Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Zhongli

Jungli (also Jhongli or Zhongli), formerly Chungli (and spelled Tionglek or Tiongliek in the 19th century), is a city in Taoyuan County of Taiwan. Zhongli is not always spelt consistently throughout the railway, bus stop or road plates, thus it can be quite confusing for English-only readers. It became a city before Taoyuan City, the county seat of Taoyuan County. Jungli is ranked 2nd by population in county-controlled city only after Taoyuan city. Historically, the city is the stage of the Jungli Incident (中壢事件) 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, a lot of the elderly could speak Hakka in addition to Mandarin and Taiwanese. In recent years a large number of foreign workers (mainly from the Philippines and Thailand) have also settled in and around the city due to the heavy industries in the suburbs of the city, making it a center for foreign laborers. The city of Jungli has 3 large parks and over 70 green reserves in the city for residences of Jungli city to enjoy.
