Hunting for great coffee shops is one of the most interesting and rewarding things that you can do in this area.

Yilan Harbour is known for having numerous seafood outlets and most prepare the dishes live, in front of your eyes – a fact that adds a certain appeal. The fish is chosen from the local harbour markets, making the end product the freshest it can get! The natural and delicate flavour of tender, fresh fish is absolutely delightful.
Some of the harbours along the Yilan and the northeastern coast include Dasi Harbour, Genfang Harbour and Aodi Harbour. All these harbours are a must-try for avid seafood lovers. There’s no shortage of restaurants at each, so just look around and see which grabs your interest.
If you want to enjoy a traditional Taiwanese meal in peace, then Wild Smoke is just the place for you. Known for exceptionally great food, the place overlooks the Shuanglianpi – a lake around the Fushan Botanical Gardens. With its scenic beauty, Wild Smoke is ideal for hosting parties.
