When touring Hualien and Taitung, it is best to adjust your mood, slow down your pace, and take the train stop by stop, town by town to explore the area. This way of slow traveling is the only way to do justice to the hospitality, history and beautiful scenery that each area has to offer.
When the passengers get off the train and stand on the platform, they can first see many elements with local characteristics. Exiting the Station, they are greeted by the earthy fragrance and simple human touches of Hua-tung.
From north to south, we selected eight towns: Ji'an, Shoufeng, Fenglin, Wanrong, Guangfu, Yuli, Guanshan and Luye. Starting from the train Station, let us travel slowly through the warm towns of Hualien and Taitung.
