After we toured Taitung's coast and rode the train through the beautiful Huatung valley, we arrived in Hualien City at 4pm, which means we had the pleasure to experience the city's beautiful ambiance at dawn. Hualien is a truly amazing city. While the mountains at its back are covered with grim dark grey clouds, the ocean at its front is enjoying a beautiful symphony of the blue sky and white clouds. This was the time when we went out to find our hostel and later rushed off to see the Pacific and visit one of the most famous night markets in the region.
Let me share our photos with you:
It's a pity, that we had to rush out and see so many placed. If I'd stayed on that small balcony with a glass of wine and smell the Pacific ocean breeze, it could've been an equally awesome experience. But life in Taiwan is fast-paced and we had no choice but to go out there and explore this Eastern gem. It was definitely worth it.
I took some of the best photos of my East Taiwan trip! It's really a must see spot, especially if you're here at dawn. The sunset or the sunrise must be beautiful, too, but what we saw was one of the most beautiful grey colors nature could display.
