About Taitung: Because temperatures are hot all throughout the year, Taitung is also called the “homeland of the sun” and is full of sightseeing opportunities. Taitung's coastline is quite long, and at Sanxiantai you can see the Eight-Arch bridge that crosses the ocean and appreciate the geological formations at Xiaoyeliu caused by erosion. In recent years, there has also been an influx of eco-tourism activities like whale and dolphin watching. If you have enough time, you can take an excursion to Green Island so you get the chance to ride around the road encircling the island, go snorkeling, soak in the many hot springs and experience other aspects of life on a tropical island. Aside from that, this area also has a rich native culture and is a treasure trove of Taiwan's history and culture.
