Asia - Taiwan - Port of Keelung - Day 2

Taiwan - Port of Keelung

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

It has several shipbuilding 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 of the gorge of the park.

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

There are many unusual landforms with abundant flows of water 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 indigenous ethnic tribe, about 150,000 with regular daily cultural shows.

This is an abandoned train located on the property.

An exciting day in Taiwan would have like to have spent more time exploring Taroko Gorge.
