Stayed 2 nights at Rihang's minsu. A bit of delay to start our journey from Taipei to Xincheng/Hualien. But Rihang was kind enough to buy us lunch at Yilan! The minsu is well kept, the rooms are spacious, the yard is huge. We 4 guys decided to bunk into 1 room, to help Rihang to save the housekeeping work for the other room. Rihang chauffeured us around and tried very hard to make sure we enjoy the stay and activities in Taroko and Hualien. He was very nice to allow us to use his bicycles and showed us the way from his minsu to the seaside. His minsu is a bit off the main road, there is a 7-11 convenient store within a 2-3min drive which Rihang would happily stop by before we go back to his minsu. The Taroko National Park is just 5-6min drive from his minsu...thanks Rihang!!! :-)
Just one comment, our group was 8 persons, the minivan that we travelled in was a small one, it would have been challenging if we were to travel far into Qingjing area with those winding roads! ^^"
