Our scrapbook notes about Hualien

A town worth visiting for the nearby Taroko Gorge and National Park. As the gorge only tends to have expensive accommodation it is then worth staying in Hualien which is easy to get to from Taipei by train. The city does not have too much to offer for the busy tourist, but there are plenty of restaurants to try the local food, however don’t expect many bars. A local favourite food is pineapple cake and also flavoured cake sweets such as sweet potato and green tea.
