Taiwan - 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.
