In the north of Taiwan lies Keelung which has an impressive hilltop statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. The road on the northeast coast offers an amazing drive, passing the foothills of the Central Mountain Range and enjoying views of the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Visitors will travel through various small villages, the lifestyles of which have little changed with the arrival of high technology.

Some other dazzling attractions of the region are Yehliu, famous for its incredible rock formations (Queen's Head); Green Bay and Chinshan beaches, with complete beachfront resort amenities; Shihmen Dam; and Wulai, a resort on the mountain in south of Taipei.

Wulai is the sight of a hilltop park and of a village. It is occupied by aboriginals who, not only making and selling artifacts but also giving song and dance performances to tourists.

The Northeast Coast National Scenic Area, also with remarkable rock formations, is good for swimming, diving, surfing, water-skiing and camping. It is also one of the finest places for seashore fishing and rock climbing.
