East Coast Tourism Union

Some people say that Taiwan's Route 11 down the east coast provides some of the most beautiful coastline views on the island. Driving south, you can see the mountains to the west and the sea to the east. You'll also pass by the Shuangbin Mountains and cross the rapids at Xiuguluan. You can also experience the old town of Chenggong and take a slow tour along the Donghe River. Let the ocean be your guide as you travel further south, and discover the beauty of the east coast's mountains and seas.
