The Hualien-Taitung area can be termed the back yard of Taiwan, with the Taroko and Yushan national parks, the East Coast and East Rift Valley national scenic areas, and three forest recreation areas (Jinan (Chinan), Fuyuan, and Zhiben). With such an abundance of tourist resources, this is the ideal choice for your vacation. Whether you like the excitement of white-water rafting, the fascination of whale- and dolphin-watching, the healthful exercise of walking forest trails, the relaxation of soaking in soothing hot mineral baths, or the intellectual stimulation of culture tours, this is the place for you.
Taroko National Park: This park is best known for its awesome marble-walled gorge as well as its majestic mountain scenery, Eternal Spring Shrine, Swallows' Grottos, Tunnel of Nine Turns（Jiuqudong), and other incomparable sights. The park's spectacular geologic features also encompass such spectacles as the Baiyang Waterfall just above the gorge, and the precipitous Quingshui Cliffs just below it.
East Coast National Scenic Area: Richly varied topography, with stepped seaside platforms, sand and pebble beaches, coral shores, offshore islands, capes, and sea-eroded platforms, channels, and caves. The coast is also the main home of the Amis tribe people, and the harvest festivals that their villages hold one after another in July and August provide visitors with an outstanding opportunity to enjoy a personal experience of indigenous culture.
