Taitung Photo Gallery

Taiwan Flag

Taitung is an off-the-beaten track destination tucked on the other side of the mountains and not accessible by the high-speed rail network. However, this is a good place to visit for nature lovers, who will find unspoiled countryside and sea views all along Taiwan's east coast.

Getting here is fairly easy though. Trains take only 2 hours from Kaohsiung, but seats are fairly limited so book online in advance. The main station is quite a distance out of town and you will likely need to rent a car from here to fully enjoy the east coast's scenery along Provincial Highway 11.
