. There wasn’t much going on during the weekday early afternoon but there is a handful of photogenic spots to see while waiting for the bus. As Taitung has an abundance of open green spaces, there are better spots to relax at.
Okay for stroll or picnic or a game of frisbee.Right behind the bus station. The Showtime Plaza mall is just across the road. Basically what is left of the old railway station. Where we had a brief walk before moving over to the neighbouring Tiehua Music Village which is more interesting. You can view an old train and some rail tracks. When we were there, many of the buiidings and sheds seemed to be undergoing repairs.
Nice place to stroll, shop or restNice place to walk around without worrying about cars or motorbikes. There was a small street fair starting at 4 PM when we were there on a Friday afternoon. There were some small shops in a building made of shipping containers. My daughter enjoyed the rope swings by the old train station.
