Wild Wild East – Taipei, Yilan to Hualien (4D/3N Trip)

Travel like the old traveller in this highly recommended Train Tour.  Get wild with this ultimate 4 days train tour to Yilan and Hualien offered by Taiwan Free and Easy Travel! Highlights include the Great Taroko Gorge, Seven Star Lake, Hualien east Rift Valley Scenic Area, Wufengchi Scenic Area and Taiwan’s only cold spring!

Enjoy a nostalgic train journey from Taipei to scenic Yilan. With the Pacific Ocean on the east and surrounded by stunning mountains, beautiful waterfalls, mystical lakes, hot-springs and rustic off shore islands, Yilan is undoubtedly popular. Visit Sanxing Farm and make your own “Sanxing Spring Onion Pancake”. Or sample authentic street food at Jiaoxi Food Street. Next visit Wufengchi Scenic Area and its beautiful cascading waterfalls. Built on a hill, Mr Brown’s Café is a great spot to sip a cuppa while enjoying beautiful Lanyang Plains.

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 it 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. Pop into ZiQiang Night Market for shopping, eating and people watching.

Peaceful Liyu Lake is the start of Hualien Eastern Rift Valley Tour. Drop by Ba Qi for an aerial view of the coast and 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.
