From Kenting, I took train to Taitung via Fangliao train station. I spent a night in Taitung as need to catch up morning ferry to Lanyu (蘭嶼) or also known as Orchid island, part of Taitung county. There is aboriginal celebration on the night I spent in Taitung.
Lanyu is famous for its aboriginal Yami people, nature and flying fish especially during flying fish season. To explore the island, you will need scooter as rare public transport and need international driving license to rent one. Even though I had international license, the first renter did not want to rent me hence need to go to the second rental. The scooter rental is just next to the ferry harbour. You will notice on your right after you arrived in Lanyu.
The island is not that big. You can easily take roam around in one to two hour around. There is 7 eleven shop nearby the harbour with its free internet. You can have cheap meal and hot coffee inside.
When you visit the island, you must try the flying fish. It’s the island’s speciality.
