[taiwan 2013] day 4-6: cloudy in hualien

We got a driver for the past few days to go around and we’d stop at pretty places, but it’s been quite cloudy and foggy so still amazing scenery but some parts not as nice for taking photos :(

on the train from taipei to 新城
v cool waves along 清水斷崖
love the colour of the sea!!!
not sure what the bridge is called but this photo was taken from the start of the shakadang (砂卡噹) trail
the trail basically follows a stream with really clear and nice water
view from our hotel in hualien
some famous bao shop!!
dessert :D
on day 5 we did a tour down the east rift valley. this is from some old japanese place I forgot what it’s called haha
we spent 1h going around liyu lake (鯉魚潭) in this super slow peddle boat
old railroads!
石头火锅 for lunch- my first time voluntarily eating so much fish and veggies but it was yummy!
ice cream at the guangfu sugar factory :D I’ve actually been eating icecream a lot hehe icecream in winter is v nice!
went to 瑞穗 but we didn’t really go around much, just saw some ostriches and cows and ate more icecream hahaha
雲山水, a super pretty place (my photos don't do it justice) though it's all man-made

the man-made lake is huge! and has ducks heh (on the far right is a hotel)
stacking rocks at 七星潭 x) it isn’t actually a lake, the water in the background is the pacific ocean!
east entrance to taroko national park
taroko gorge! we had to wear helmets while walking there in case rocks fall
the river water wasn’t that pretty but still nice!
天祥寺 which was too high so we decided not to climb up haha
red maple leaves!!!
leader village, it's like a resort run by people from the tribe there and the place is super nice
