  • • Enjoy a quick and scenic train ride with assistance along the way

Taroko in a Day is specifically designed for visitors wanting to optimize their time at Taiwan’s must-see attractions. A convenient train ride assisted by MyTaiwanTour staff will take you from Taipei to Taiwan's most iconic, scenic spots featuring the largest marble canyon in the world. As you wind your way through the gorge's scenic road you'll learn the area's history, legends and more. After lunch, you'll spend the afternoon visiting Taroko Gorge, including Shakadang Trail, Swallow Grotto and Lushui Trail, three scenic areas offering different vantage points of the raging river below and majestic cliffs above. Finally, it is better to grab a light meal on the train before heading back to lively Taipei.

*Note: Our crew will hand train tickets at "Taipei Main Station Exit M3" (Add: No. 45, Sec. 1, Zhongxiao W. Rd) or send train tickets to passengers before the departure date. Please be informed to take the train by yourself, and the local tour guide will meet you at Hualien station.

Great tour!
We had an incredible tour of Taroko Gorge with the best tour guide Jason “Old J”. He went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect visit! Our guide picked us up promptly at the train and escorted us through the park all day, curating the tour to our interests. Highly recommend.
