  • As soon as we walked into the forest, the wood's scent piled up into the mountains, and it looked more magnificent. If there are children who are comfortable here, adults can also watch the rest of the drinks in the area.

  • Park-East Forestry and timber shipment history. Forward North Rd. fair road Luo East station of the Taiwan Railway, extending from the front of the West exit to the West about 5 minutes walk, and Chiang Kai-Shek Road, extending from there to the North. Station Forestry Culture Park until 10 minutes worth was. To express the timber shipment landscape, as well as various styles of wooden buildings and into the forestry train was located on the waterfront.

  • A former timber production/transportation hub now preserved as a park. You can spend a peaceful evening strolling along the boardwalk, breathing in fresh air, and observing the birds. Circling the park didn't take more than 45 mins, but you might spend a longer time if you stop by the small shops, bookstore, and learning spaces (if there's stuff going on). I liked that there were plaques along the boardwalk explaining the forestry history of this place
  • When I was there, many locals were using the boardwalk around the wetland. I saw only one shop open in the art and culture area. It may be a work in progress and probably busier on weekends. The old leftover twisted logs leave you with the impression of how large these trees were. I saw people using the large tree carvings and the old train engines as photography backdrops. In all a nice place to visit but probably appeals more to locals than to tourists.
  • Beautiful scenery around the lake. Worth a walk around the lake to admire the mixture of the water, the birds, Japanese style of wooden houses, and the blue sky reflected on the water surface.
  • Interesting outdoors place good for family with kids to spend time together. Plenty of forest knowledge to learn here, for children and parents. Usually crowded in weekends.
  • Very good place for taking a walk! Many old japanese houses and railways from the time when there's a forestry industry there. Also good for birdwatching.

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.
