This is the CouchSurfing group for Yílán County 宜蘭縣.
Join this group if you live in or are visiting Yilan County. In addition to Yilán City 宜蘭市, this group is also for the towns of Luódōng 羅東鎮, Tóuchéng 頭城鎮, and Sū'ào 蘇澳鎮 as well as the townships of Jiāoxī 礁溪鄉, Zhuàngwéi 壯圍鄉, Wǔjié 五結鄉, Nán'ào 南澳鄉, Dàtóng 大同鄉, Dōngshān 冬山鄉, Sānxīng 三星鄉, and Yuánshān 員山鄉.
With the somewhat recent opening of the tunnel from Taipei, Yilan has become a lot less isolated. Come enjoy surfing, scuba diving, whale watching, cycling, rock climbing, paragliding, uncrowded beaches, natural hot springs, and beautiful mountain national parks. Yilan is also a great place to experience small town, traditional Taiwanese language, food, and culture. And it's all just an hour from Taipei!
(This is a work in progress. Suggestions and recommendations are very welcome!)
Here is a Google Map of Yilan County with useful information and points of interest marked. Enjoy!
