Taitung County, known as “the most beautiful backyard of Taiwan”, never fails to attract tourists with its breathtaking and spectacular sceneries.
If Mr. Brown Avenue is still the first thing that springs to your mind when we speak of Taitung, you are surely out of date! Let’s take a look at the secret spots that you need to put on your must-visit bucket list, shall we?
比西里岸部落 ｜ Pisirian
“Pisirian” means “the place for sheep farming” in the language of Amis. This was the place where the Amis raised sheep in the past, yet as time went by, the sheep-raising practice became less and less popular.
The local community collaborates with the residents and artists to preserve the unique culture of this area by adorning the neighborhood with installation arts and murals.
The most representative art, of course, is the adorable huge sheep made from driftwoods.

加路蘭海岸 ｜Jialulan Park
One of the must-see attractions for visitors in Taitung is Jialulan Coast.
It not only boasts of a stunning view of the Pacific but also has a series of driftwood installations that are just as beautiful as a postcard!
It is also very suitable to visit Jialulan at night, as the coast is free from any light pollution so visitors can see the vast starry sky.

台東小野柳 ｜XiaoYeLiu Geopark, Taitung
Located in the northern area of Fugang Fishing Port (富岡漁港), XiaoYeLiu Geopark is the southernmost scenic spot on the eastern coast. The name, “XiaoYeLiu”, originates from the similarity of topography and rocks to the YeLiu Geopark in New Taipei City.
From May to October, the Geopark offers the “Night Visit” event for those who are interested in nighttime ecology. Among all the creatures, hermit crabs are the main attraction of the event.
