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.

    The driving was excellent and took us around great locations for scenic attractions. The transportation was well air conditioned and the driver was very prompt in pick up time at our hotel.

    enjoyed a brief introduction of hualien given by the guide. I did not have enough time for a longer tour in hualien
  • Richard 22 Dec 2017
    A relaxing tour for an afternoon in Hualien but we were not culturally enriched after this tour. This tour is good for visiting a few places at a leisurely pace on a free afternoon. Best part of this tour is we were the only people on the tour and we had the whole car to ourselves. Good value overall.

    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.

    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.

    Is a relaxed and slow journey, attractions are a bit general, but the driver is really very good brother, but also make up for the lack of representativeness of the attractions, it is really easy to slow half-day tour, but also thank the driver big brother all the way guide, really Sticky

    This event caused me some disappointment, because of the participation of another local tour, and did not receive a tip notice.If the previous notice, I would like to better.But only me and peers, can not think of the car, they received a note told us And the last one to list the tip to be paid.When we feel surprised, and finally we have to pay, but not too happy experience. The driver is also very punctual arrival of us, but also willing to introduce, We feel unhappy.
