From the corner of Xinyi and Xinsheng to downtown Hualien. How long does it take? Go!
Depends on the traffic and weather. And how many stops you make to enjoy the scenery.
(I think it tooks us 4 hours or so, it was heavily raining in Ilan and we got stuck in a jam for quite a while.)
We’re leaving at 3pm this Saturday. I would love it if we could be there no later than 7pm, but as you say, weather and traffic will be an issue. We’ll have to save the sight seeing for the next day on the drive back up. Thanks!
