DAY 5

Day 1 / Taipei - Su'ao - Hualien

When heading down the magnificent east coast, we will stop at Yilan Su'ao and enjoy the rare type of cold springs, which is only found at a few places around the world, before arriving at Hualien. After lunch, visit a beautiful pebble-strewn beach with famously clear blue waters, take a walk around 48 Highland and cycle along the best coastal bike path.

Day 2 / Easten Coast Beauty: Hualien - Taitung

On day two we'll head south down the coast, making many stops along the way to check out the regions astonishingly varied coastal terrain. Further down the coast, we'll stop at Chenggong Fishing Port for fresh seafood lunch and visit local monkeys. In the afternoon, you will be able to experience well-known Hot Air Balloon Festival in Luye, or you could take an adventure of paragliding up to your option. After dinner, schedule a massage, soak in their hot springs, or simply enjoy the spa at hotel.

Day 3 / East Rift Valley Exploration: Taitung - Hualien

We'll spend the morning in a most unusual museum, one made not of brick and glass but of interconnected trees, part of a forest preserve maintained and protected by members of the local Bunun tribe. Follow local peoples to learn about the unique lifestyle and cultures of the indigenous tribe. Afterward, we'll explore the bucolic East Rift Valley when heading back to Hualien.

Day 4 / Hualien - Taroko

It is time for fun activities, we will spend the morning digging clams, an interesting and local experience to learn how to be a fish-man, and taste clam dishes. Afterward, we'll head inland to Liyu lake, whose beauty (some say) rivals that of Taiwan's well-known Sun Moon Lake. Ride on a paddle boat with your party or just cycle and hike around the lake to enjoy a lovely afternoon. The rest of the day will belong to Silks Place Taroko, enjoying spa, rooftop pool & other entertainment facilities at this world-class hotel.

Day 5 / Taroko Gorge -Taipei

On the final day we'll start slowly, allowing guests an hour or so after breakfast to continue to enjoy the facilities at the Taroko Silk before exploring Taroko Gorge, called Taiwan's Grand Canyon by some people. Visit a temple, shrine or waterfall, and even take a hike into the gorge itself. After gorging ourselves on scenery, we'll head back to the coast for the final leg of our Eastern Beauty Tour - a spectacular evening drive back up the eastern coast.

Japan / Michael W.
Exceptional Customized Travel Experience
From the moment we contacted MyTaiwanTour we were impressed. While they offered many terrific itineraries, we needed a #customized #tour. We had five days to visit Taiwan. Casper responded immediately with a plan that precisely matched our schedule, budget, and the specific interests we listed in our initial online inquiry. Anytime we had a question, Casper clarified things quickly and accurately. Booking and payment were easy, secure, and professional. Our guide, Gordon, took over from there and ensured that we had a fabulous trip. From the moment we met Gordon he demonstrated warmth and genuine concern that we enjoy our visit. His knowledge was vast and comprehensive. We enjoyed exploring and experiencing Taiwan with Gordon. Our trip to Taipei and eastern Taiwan was exceptional. We are experienced travelers, but could not have seen and done so much without Gordon and MyTaiwanTour.

MyTaiwanTour will take care of you and craft a wonderfully memorable experience.
My husband and I booked a 5-day Eest-coast luxury tour with MyTaiwanTour for our honeymoon. We didn't know ANYONE in the country and looked forward to having a Chinese- and English-speaking tour guide who could show us around. We were NOT disappointed.From the start, our email communications with MyTaiwanTour were frequent and efficient. Anka handled most of our booking and set-up and was friendly and fast to respond. We even got to meet her in Taipei on the first day of our tour and she was just as nice in person. Everyone was timely and we never had to wait around wondering what was going to happen -- the staff at MyTaiwanTour is organized and on top of it. They will handle everything!Michael, our tour guide, was amazing. He was so gracious, efficient, funny, kind, and supportive of our trip and our first-time experience. Michael was the perfect amount of hands-on and stand-back-and-let-you-enjoy. He had a great knowledge of the history of Taiwan, the aboriginal cultures, and most importantly, FOOD. He loved to eat and loved to show us good things to eat. We immediately realized that we loved having him as a dining companion, in addition to his role as a tour guide. Michael was also extremely flexible, asking us about our interests and rearranging the schedule to better suit what we might want to see (for example, he took us to the CHIMEI museum in Tainan, which was not on our itinerary). The coolest thing was that by the end of the tour, we felt like we had made a new friend in Michael and look forward to keeping in touch with him and the company. All-in-all, I have to say that even though we were a bit wary booking such an expensive tour online without having any knowledge of the staff or the company's reputation, we had an excellent experience. In fact, the thing that convinced us to book was the high ratings they receive on TripAdvisor -- one reason I am now writing to share my experience. All of our expectations were exceeded and we can't recommend MyTaiwanTour highly enough. If you're considering booking a tour of Taiwan, look no further! They will take care of you and craft a wonderfully memorable experience.
