I have stayed in Hualien just 3 days. I should stay longer I mean it. I had so much fun there, more than I expected. Let me record what I have enjoyed, here we go.
It was heavy rain when I was going to take a train to Hualien from Taipei. I have very concerned, because no one likes to travel nowhere but payied. Luckily, the rain stoped after I arrived. I met my European and Asia friends at night market and shared many delicious food together.
The first day morning, the weather seems good. My friends and I participated 2 day tour to Golden Waterfall. My Asia friend said that is top 1 of must do in Hualien. The outdoor company showed many equipments that we have never seen. It's very convinent that we don't have to prepare so many things but get a lot of protection. The most suprising me was the scenery of canyon is incredible beautiful. We started from simple to advanced. We went swimming and diving in super clear deep pools, and then did river tracing against flows to go upper of river. At night, we had wild camping beside the river in the canyon. Dinner was super delicious BBQ with local growth foods.
