We drove from the southern tip of Taiwan all the way up to Taroko gorge. It was a really beautiful drive and there is a lot to see. We stopped many times along the way.

The East coastal area of Taiwan offers magnificent views of the coastal scenery, While it is a long trip it provides many photo opportunities.

Riding a two wheeler up and down the east coast is one of the most enjoyable things in Taiwan. The stretch from Hualien to Taitung is just stunning. TIP: The view is better going from Taitung to Hualien because you'll have better views of the beach/ocean and mountains. If your'e going from Hualien to Taitung it's still nice, but the... More

There are many places to explore along the East Coast. Most of the spots are free! (hence be prepared to meet a lot of tourists during peak seasons). Nice place to drive along and enjoy the scenic Sea view.

Passed this information center just accidentally but impressed! Great historical story of Taiwan island formation, marine animals and aboriginal introduction. Facilities are new and interesting for child and adult with great view of the sea. The gift store is a little boring and needs some improvement.

We rented bikes from the Giant bicycle shop in Hualien. They have an A to B bicycle rental program where you can rent a bike in one city and return it in another. It was 1200NTD for three days for a bicycle, saddle bags, lock and pump. They also had tire repair kits for sale, not very expensive. The only... More
