We were here a bit too late, too late to walk around the hills on the island, but we think it's a perfect time for the quietness and the light

One of the highlight of my trip. We reached there close to 6pm. With the sun ray being more subdued at that timing, the whole area looked exceptionally beautiful and serene. On the one side is mountains with sea of clouds. On the other is...More

The view is beautiful but not the best I’ve seen along the east coast- probably due to the gloomy weather.

We went on a day where weather was forecast to be cold with occasional rain. Even before we headed for Sanxiantai, we were advised by our local host to be prepared for the strong winds and colder temperature at the seaside. He was right. Standing...More

This is a famous tourist stop about a 90-minute drive north of Taitung on Hwy 9. Free to enter, but 60NT$ to park. A multi-level walking bridge, built to look like a dragon, connects to a small island with a lighthouse. Very scenic views all...More

You can buy it on the bus itself or at the Taitung main bus station. You can get on and off any of those sites with the one day pass but buses are limited to 4 each way in a day so choose wisely your timing and attractions.
