Welcome to Jhongli Hotel & Information
Jhongli formerly Chungli, and spelled Tionglek or Tiongliek in the 19th century) is a city in Taoyuan County of Taiwan, the Republic of China. It became a city before Taoyuan City. Historically, the city is the stage of the Jhongli incident of 1977, the most significant event of the democratization movements of Taiwan prior to the 1980s. Ethnically, it is considered a kind of capital city for the Hakka people who live in great numbers here and in surrounding areas. In recent years a large number of foreign workers (mainly from the Philippines and Thailand) have also settled in and around the city, making it a center for foreign laborers.
Jhongli is served by both National Highway No. 1 and Provincial Highway No. 66. The nationally owned e-go highway buses, near the Jhongli Station, are an inexpensive means of transport to other cities. In addition, the THSR Taoyuan Station provides fast connections to other Taiwanese cities. As of 2007, Jhongli also has its own Taiwan High Speed Rail terminal.
