Our boutique homestay features only two guest rooms. Decorated by hundreds of beautifully crafted art pieces and plants hand picked from our adventures all across the beautiful island of Taiwan, you can be assured of a refreshing and unique experience while staying with us. And the best of all, enjoy a 180 degrees of panoramic sea view right outside of your window!!! 5 minutes of biking or a short 20 minutes walk will take you to the city center, where you'll find the best that Hualien has to offer.
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. Many tourists visit the city to enjoy the scenery and fresh air and also to tour the famous Taroko Gorge, which is located a few miles north of the city.
Chi-Hsing Tan (七星潭)
Excellent vistas of the ocean, delicious and cheap seafood, friendly people, and a special goat restaurant specializing in goat milk coffee. Great place for leisure cycling and walking. The beach is not popular for swimming, though, as the tides and currents are quite dangerous, the bottom drops off steeply, and doesn't have much sand (mostly pebbles).
Hualien Ocean Park
Hualien's biggest man-made tourist attraction. As well as ferris wheel and cable car, the park contains eight zones that introduce different aspects of ocean and marine life. Kids, in particular, will have great time here but for adventurous travelers or people wanting a more viable experience, there are many places one can go that are much cheaper and provide a better experience of the 'real' Country of Taiwan.
