Yilan Photo Gallery

Taiwan Flag

Yilan is located on the northeast coast of Taiwan. It is only a 50-minute bus ride from Taipei thanks to the 13 km Hsuehshan Tunnel. Not congested and clustered with skyscrapers, the atmosphere is laid-back and the ocean awaits.

A traditional paper-based schedule welcomes passengers to Yilan's main train station.

The eastern coastline is beautiful and fairly untouched as much of the urbanized area lies along the west coast. Here in Dongao, it is possible to get very close to the ocean and try out the waters!

It is about a 20 minute walk from the train station to the waterfront. A town lies in the distance.

Welcome to the Pacific Ocean.

Like much of Taiwan's cities, mopeds rule.
