Visitors able to see the city such as Hsinchu (新竹), two counties away on a clear day. It also offers beautiful and colorful light show during the night too!
However, Sky Dream was closed due to the recent coronavirus pandemic in Taiwan. I only manage to take the picture of Sky Dream instead of a ride. Nevertheless, the view of the tallest Ferris Wheel in Taiwan was breathtaking, especially during night with the colorful light. It is the eye of Taichung with spectacular views over mountains, sea, river and town too!
