Eating / Food
One thing that sets the Sea Art Hostel apart from other guesthouses in Dulan is the possibility to cook your own meals in a setting that seems right out of the Jungle Book.
Roman and Emily have built the coolest outdoor kitchen I've ever seen (and used) in my life. For me, half the pleasure of staying at this wild refuge in the mountains is to cook there and chill among the exotic, tropical vegetation. It's the perfect setting to have a feast with friends, enjoy a drink, or simply lay back and read a good book.
There's everything you need to cook and store food here: fridge, oven, stove, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots, pans, and tons of utensils. You can also have a BBQ at the fire pit.
If you don't feel like bringing your own food and cooking, you can simply head back to Dulan where a couple of restaurants serve decent Chinese and Western food.

Getting to Taitung Sea Art Hostel
From Taitung train station, there's a free shuttle bus that goes all the way to Dulan village. When you exit the train station, turn right and walk all the way to the last bus stop. You can't miss it - it's red and it's got a sign that says: Tour Taiwan. Buses leave every 40 minutes.
Pick-Up Service: You can get a fairly cheap ride from Taitung airport, train station, or the old Sugar Factory in Dulan from:
If you need pick-up service, you can first contact Emily or Roman either by phone or email to tell them when you will arrive in the area, and they will arrange it for you.
If you're driving or riding, give them a call when you get to Dulan for clear instructions on how to get to the guesthouse... it is a bit tricky to find.
Attractions Close to Taitung Sea Art Hostel
Taitung Hostels... Hard to find good ones!
It seems that there isn't much information about Taitung accommodation and Taitung hostels online. Actually, there isn't much at all about Taitung travel, attractions, or beaches along the southeastern coast of Taiwan.
Over the past two years, I've gotten lots of emails from visitors who were curious about cheap hostels in the Taitung area. My inbox is always filled with emails asking the same questions: What are the best attractions in Taitung? Where can I sleep in Taitung? What is the best Taitung hostel? What are the best restaurants in Taitung?
I live in Taichung, on the west side of the island, and it's kind of time consuming for me to travel to Taitung or Dulan. I'd really appreciate if you could help me introduce attractions, accommodation, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, activities around Taitung. Contact me if you'd like to share your Taiwanese secrets!
