Take a day trip to the nearby Hakka village of Meinong to experience traditional Hakka culture, and find out about Meinong paper umbrella art.
If you take the MRT to Formosa Boulevard station, you should stop off and take photos of the fabulous Dome of Light which is the world's biggest glass art installation created by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata.
