    At first glance the impression is that this park just contains a few restaurants, however on closer inspection you will also find arts and craft shops, specialist shops for instance focusing on a Taiwan cartoon hero. When we visited an artist was displaying his work enough to fill the large hall, and he was support by what I presumed to be the local arts society. All in all very interesting and entertaining.

    Half-day heritage & art tour Discover evidence of Japanese culture alongside modern Taiwanese creativity in this tour of Hualien's unique eastern coast

What To Expect

During the Japanese occupation, the influx of Japanese immigrants was particularly great in the Hualien area, a period of history that is still very much in evidence today. This half-day tour takes you on a journey to discover these touches of Japanese style and architecture, which have created a beautiful fusion of heritage, unique to the east coast. Begin at Jian Chinxiu Temple, a traditional Japanese Takono-style temple built for the large number of Japanese in the area in 1917. Onwards to Liyu Lake where, on a clear day, the mirror-like reflections of Liyu mountain and the cotton clouds above make for spectacular photos. Get your final culture fix at the Hualien Creative and Cultural Park. Housed in a former Japanese winery, this collection of contemporary galleries, exhibition halls, boutique shops, teahouses and artist residences showcase cutting-edge Taiwanese art and creativity in a modern factory restoration.

    Former japanese winery, now a creative and culyural area. Buildings are interesting reflecting the japanese architecture. Has a range of craft shop selling high end items. Great gallery of contemporary art. Tea shop/cafe sells good range of teas, including fruit and herb teas, the herbs being freshly picked from their garden. Couple of hours well spent.

    原來行程名稱中英有誤,所以安排上行程上錯了,半天所一天遊,幸好我們沒有安排下午節目,意外到了東海岸國家風景區,原來是一個很值得去的地方。同時也謝謝專業司機講解和應變,讓我們有一個安心一天!
