“Taijiang National Park? What is there to see?”

This is not the first time Shao-Ying Chen from Taijiang National Park Interpretation and Education Section has been asked this question. “When speaking of Yushan National Park, people know that the main attraction is Mt. Jade, and as of Taroko National Park is the Taroko Gorge. However, when visitors come here, they will often ask ‘what is Taijiang?’”

A building complex white as salt mountains, this is the operation center of Taijiang National Park. Because of its unique architectural style of white walls and corridors with water meandering through it, Taijiang National Park’s administration center has become a popular check-in spot since its completion. The visitor center that can answer the question “What is Taijiang?” was still under construction working around the clock in one of the “salt mountains” at that time.
