Signature Hualien Explorer – Taipei to Hualien (3D/2N Trip)

Embark on an unforgettable train tour to Hualien with Taiwan Free and Easy Travel! Itinerary includes the Great Taroko Gorge, Seven Star Lake and Hualien east Rift Valley Scenic Area.

The train journey into Hualien is one of the most enjoyable. It offers non-ending sweeping ocean blue vistas, mountains and lush green paddy fields. We don’t believe there’s another place quite like Taroko Gorge. The drive through Taroko National Park with its gorgeous peaks, scenic canyons, cascading waters and numerous walking trails, is simply divine. Be prepared to walk about to enjoy its beauty up close. Equally breath-taking is Seven Star Lake, a marbled pebble beach. It’s also a great photography spot. Cycle, stroll or just watch the sun goes down. Enjoy a delicious local dinner at ZiQiang Night Market serving heaps of authentic local specialties.

Peaceful Liyu Lake is the start of Hualien Eastern Rift Valley Tour. Drop by Ba Qi for an aerial view of the coast with its off shore islands. Shitiping is like mini Yehliu with its unique rock formations and dramatic views of the ocean. Attractions to cover include Yue Dong, a natural cave and Tropics of Cancer Landmark, a huge picturesque park with a towering marker. At noon during summer every year, when the sun shines on the marker which is built with special slits, the experience of “no shadow” happens.

More adventure awaits you in the different travel options in our Half Day Tours, Day Tours and Minsu Experience Tours at Taiwan Free and Easy Travel.
