Eight Arch Bridge: Hualien

After going to the Lintian forest, my dad drove us to the coast to see eight arch bridge and to eat seafood. The drive was pretty long (maybe two hours?) and the roads were a little scary to navigate because there were so many twists and turns (and I don’t remember a lot of safety guard rails while we were driving!) Luckily my dad is a good driver and we got to the eight arch bridge in one piece.


The bridge is to the right of the water and leads people to a small island that also has a lighthouse (sadly, I don’t have any photos of the bridge because they’re all on Ken’s phone!). But, some more photos of the scenery:



The area was not very well developed and there aren’t that many resorts there (although in the winter time, it’s very windy and we were wearing our winter coats while walking on the bridge). During the summertime, it’s well visited but tourists usually don’t sunbathe here (because Asian people don’t sunbathe and because there isn’t sand, it’s very rocky). It’s a beautiful area and fun to get there; during our long drive, we talked about my mom and dad as teenagers in Taiwan and about how all their friends from high school are now famous politicians!
