Continuing with our series on the East Coast of Taiwan – I must apologize for the interval between these posts, but I’ve had issues. Nevertheless, here is the last segment, and then we will show you some more amazing places such as Bali!
Virtually every visitor to Taiwan’s East Coast has a photo like this!
A little further up the coast, and we come to this point – also famous.
Eventually, we made our way to the lovely coastal town of Suao.
But we didn’t stop yet. We had a particular destination in mind.
Phoenix really liked this crayon factory!
Along the way, we saw Turtle Island – which really does look like a turtle in the water!
Finally, we arrived at the Evergreen Resort in Jiaosi.
This is a hot springs resort, which are my favorite type! This is the hot springs tub in our room!
I’ll show you a few other things about our room.
In the evening we went out to a local night market, under a bridge.
This is a shot of the outdoor swimming pool at the resort.
It is literally 3 floors up! At the far right we see the kiddie pool. That was a lot of fun for Phoenix because they filled it up with floating toys.
A shot out of our room. We stayed 2 nights and it was very reasonable.
Time to leave the resort and get back on the road!
On the way back home we stopped by Toucheng Old Street.
This map shows the layout.
This is the name of the street.
As these so-called “old streets” in Taiwan go, this one had some very interesting and genuinely old buildings to look at. They are mostly occupied as businesses or residences.
I like this: it’s a list of the major buildings of note. Makes a lot of sense, and I wish all the old streets in Taiwan would do this.
There was a stage in the middle of this little lake, and it was setup for a concert. We didn’t stay to attend the concert though.
This is some kind of residence and to my eye it looks a bit Japanese style.
The same residence, shot through a hole in the fence.
This sculpture is pretty clever.
This is a cute little panorama showing the major buildings in the area.
There are a few abandoned places that I poked my head into. This is like going back in time!
Looking down, I noticed these fish, embossed into the roadwork. Nice!
We went 604km in total, on our East Taiwan trip!
