Hualien County (花蓮縣) is the largest and least populated county in Taiwan. On the east coast, it contains the island's largest port. It is the starting point of the Eastern Cross-Island Railway (東部縱貫鐵路), and finish point of Suao-Hualien Highway (蘇花公路) and the Central Cross-Island Highway (中部橫貫公路). It also contains part of Taroko National Park.

History

Hualien was one of the last places on Taiwan to be settled by the Han Chinese, because it is isolated in location. It was mostly modernized in the 1960s.
