Taitung, well-known for its clean air and fabulous scenery, never fails to attract crowds of tourists. It is also the best getaway spot for people living in Taipei, where it has been raining constantly. Let’s find out what these incredibly breathtaking sites have to offer when you come to Taitung.
台東森林公園 ｜ Taitung Forest Park
Taitung Forest Park was originally a woodland protection forest where visitors barely drop by. Luckily, under the government’s excellent planning, the Park has become the first coastal forest park in Taiwan. Occupying nearly 300 hectares of land, the park has an ice skating rink, a water sports area, a bicycle path and a place for bird watching. The park’s artificial lake is also the venue of the annual dragon boat races, national triathlon and other major sports events.

都歷沙灘 ｜Torik Beach
The beach in Torik has a unique type of black sand beach that reflects the azure sky on a sunny day, astonishing people with the mirror effect. However, if you want to take a gorgeous photo resembling the “mirror of the sky”, make sure to take the advantage of the high and low tide times and capture the best time when the sea and the ground merge.

台東初鹿牧場 ｜Chu Lu Ranch
As the largest pasture in Taiwan, Chu Lu Ranch not only has endless green grasslands, but also boosts of many lovely cows strolling around the grasslands. The snow-white fences, blue sky and the occasional “moo” sound of the cows give you the impression of traveling in an European manor. Visitors can also feed the cows up close and taste various fresh dairy products, the most famous of which are the delicious milk buns.
