shih (municipality), T'ai-pei hsien (county), northern Taiwan. It lies west of Taipei city, in the northern part of the western coastal plain. Situated on the western bank of the Tan-shui River, the city developed as a major commercial centre for a surrounding fertile agricultural region that produces rice, sugarcane, and tea. Food canning, woodworking, and chemical, textile, and machinery manufacturing are the major industries in the municipality, and clay and coal are extracted nearby. San-ch'ung is a western suburb and serves as a residential area for Taipei city, to which it is linked by the T'ai-pei Bridge across the Tan-shui River. A north-south freeway and the West Line railway connect San-ch'ung with Chi-lung (Keelung) to the northeast and with Pan-ch'iao to the south. Grass Mountain Park, 8 miles (13 km) north of San-ch'ung, is a major tourist attraction. Pop. (2000 est.) 380,084.
