Floyd and I enjoyed a brief but fun vacation in the scenic coastal town of Taitung (pronounced “tai-DONG”) in southeast Taiwan.
Our hotel (which cost about $30 US per night) was pretty nice, with a unique “aboriginal” theme to it, especially out front. Taitung is home to one of Taiwan’s aboriginal tribes, so the local culture was a bit different than what we’re used to.
We walked across Sanxiantai, the eight-arched bridge in this picture, and spent a couple of enjoyable hours exploring the island on the other side. Highlights included hiking up to a lighthouse and through a cave.
