Surrounded by mountains and the Pacific Ocean to its east, the Lanyang Plain has been blessed with fertile soil and abundant fishery.
With this unique environment, the natural products harvested from the mountain and sea have enriched the daily life of the Yilan people.
This time, let’s visit the Dongshan area of Yilan and experience the joy of nature’s gift.
冬山良食農創園區 | Dongshan Township’s Farmers’ Association-Agriculture and Creative Park
The Dongshan Township Farmers’ Association renovated the old barn in front of the Dongshan Railway Station into the first agricultural-themed cultural and creative park in Taiwan.
First, the “Buy Bar” is open for selling various kinds of local friendly small farmers’ souvenirs, and there is also a boutique tea bar, “Tea Brown”, which promotes the sweet taste of Dongshan Royal Jasmine black tea to visitors through hand-brewing.
The “Play Bar”, a DIY kitchen in the park, allows you to make environmentally friendly and healthy dishes with your own hands while enjoying the fun of participating in the production process before its debut on the dining table.
In the future, there will be a “learning bar” that combines food and farming education along with an “eating bar” that presents Dongshan’s famous dishes so that visitors can fully appreciate the beauty of Dongshan’s local products.

冬山火車站彩色屋 | Dongshan Train Station’s “Rainbow Houses”
After discussions with residents living in front of the Dongshan Station, the exterior of the houses was painted in cute bright, and lively colors to match the environmentally-friendly transit project that integrates the railroad, river, and old-town tourism in Dongshan Township.
Visitors can now see an entire row of “rainbow-colored” houses as soon as they step out of the train station, and the scenery is fascinating when combined with the blue sky and green fields.
It looks just like a “land-based version of the Zhengbin Fishing Harbor” that is sure to lift your spirits.
After the renovation of the plaza in front of the station, the giant cuckoo bird stationmaster and herringbone installation art that greet visitors has also become very popular, #Instaworthy spots.

冬山河生態綠舟 | Dongshan River Ecoark
The park’s rich scenery allows you to enjoy the exciting installation art on the great lawn or catch the moment a passing train speed by the “Hill of Hope.”
When the weather is good, you can also see Guishan Island from a distance. You can also swing by the “Yi-jan Settlement” and visit the environmentally-friendly farm.
The mysterious waterway, which has become quite popular recently, is like a cave carved by nature. The light and shadow reflecting the water surface intertwine to create different visual effects.
In the daytime, the light from the cave entrance gives off a fairy-like feeling, and in the evening, the lighting seems straight out of a movie scene.
