A plain with a beautiful view
Jialulan Recreational Area or 伽路蘭遊憩區 is one of the beautiful spots close to Taitung City, where you can enjoy wonderful views of the pacific in front of you and the mountains at your back. The name in Chinese 伽路蘭 is merely a transliteration of the Amis tribe's name Kararuan, which means "the place to wash one's hair" (source). It's a small plain, which is often used as a venue for concerts of fairs. That day, when we visited, concerts were scheduled for the afternoon and the next day, but we didn't have time, we had to move on.
Here are some photos from Jialulan:
