Just after some quick ideas. I’m planning to do the East Coast this weekend with a friend (last minute planned trip :aiyo: ). However, as the title implies, we are don’t have valid licenses for car/motorbike/scooter travel in Taiwan, and we aren’t too keen on riding between towns/cities (especially with the forecasted rain).
Besides Taroko (obviously), could anyone suggest possible locations that are accessible by train from Hualien or Taidong that can be done as day trips? Or anywhere rurally where we could base ourselves for the weekend with places reasonably nearby to go see/do (hikes, beaches etc). We don’t mind getting to a place & hiring a cycle (or taking one with us on the train from Hualien/Taidong).
Totally understand that this isn’t the optimal way to really experience the East Coast, but it’s all we have for now.
EDIT:: Done a little reading online & considering to base ourselves somewhere like Yuli for the time we’re there. I understand the Walami Trail is nearby. Are the any other possible places to go from there? Is it possible to ride along County Rd 193 to Rueisui for example (back in one day)?
