The east gate is not far from the Sol Hotel where i stayed. The gate is a nice piece of history. The teenagers hang out and practice their dancing skills in the underground in front of wall mirrors. I love watching them in the evening or afternoon.

This gate is the last major piece of HsinChu City's past. It is well maintained, and easy to get too. Be careful with traffic since this sits in the center of downtown. Enjoy, ExploreTraveler

This was a nice walk destination from the Ambassador Hotel. An evening hangout for local teens practicing their break dancing and coordinated dance moves.

By itself, there isn't much here to write home about. It is an interesting piece of Hsinchu's history, but it will take you less than 15 minutes to see all of the East Gate. That said, we got to see the hip hop artists practicing, and that was a treat. Many of them are quite talented. The East Gate, though... More

Hsinchu's East Gate is a central and pivotal fixture in Hsinchu City. What was once the entrance to the walled city, is now a historic site and community square fit for dancers, performers, and sight seers. Be dazzled by the moves of the dancing subculture groups of Taiwanese students performing their break dancing and hip hop moves. Don't be alarmed... More
