Nanfangao Fishing Port, Yilan County

3.9
Lined with shipyards, warehouses, and fishing boats, Nanfangao Fishing Port sits against the backdrop of verdant hills. Attracting crowds during the Mackerel festival (September to February), the town represents a seafood lover's paradise all year-round. Visit a fish market to experience the "real" Taiwan--where you can choose from the fresh seafood and haggle with fishmongers, then get the fish prepared to your taste in the restaurant at the market. You can also buy dried seafood to take back home. Don't miss the striking temple devoted to the sea goddess. If you explore the area further, be careful, as most beaches around town have dangerous currents and swimming is not allowed.

Where to stay in Yilan County

The city center next to the main train station has a number of long-established hotels, with some particularly luxurious options including spas naturally heated from local hot springs. Some budget-friendly options, such as guesthouses and hostels, sit in this densely populated and very developed area, usually along side streets. Look to the south across the river for a good mix of different accommodations in the county townships, and to the hot springs park north of the main city center, where hotels--both luxurious and basic--boast onsite spas using the geothermal waters.
