So, I was saying that I was lucky to experience a scenic journey along drive along the east coast of Taiwan.
We spent the first night at the 天祥基督教會招待所 a church located at Tianxiang 天祥, a small town near the Taroko Gorge.
The night was cosy and comfortable. No air conditioned available yet it was cooling and fresh. We went to sleep and woken up by the soothing energy of being so closed to nature.
It’s a pity that we did not have the luxury of time to explore this beautiful town.
If you are planning to hike or bike along Taroko Gorge, do check out Tianxiang.
Was lucky to have someone to drive us to explore the east coast of Taiwan.
It was a pleasant journey with spectacular view of the North Pacific Ocean.
First stop was at the Suhua Highway Monument (蘇花公路安魂碑) at Yilan.
Next stop at 原野牧場 at Hualien.
Sunrise at around 5.30am at 360∘海稻村 at Taitung.
We continued our journey down south passing some parts of Taitung before cutting across to Kaoshiung – Tainan and back to Taipei City.
