Room Experience

Bear Forest Villa has 5 different room categories for two to four people. All villas have an outdoor bathtub and are designed with wood and huge windows… and are of course decorated with bears in different sizes. I shared my villa with a man-sized bear!

The villa is equipped with everything you need including big Flat TV, air condition, hair dryer and a sufficient amount of power outlets. Next to the bed there is a Bose loudspeaker that you can connect to your phone via bluetooth. Also the toiletries are of high quality by “L’Occitane en Provence”, one of my preferred brands.

Restaurant

Another highlight of Bear Forest Villa is the food. During my stay I have tried several local dishes and liked them all a lot.

Did you ever try Hot Pot? It’s delicious, especially when it is cold outside and you need to warm up. #hotpot – #hualien – #Taiwan

What to do in Hualien?

Taroko National Park is most probably the reason why you want to travel to Hualien. And yes, it is definitely a Must-See! “Taroko” is the name of one of the 16 Taiwanese aborigines tribes. It means “old, wise people”.

Thank you Taiwan Vista Tour for the great tour and for taking me to the most beautiful places. I have had so much fun and learnt a lot.
