Taitung Longitudinal Valley Tourism Union

The Taitung portion of the East Longitudinal Valley has unique climatic conditions, helping to produce fragrant and tasty rice. The lovely scenery of the rice fields has become a tonic for travelers seeking to relax their bodies and minds. The valley lies between the Central Mountain Range and Coastal Mountain Range. The sky, fields and the mountains combine to create beautiful scenes, as if from a landscape painting. The area's Tourism Union continues the five major themes of the Hualien Union, leading visitors slowly through this beautiful land.



  • Guanshan Old Railway Station - Station Master’s Dormitory
    Guanshan Old Railway Station - Station Master’s Dormitory
    No. 21, Bo'ai Rd., Guanshan Township, Taitung County

    The station master's dormitory lies to the northwest of the Guanshan Old Railway Station. It was completed in 1919 (the same year as the Taiwan Governor-General's Office in Taipei). The building is primarily constructed from cypress supported on a brick foundation. The walls were made from woven bamboo that was whitewashed. The exterior is clad with clapboards to prevent rainwater. The roof is a mansard style, with four sides sloping down from the peak. The bay window design on the north facade is rare for its time. This Japanese-style historic site now serves as an attractive rest stop for cyclists and others.

The school has a rice cultural relic museum, a DIY classroom, a rice engraving classroom, and an agricultural product exhibition and sales center. The school's old-fashioned big bowl of public rice is a must-try special meal.

  • Kaadaadaan
    No. 85, Zhongxing, Guanshan Township, Taitung County

    Residing at the foot of the Coastal Mountain Range's western side, the tribe (Kaadaadaan) are members of the Amis. About 150 years ago, they migrated north to this location from the Hengchun peninsula. About 100 years ago, Qing Dynasty soldiers invaded this area. The aboriginal peoples fought fiercely in resistance, and used bamboo cannons to scare off the Qing soldiers. In modern days, the sounds of bamboo cannons are used not only as a remembrance of tribal history, but also as a means of welcoming visitors and giving them a tribal blessing. The tribe's Baoma canteen uses locally-produced ingredients to cook foods that have a taste of happiness. Vegetables from the aunt next door and small tomatoes from grandma are fresh and clean. Scallion-cooked chicken is one of the special treats.
