Zhubei City

Zhubei City (Chinese: 竹北市) is a county-controlled city and the county seat of Hsinchu County, Taiwan. Zhubei's prior name "red fur field" (紅毛田) was attributed to the era of Japanese rule during the Second World War. Over the recent years, Zhubei has become a popular city of immigration as the Hsinchu County government has focused most of its infrastructure here.

Empire of Japan

In 1941, Kyūminato Village (旧港庄) and Rokka Village (六家庄) merged to become Chikuhoku Village (竹北庄, modern Zhubei) under Shinchiku District (新竹郡), Shinchiku Prefecture.

Republic of China

Zhubei was originally a township under Hsinchu County from 1950-1988. In October 1988, Zhubei Township was promoted to a county-controlled city.


Zhubei borders Hukou Township to the north, Zhutong to the northeast, and the Taiwan Strait to its west. It is the discharge point of the Fongshan River and the Touqian River to the Taiwan Strait. Zhubei remains to be a satellite city of Hsinchu City after Hsinchu City had reformed to become a special municipality in 1982. Due to the disintegrate of Hsinchu City from the Hsinchu County and the naturalization of the Hsinchu County seat, Zhubei has acquired an increasing capital inflow of real estates and population.
