The most spectacular drive I've ever taken... Brethtaking!

You def need a car to drive that highway along the cliff. They have 3 points to stop and take pics. Generally it's not allowed to stop on highway and pool on a side. If you don't... read more

If you don't have car, just go from Hualien to Chongde station by local commuter train, then exit station to main road and hitchhike. Pretty much... More

The most special and beautiful road in taiwan which the road is beneath the sea and the cliff. The route is quite dangerous due to fallen rocks. You can enjoy very beautiful and stunning view along the road.

I had been warned on many occasions of the perils of this Su-Hua highway, and I was prepared for the worst, but in the event this was a great road to drive. Admittedly I was driving it in good weather conditions, and it could be very different if it was raining, but a great (if busy) road with some wonderful... More

Spectacular views, stunning scenery with some great stretches - wouldn't recommend cycling the hilly parts not because of the hills but the traffic gets pretty hairy so choose your entry points and watch the scenery !

Great piece of engineering feat. Just imagine this highway was started in the 18th century where they did not have modern engineering and construction equipment, and spanned through 3 different governments - Chinese, Japanese and Taiwanese. Thrilling and precarious when you are in it, spectacular view of the ocean when you look out.

The whole stretch of the highway is 118km part of the highway is built alongside very steep cliffs high above the Pacific Ocean. The view along the highway is very beautiful and there are a couple of stops where you can stop and enjoy the beautiful view... More

This reminded me of driving down the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) in California. The views are absolutely beautiful. The day we were there was overcast, but had the weather been nicer, I would have stopped to do the hiking trail closer to the water.

Su-hua highway is mainly a 2-lane road, narrow and twisty in places, but nevertheless wide enough for truck traffic. Saw a heavy truck overturned on one of the curves. The highway affords beautiful views of the sheer cliffs and turquoise ocean, especially around Ching-shui cliffs.
