- 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.

Run to the east with friends
Have a crazy summer with a two-day trip to the beach of New Taipei! On the first day, head to Fulong for the vast sea. Fulong Inland River is wide and calm, making it an excellent place for beginners to try windsurfing. Around noon, you must have the renowned Fulong Bento (lunchbox). After taming your hunger, rent a bicycle with your friends and conquer Sandiaojiao Lighthouse on the east and enjoy the beautiful sunset!
On the second day you must be at full throttle. Have a relay race against the train to improve your teamwork. Runners can fully enjoy the beautiful scenery along Route 2 Taiwan. In the afternoon, head down to Shuangxi Old Street for delicious food to replenish your energy. End the trip with a nice cup of aromatic coffee.
