What We Love About Yilan

Just right beside Taipei lies Yilan, a wonderful nature spot right outside the city. In just a short 30-minute train ride from the capital, be ready to explore a treasure trove of hot springs and natural wonders! Relax and take a dip the hot springs around the Jiaoxi area or go on a hike at Tang-Wei-Gou park before rewarding your tired feet at a public hot spring. Head to The Jimmy Square at Yilan City, a top attraction, filled with beautiful illustrations and statues of characters drawn by famous Taiwanese illustrator, Jimmy Liao. Take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy the greeneries around Luodong Forestry Culture Park, an area that played a crucial role in the timber industry.
