Port of Keelung, Taiwan - Day 2 - March 2015

The city is Taiwan’s second largest seaport (after Kaohsiung) is the Port of Keelung.

It has several ship-building yards and busy fertilizer and cement industries. The Japanese used the Port of Keelung primarily to export raw materials to Japan.

Today, the Port of Keelung is Taipei's major importing center, and it has become an important international port.

Taroko National Park is one of the nine national parks in Taiwan and was named after the Taroko Gorge, the landmark gorge of the park.

Would definitely recommend getting a taxi for the full day to tour around the area.

There are many interesting landforms with abundant flows of water both at the bottom of the gorge, or above in the form of waterfalls.

Ami Cultural Village
Just south of Hualien, the Ami Cultural Village celebrates the culture and traditions of the local Ami aboriginal tribe – the largest aboriginal ethnic tribe, about 150,000 with regular daily cultural shows.

This is an abandon train located on the property.
