Hi, any recommend where to go in Hualien ?

i also will be staying in roseland ..
anything interesting nearby there ?

did u take any tour package from the minsu
Taroko Gorge is must-visit when you are in Hualien. No, did not get the tour package but hire a cab up to Taroko. Tour package cost around NT990pax and the cab is NT2200, so actually does not make a big different for us (2person). It will be better if there's 4 person to share the cab. Can ask the help from the Roseland to hire the cab for you.

This hotel is very famous in Hualian:

http://www.king13.com.tw/main.php

That time i went, all the ppl i asked for directions from gave me reponses like 'oh 国王陛下 ah..' Very nice room at very affordable prices too. They have several packages which you can choose from.

Foods to try in Hualian:

花蓮市週邊美食-公正街包子 花蓮市中山路199之2號
自强夜市 - 第一家烧烤肉串 ---> This is the best bbq I've eaten in my entire life. Their sauce is indescribable.
is this hotel convenient? any attractions near it ? what can i do for a 1 day trip in hua lian ?

Going by cab to Taroko normally last 7-8hours (two-way), food not provided. Cab driver will bring you to buy pack meal or bring you to a small restaurant in Taroko. Normally the cab driver act as tour guide as well, he will drop you at certain stop, make some brief explanation and let you walk on your own as he needs to look after his cab.

you see, i still planning my nov taiwan trip and yet to book and my wife is chasing me to book fast.

my first day reaching taipei with travelling to hualian, i belive by time i reached the minsu, it will be a day gone. so i go for the taroko tour on the second day, i think it should be enough to cover taroko and some other place?. for the 3rd day, what can recommend? the seaworld? worth going? also in hualian, if there any spring bath that 6 year old kid can go too one?

my planning now is once reach taipei, will go to hualian, stay there for 3 night. before i go back to taipei, really want to try the bullet train. so any other places i could go where there is place of interest and the bullet train station is( where i can make way back to taipei via the bullet train).

I am travelling with my wife and 6 yo kid,. thanks

is it easy to travel from hualian to green island? i went to the web of green island. look like all water sport and seaworld which hualian also have one. that why i decide to give green island a miss. also for kaoxiong, thers is bullet train? ( i surf the web of the train , never see Kaoxiong station le, maybe i miss it, correct me if i am wrong).
for my second part of the tour will be from hualian to places where (perfer there is bullet train station where i can take back to taipie one) any good recommendation? actually wanted to go to the lavender forest,but in nov it is not a good season for lavender farm?
also as you stated, it advisable to book the flight ticket first den, plan the tour and hotel booking and trian booking after? thanks

green island is a goot place for relaxing n a goot outdoor geograhpy lesson for ur kid.Next the seabed hot spring is oso a rare hot spring in the world, hualien only tarako gorge 7 star lake n clear water cliff is a must tour place,the rest can gif a miss
if u enaged a cabbie for hualien tour,the cabbie sure bring u to these places n can finish within 1 day
kaoshiung bullet train station is intgrated as 1 of the 3, 3 in 1 stations under zuoying station
as east side dun haf bullet train,either u go downwards to taitung n cross over to kaoshiung or haf to go back tpe
early bking of ticket,will help u better in planning,as u know wat time is ur flight,so u know how much time to allocated for ur 1st day n last day
after den,u plan up where to go on wic day liao,den ur hotel will not b a waste
if not,if u last min change itineray,ur hotel will go wasted....
as for the rest,u can bk couple of days b4 flying off or can even pruchase the tic on the day itself such as train/MRT ticket
