When I arrived at the Taitung train station, I transfer to a bus to Dulan, which is a small village in Taitung. There is an Amis Tribe here. I went off the Bus at the sugar factory stop. And, I found out a signboard indicates Dulan village immediately and there is also a stone painted like a water buffalo. Then, I went into the Dulan sugar factory. It was a sugar factory before. But now it doesn't produce sugar or operate anymore. However, people can still visit and go in to see the facilities. Or, you can buy handicrafts or postcards in Haodebai, which is a small store in the factory. You can also buy sugar factory coffee.Take a seat, and enjoy your afternoon time.
The wall of the sugar factory is colorful.
There is a stage where there would be some music performances or plays here. If you come here, I think you should not miss the music performance in Taitung. The music is pure and simple, but would really moves your and impresses you.
After I put my luggage in the hostel, I went to the beach. It takes only 15 minutes from the hostel to the beach. When I walk down the road, I found out that there is a bridge. I stood on the bridge the look down the river beside it, and I could also see the ocean which makes the scenery really awesome. I tried to take a picture of it, and at that time an old woman riding her motorcycle and say to me" Be careful!" The people here is so nice and friendly, even though I am a stranger to them, they would show that they welcome me to be here.
It is a sunny day and a good day to go to the beach. The sea is so blue and the sky is clear too. There are many driftwoods on the beach. And, there are some tourists surfing in the sea. Maybe I can learn how to surf next time though I can not swim very well. In such a hot weather, the best way to be cool is to soak in the sea! It is good for me even to just sit on the beach, watcihing the sea and waves beats upon the coast and listening the sound of the winds and doing nothing. I think it would be happy to spend all the time of the day here.
It started to get dark, and I walked back to the hostel and try to get some food. No matter where I go, I could find some good scenery and the air is fresh here. I think it is really a good place to stay.
