Zhuilu Old Trail Hiking Experience in Taroko National Park
For this activity, you can pick up and drop off from hotels in Hualien city and then return to hotels in Hualien city. It is really convenient for tourists without transportation. You can also provide replenishment in supermarkets before departure, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to prepare water and food. The scenery along the Zhuilu Ancient Road is very magnificent, plus the excellent weather on the day of the event, no matter how you take pictures. The guide and the leader of the car provide historical introduction along the way, always pay attention to the status of the team members, and provide rice balls to supplement energy when they arrive at the turning point. Although the other team members participating together do not know each other, they are kind and energetic. They can meet friends and make the journey. There are more memories, it is really recommended.

Hualien Whale Watching
The narrator is very serious about it, whether it’s pre-departure education or on the boat. This is the first time to take a whale watching boat. I thought I would not be seasick, but under the attack of the Kuroshio tide, I still vomited 🤣 🤣Although taking the boat is uncomfortable, I still recommend everyone to come to Hualien for whale watching! I really saw a lot of dolphins 🐬~~

Golden Clam Picking Experience in Hualien
This time I played in Hualien. I accidentally watched the Lichuan Touching Clam Experience Roll on Klook. It felt very good. I placed an order and bought it right away, and it was immediately available. You can enter the venue by scanning the QR code on the spot. You can take a full box back, it's really good value for money

Hualien Taroko National Park Private Car Charter
Tomb-sweeping Festival is off, obviously driving two cars to Hualien, but you must charter a car. Do you know what it is for? Because we are going to meet Hualien’s most dedicated driver, Huang Wenyi, because we are worried about traffic jams, get up at 4:30 in the morning, go out at 5 am, and go from Taipei to Hualien less than 8 am, Su Hua’s reform is really great 👍, and The chartered Big Brother Huang meets and heads to Taroko. The two families don’t need to drive by themselves, have a guided tour, and don’t need to find a parking space. It feels like going abroad for a vacation. Super invincible recommend chartering Taroko! Humorous and funny Brother Huang, knowing our needs, took us to Hualien's shortest stream-WC at the first stop, breaking the ice instantly, and the whole car laughing. I didn't make an appointment to ~ Shanyue Suspension Bridge, a new attraction that opened in August last year. Brother Huang also has a way to feast our eyes. ~ Baiyang Waterfall (the leaky cave 😂😂) 4.2 kilometers back and forth, about more than two hours walk, it is worth a visit! Jiuqudong, Qingshui Cliff, every place is very good to take pictures The beautiful photos were taken very funny 😂😂😂 A new experience of riding an ATV, the children also had a great time 😁😁😁 Visiting Dongdaemun Night Market at night~Today, the amount of exercise is very large, and it will break through 20,000 steps. It really depends on everyone to work hard. Sightseeing in Huadong allows young students to stay in their hometowns and no longer have to drift north.

Taroko Gorge Day Trips
The leader carefully introduced and understood a lot of Hualien's history. There is a certain distance and there are restrictions on the passage time. The leader's time will be counted. It just happens to not allow passengers to wait for the trip in the sky. The stay time is very smooth and the time is caught. It just happens that the leader will tell where the attraction is. A must-see if you come by yourself, you may not know what the focus is, so I highly recommend it! (Lunch is Tianxiang’s buffet, the nature of the food is already very good, I would recommend a meal-included itinerary, otherwise it will be very difficult to find food nearby)
