Eastern Taiwan travel spots
  Hualien    Ilan    Taitung    
 
 
Travel > Taiwan East
Huoran Pavilion Trail
This is a short but torturous trail -- climbing 550 meters in just 1.9 km. What it lacks in length is more than made up for in rapid elevation. Although the trail head is located at the Huoran Pavilion, most people opt to make a return journey starting from the Tienhisang Youth Activity Center.
 
The Meiyuan-Jutsuen trail: Beware of falling rocks!
This trail is not for acrophobics or the faint of heart! Located on the hairpin curve of Huitouwan bus stop, approximately 6 km up from TienHisung lies the Meiyuan-Jutsuen Trail. This trail shares its first leg with the comparatively more popular Lienhuachih (Lotus Lake trail).
 
Lienhuachi: A trail of poetic, breathtaking scenes
For an inspiring one day hike that is breathtaking in all senses of the word -- there is no better place than Lienhuachi (Lotus Lake). The trail starts on the hairpin corner of Huitouwan, about 6 kilometers west of Tienhsiang -- sharing the first leg with the arduous Zhutsuen trail.
 
Make a cultural trip to aboriginal Harvest Festivals along the East Coast
Summer time is the most popular period for traveling along the east coast of the island. Along the 167-kilometer-long Tai No.11 Highway from Hualien to Taitung, you will be accompanied by the blue Pacific Ocean, beautiful sunshine and green mountains all the way.
 
The mysterious Shakadang trail
Located but one kilometer from Taroko National Park Headquarters is the majestic Shakadang trail. Previously known as Shen Mi Ku or Mysterious Valley, the trail underwent a name-change in February of 2001. The term Shakadang comes from the Sedik (Taroko Atayal) word for molar.
 
Jhao Yang National Trail provides a wide variety of views
The Jhao Yang National Trail mixes a subtropical forest, sea breezes, and monstrous seaside cliffs for one of the best coastal treks in Taiwan.
 
Japanese houses in Ilan
When Taiwan was ceded to the Japanese with the conclusion of the Sino-Japanese War in 1895, officials and administrators were sent from Japan to Taiwanese cities and counties to administer the populace. The Ilan homes were built in 1906 for the Ilan County magistrate.
 
Traveling back in time at the National Museum of Prehistory
The National Museum of Prehistory has a simple and accidental origin. Although still in its infancy as it just opened to the public in 2001, it is already making a ripple as Taiwan's first world-class museum of archaeology.
 
Taiwanese Opera Taiwan's only native theatrical art form
A gong beats. Instruments sore. The actors on a brightly lit stage sing. The opera begins. In this opera, however, there are no obese tenors belting out soaring Italian arias. The words, songs and the performance are all uniquely Taiwanese.
