But we also loved our time on Taiwan’s eastern coast, hiking in the beautful Taroko Gorge. And part of the fun of our time there was returning from a day on the trails to the luxury of the Silk Place Taroko Hotel.
From the rooftop, we could swim in the pool and soak in the hottubs, all with views over the gorges and the temples clinging to the rocky ledges.
In the evening, there were musical performances by many of the indigenous groups who continue to maintain their customs and traditions on Taiwan’s eastern coast.
And my kids also loved the daily cooking classes children could sign up for. My children don’t speak any Chinese, but they had an interpreter who helped explain the Taiwanese chef’s instructions.
And their chef-signed certificate all with traditional Chinese characters was quite impressive.
So when you are in Taiwan, be sure to go visit the beautiful Taroko Gorge region. Enjoy your days hiking, and your evenings relaxing at the Silk Palace hotel.
