Day 1 Traffic Updates
- Caoling Historic TrailThe Old Caoling Tunnel cuts across Sandiau Cape, starting at Yuanwang keng, just inland from Fulung, and ending at Dali on the coast. It is the only remaining section (rebuilt by the Tourism Bureau) of the old Qing dynasty trail that was constructed 130 years ago to provide the only land link down the Northeast Coast from Danshui to Yilan.
- Traffic Route Yuanwangkeng Water ParkThe Yuanwangkeng Water Park is located at the north gate of the Old Caoling Tunnel. Its spacious parking lot is conveniently designed to fit the need of the tourists. The Park is equipped with various facilities, such as: wooden ladders, a gazebo, a lotus pond and a water-splashing area for kids.
- Traffic Route Fulong Train StationFulong has always been one of the most popular attractions for all tourists visiting Northern Taiwan in summertime, and its bento and beach would be what Fulong is most famous for. Once stepping outside Fulong Train Station, visitors will see four to five bento shops, bike shops, and beach essentials shops all packed with customers. Cycling tourists who want to challenge the Old Caoling Tunnel can rent a bike and also get a bento here – be sure to hit the road after you are full. Before you set off, don’t forget to first put on your sunscreen and prepare plentiful supplies of water and snacks! Fulong Train Station is probably Taiwan Railways’ most “fragrant” train station. Once stepping out of the train station, visitors will immediately smell the aromatic bento. On the weekends, you can often see people each holding a bento in hand and enjoying it in big bites right over the steps of the Train Station’s entrance.
