Taiwan Holiday: Hualien to Taitung – 2nd Day

Journey continues from Hualien to Taitung.

After our breakfast at 6am we headed to Taroko National Park.

Taroka National Park is one of the eight national parks in Taiwan and was named after the Taroka Gorge, the landmark gorge of the park. The park spans Taichung City, Nantou County and Hualien County.

The park was originally established as the Tsugitaka-Taroka National Park by the Governor-General of Taiwan on December 12th, 1937 when Taiwan was part of the Empire of Japan. After the Empire of Japan’s defeat in World War II, the Republic of China assumed control of Taiwan. The Republic of China government subsequently abolished the park on August 15th 1954. Then in November 28th, 1986 the park was reestablished.

After walking for 1 hour around the Taroko National Park we left and stopped at Rei Suei Leisure Farm. The farm with beautiful scenery, clear water, fresh air, and affluent grassland, suitable for development of stock breeding.

The cafe cum a souvenir shop served cakes and special brewed coffee using the milk freshly produced by the cows. Yummy milk nougats are being sold too.

A small petting zoo for us to visit at the farm.

Our next destination the Taitung Hot Spring Resort.

The scenic view along the journey.

By 6pm it is already dark in Taiwan.

Reached Taitong Hot Spring Resort around 9pm, had dinner at the resort. Did not join the rest at the Hot Spring as I didn’t really feel comfortable at all. So I adjourn to bed instead.
