One of the highlight of my trip. We reached there close to 6pm. With the sun ray being more subdued at that timing, the whole area looked exceptionally beautiful and serene. On the one side is mountains with sea of clouds. On the other is...More

The eight arch bridge is so different to what you might expect. You climb up to the first arch and then walk up and down steps to cross each arch. When you get to the island, it is thick with Pandanus trees and there is...More

If you can please visit this place. Nice to walk the bridge to the other side of the island. Even better when the weather is nice. Great views of the east coast of Taiwan.

You can buy it on the bus itself or at the Taitung main bus station. You can get on and off any of those sites with the one day pass but buses are limited to 4 each way in a day so choose wisely your timing and attractions.
