HELLO! On this post i want to share my experience for taking train from Hualien area to Taipei. Well actually HUALIEN IS BIG, people only know Hualien station in Hualien city but actually in Hualien area, has 1 more station nearer to Taroko gorge, XINCHENG STATION. I used this station back to Taipei, since i was staying at Taroko area so it closer to be reached than i went back to Hualien. It can be your choice if you want to back to Taipei right after you done the hiking.
HUALIEN TO TAROKO DISTANCE 23KM (+/- 30 MINS)
XINCHENG TO TAROKO DISTANCE 4.7KM (+/- 5 MINS)
