Hualian 七星潭 - Nothing much to see when I was there. Not much activity.
li yu tan - Very far from Hualian City
I suggest you take time to explore, eat and shop in Hualian City after touring Tarako cause by the time you come back you could be REAL SHAGGED so a more relax activities will make your short stay in HL more fun.
I booked Cabby-Guide Mr Looi Lai Fu during my stayt in HL. He is very knowledgable and is a safe driver. Had much fun in HL becoz of him too.

Hi ppl, for those going to Alisan, there's bad news. There's a landslide due to continuous rainfall for the past few days. It seems that part of the area is still assessible, however, our friend in Taiwan told us that the best scenery is now out of access. Maybe more ppl can confirm this.

This is the news from the alisan website in Chinese. So far the English one has not been updated

1) 1030 - 11pm shops will start closing. they open at about 11am. roadside stalls are abit random. some open very early and close very late.

2) WFP i left in the evening so not sure. but they start operating at about 4-5

3) Lovers bridge about 7 i think.

most of the bus driver will announce, there’s a direction sign to yehliu near the bus stop,walk down the flight of staircase (you will come to a small fishery port) and make your way there

1400 - Leave for Jiufen via Keelung, Buy train tix back to taipei, rem to ask wat is the last train timing. There is a train schedule on the big board.
