What We Love About Taitung

There's no better way to explore the city of Taitung than on two wheels! Cycle along Taiwan's oldest bikeway – the Guanshan Bicycle Trail and pass by rows of betel nut palms, rice paddies, and lush plantation fields. Visit the unspoiled grounds of Taitung's East Rift Valley and go rafting along the Xiuguluan River! Shop at the Taitung Tourism Night Market and experience the Taiwanese lifestyle by indulging in local street food! Delight in Hunan Crispy Pockets or Gua Bao - a white steamed bun filled with grilled pork, pickled vegetable and peanut powder.
