Located 20 minutes from Taoyuan city centre. The visitor center of this chocolate factory is a three storey structure that offers some history about chocolate with an exhibition area, a mini theater, a DIY workshop and a kiddy pool/ fountain.

Arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, and there were still about 3 or 4 classes of children on field trips present. It was cost effective, and the exhibits about how cocoa beans are processed into food were well done and informative. The DIY class for chocolate was a nice outlet for our creative 9 year old. The restaurant food was actually... More

I really enjoyed the chocolate making class - I do however wish it was in English. The museum was very interesting. I wish they had more choices on chocolate it was very limited and the restaurant was not open. If you like chocolate you should enjoy this.

This chocolate museum is similar to the one in Paris, but it has a great DIY program and is multi level. This one seemed a bit more kid friendly. For NT 200, you get to make two chocolate pops and two chocolate donuts with three different types of chocolate and three different toppings. Until the end of December you can... More

While waiting for the chocolate DIY workshop to start, we walked around the museum on our own where you can view exhibits about history of chocolate and how it comes about. There were also movie screenings about how chocolate and cookies were made. We were each given a card which you can stamp with the stamp provided when you reached... More

It was raining when we arrived so we only can walk around in the main building. It comprises of only 3 floors, and a little history tour of chocolate. The cafe is a must to enjoy the drink and choc snacks. Good to visit for 2-3 hours with cafe, else 1 hour is enough.. Perhaps if the weather is good,... More

We decided to go to the republic of chocolate after watching the idol drama acted by Vaness 吴建豪. It was our first stop on 台湾好行小乌来线from taoyuan station which took 20mins. This place is a long 15mins walk from the bus stop which was quite alright because of the cool and windy weather. Admission fee includes a complimentary piece of chocolate.... More

Took my 8 year old son here last June. We both speak Mandarin (especially him), so we didn't have much trouble, but English service is typical for outside of Taipei. We toured around the museum, saw a "magic" show (boy got to participate), and made chocolate. Ended the day by buying some gifts and watching my son enjoy the water... More

This is in fact the Taiwan version of Roald Dahl's 'Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory'. Not simply a factory which mechanically produced all sorts of chocolate related merchandise - but with value-added elements like factory tour, chocolate making class, nice restaurant, funny/attractive backdrops for photo-taking purposes and last but not the least, an outlet for all to indulge in shopping activites...

Spacious space, great for kids to play, enjoyed the chocolate workshop (additional fees for it but you can use the voucher from your entrance fee to offset)
