Favourite Cities and Hotels in Taiwan

To get to Yilan from Taipei - the inevitable origin point for most - visitors can take a train, bus or even hire a taxi. The trip is 50 mi (80 km) from Taipei 101 to Yilan City.

The county is perfect for avid cyclists and, indeed, as a famously bicycle-centric nation, myriad rental shops are all too happy to oblige. From the forest areas to the coast, a number of paths unfurl for hearty hikers and casual pedestrians as well.

As is the case in most of urban Taiwan, a scooter is often the most convenient and affordable mode of transport in Yilan City proper.

Yilan Rundown

The northeast corner of Taiwan is a pseudo last frontier of sorts for plucky travellers on the hunt for a tasty side dish to accompany meaty usual suspects like Taipei, Kaohsiung, Taichung, Alishan and Yushan. Yilan County is not big by Taiwan standards but, at over 2,143 km² doubles Hong Kong. About one quarter of the county population of 460,000 lives in the capital, Yilan City. ... Read more »

The diminutive, compact city is a fine gateway to Yilan’s charms. With mountains on three sides and the East China Sea on the other, the county is a snug fit in a most photogenic and magnetic sandwich. Of the inherent splendours, the Northeast Coast National Scenic Area is a spectacular standout. The de facto national park cuts a handsome swath from New Taipei to Yilan County, with implicit highlights like Fulong Beach, Honeymoon Bay and whale watcher hub Guishan Island.

Yilan is no one trick pony, however. Prestige scenery aside, the county also teems with hot (and cold) springs resorts, superb night markets and museums. All in all then, a short and worthwhile commute from Taipei 101 and the busy capital of Taiwan.

Yilan Climate

Yilan’s climate, like most areas in Taiwan, is largely affected by the monsoon season (June through October). Average annual precipitation measures about 22 inches (559 mm) and occurs during the summer and fall months. With four individual seasons, Yilan has very hot, humid summers, comfortable springs and autumns, and short, mild winters.

Yilan Events

Erlong River Dragon Boat Race is a model old school long boat competition that coincides with the annual Duanwu/Double Fifth/Dragon Boat Festival.

Luodong Night Market and Yilan Night Market provide foodies and gourmands alike with ample snacks and delicacies on which to gorge and graze.

When To Go

Much like Taipei and the rest of Taiwan, Yilan has a humid subtropical climate with high humidity from one month to the next. The coast mitigates some of this but not, regrettably, typhoons from the South China Sea. The majority of annual precipitation floods Yilam from May to October.

Heavy rain is a good reason to avoid Taiwan in summer in general but not the only one. With temperatures in the 76°F (24°C) to 94°F (34°C) range, it is very hot as well.

Your best bet is to visit Yilan and Taiwan in the winter or a month like March or November. When the torrid weather wanes, Yilan is much more amenable.

Getting There & Around

Most travellers take flights into the airport in Taipei, and from there travel the Taipei/Yilan Freeway (No. 5) south to reach Yilan. The trip by car takes about 40 minutes. Buses are also available to make this journey from the airport.

Taxis and buses from the Taipei train station take tourists to and around Yilan. Most buses are express, so there are no stops on the way. As in most Taiwanese cities, visitors who want to get around in Yilan either walk or rent scooters.
