Reviews of Hualien

One of the most visited cities in Taiwan, for its close proximity to Taroko National Park. Sandwiched between the imposing mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Hualien feels more relaxed and expansive than the usually crowded Taiwanese cities. It has everything a traveler will need: from budget backpackers to high-end hotels; many restaurants, cafes, and street-side stalls; scooters and bicycle rentals.

Very fun small city with lots of outdoor adventures and city foods to enjoy. Outdoor adventure: The water tracing tour is a must for any tourist and I will remember how fun it was for my group for the rest of my life. Water rafting tour is also very fun, but in the winter (December) it is actually cold, windy, and the water level is low so there almost no rapids or current. There is also a tour of the national park here which has some amazing views. City fun: Shrimp fishing is something you have to check out. There is a fun arcade, a gambling arcade, and a nice movie theatre. The night market here is big, spacious, and really clean! The food isn't as good as Taipei night markets but still a lot of fun. Popular Foods here to try: Famous movie place near the train station. There is also a popular place here that serves something like a deep fried onion pancake with egg that is super popular here that is super bomb but a long line.

A very pleasant, relaxed city set up to accommodate tourists who come to visit nearby Taroko Gorge. The city has lots of well-priced accommodation, numerous eateries, a busy night market, and lots of scooter rentals. The city is situated between the ocean and the mountains and there are also a few nice beaches nearby.

A city I don't yet know as well as I would like. The surrounding areas from the beauty of the ocean shoreline to the scenic wonders of its mountains and rivers are amazing. It's the central district I still need to explore.
