Duoliang Train Station

Duoliang Train Station is in Taimali Township, Taitung County, about 35 minutes drive from the hotel. As one of the train stations in South-link Line, Duoliang Station was shut down in 2006 due to slow business. The Railway Bureau chose to build a signal station in Duoliang for single line trains to converge when planning the South-link Line due to the long distance between Longsi and Jinlun. Duoliang Station was on a hill with tunnels on both ends; thus, Railway Bureau decided to elevate the station. Regarded as the “most beautiful train station in Taiwan” in the eyes of the fans of trains, Duoliang Station is where you can overlook the Pacific Ocean, as if standing before the most beautiful views in the corner of the sky and sea, forgetting and leaving the hustle-bustle behind.
