Highway 11

Taiwan does not want for scenic drives and one of our favourites is the stretch of highway that runs from north to south down the coast between Hualien and Taitung City – Highway 11. Only around 170 km in total, there is so much to see along the way that the journey can easily take a whole day (or more if you want to explore the East Rift Valley and the other delights of Highway 9 that runs parallel to Highway 11, inland). The coastal scenery along Highway 11 is stunning and taking this route allows you to pass through small aboriginal fishing villages, see countless beaches and stop at other points of interest, including the famous arched bridge of Sansiantai, the town of Dulan, the rock formations at Hsiao Yehliu (‘little Yehliu’) and the Tropic of Cancer marker. Highway 11 is a great drive to do on your own as part of a self-drive tour or with a knowledgeable guide.
