Bring on the summer! If you find summers in Taiwan hard to get through, you DEFINITELY need to get to Ilan's Dong Shan River and go wet and wild, in a family-friendly way. There are lots of international acts, water to play in and delicious food to eat.
Here are some pictures from our trip last year. We stayed for the day. I was very tempted to stay overnight. There are many great little guesthouses in Ilan.
