The travellers' Heaven in Taiwan

Taitung is far from the big cities and it's quite big, the air is so fresh, so most people, as long as they have more than 3 days vacation, would choose Taitung or Hualian to have a break. The rape blossom is everywhere in Taitung during spring.

Green Island

A Pacific island to the southern-east of Taitung. The whole coastline is rounded by the coral reefs. Its area is 15.1 sq. km and it has a population of about 2,800.
Green Island is another small island that belongs to Taiwan. It's just 40 mins for taking a round by motorbike. It's much hotter, and very windy during October. peop go to Green Island by boat or small plane, I took a boat, but the wave is too strong to make everyone throw up when they have seats on the 2nd floor. The sailors closed the 2nd floor. In this picture John stands in front of a famous jail. decades of years ago, people were sent to this prison were disappeared mostly and their families hardly saw them again. Some political prisoners are sent here too, our president A-Bian and our vice president stayed in for years.

The Dog and The Sleep Beauty

Green island is a vulcanian island that creats a beautiful and diverse coast. The sea eats the rock away and forms a head, Sleep Beauty's head. The dog behind her takes care of her every day until they become rocks.
