After few days in Taipei, the capital city, I took a train to Hualein, a city on the east coast of Taiwan.
Located on a strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Central Mountain Range, Hualien is considered one of the most pleasant cities in Taiwan. I visited the city to enjoy the scenery, fresh air and also to visit the famous Taroko Gorge National Park.
Photos below are from the Hualein country.

Every evening the Hualien tourism organizes Aboriginal dance performances in Hualien Culture Park. There is no admission fee to watch this performance.
After few days exploring Hualien and Taroko Gorge National Park. I took a train back to Taipei.
