Hualien
Hualien sits between the Pacific Ocean and the Central Mountain Range on the eastern side of Taiwan, making it one of the most scenic spots in the country. With its pleasant climate and stunning views, international visitors flock to Hualien, where there’s plenty in the way of accommodation and other amenities – not to mention the famous Taroko Gorge just a few miles away.

Hualien is Taiwan's biggest county and much of it is made up of some of Mother Nature’s best work. From the impressive gorges at Taroko National Park to the striking natural landscapes of the East Coast National Scenic Area, visitors to the Hualien area will find themselves among some truly magnificent scenes of nature.

With its towering peaks and verdant valleys, plus its sweeping ocean views and friendly locals, Hualien has understandably become one of Taiwan's must-see travel destinations for both domestic and international visitors alike.

For the fast train, hop on the Taroko Express and be sure to sit on the left-hand side of the carriage to ensure the best views of the coast along the way.
