Miaoli, laid back cultural haven or tumbleweed town?

There is one,it looks like a Tie Pi Wu though.
There is also a Starbucks in Houlong and Toufen but not Miaoli city . :grin:
Looking back at my reviews they were rather generous, yours are pretty accurate. There’s a lot NOT to be said about Miaoli City.
Indeed Miaoli county is a much more worthwhile place to explore . Bombing the dragon festival in Miaoli city is cool after new year.
