While it isn't spectacular, it was a pretty cool thing for a Northerner from Canada to be on the Tropic of Cancer. It was crowded, and really not much to see other than a great photo op. I wouldn't recommend it on its own, but as an add-on to a day trip to somewhere else.

It's an important landmark in Taiwan, the line of tropic of cancer. There was a nice exhibition of sun dials when I visited, I think it is a long-term exhibition. There are 2 more monuments of cancer of Tropics in Taiwan, the other 2 are on the East Coast.
