The majesty of Taroko Gorge
Situated at the rocky east coast of Taiwan near Hualien is Taiwan's major attraction, the Taroko Gorge. A fantastic 19-kilometer-long canyon, the gorge is a breathtaking spectacle of craggy rocks and cascading water. Taroko is famous for its spectacular granite mountains and marble canyons. Millions of years of wind erosion and shifting of continental plates created impressive grand canyons.
The waterfalls characterized Taroko National Park and the most famous ones are Pai Yang Waterfall, Yin Tai Waterfall, Chang Chun Waterfall, and Lu Shui Waterfall. Swallows nest on the cliff, chirping and flying back forth.
The best way to see Taroko Gorge will be to take a full-day trip by domestic flight from Taipei's Sung Shan Airport. A half hour flight on Far Eastern Transport will take you to Hualien where you will board a tour bus to take you to the gorge.

Chitaka is a restaurant franchise in Taipei, with at least eight different locations over the city. They supposedly serve good curry (I didn't try it), but I came for their fried pork cutlets. There are many different set meals and combos possible; the set meals generally come with too much Japanese seafood and miso soup (neither of which I am big fans of). The food here is somewhat overpriced, considering that you can get fried pork cutlets in other restaurants for as little as NT 50. Service is generally good. I didn't like most of the dishes here but I loved the deep-fried pork cutlets, which were one of the best I had in Taiwan (with the exception of a restaurant in Wufeng). They are fried just right and don't taste too greasy, its absolutely perfect. Prices for the pork cutlet start at a little over NT 200.
Also be sure to try the green tea ice cream.
