Check out the beautiful scenery out there. It is on the northeast part of Taiwan and it is less crowded and lay back than the big cities. Hope you like it.

Had lots of fun spotting dolphins, saw at least 40; and the island is also really interesting. English signs everywhere, so you don't miss too much of the Chinese tour.we could actually just walk by ourselves and return when the boat left.
