Taitung County of Taiwan can be roughly divided into the Central Mountain Range, the East Rift Valley, the Beinan River Delta, the Coastal Mountain Range and the Taiyuan Basin.
Blessed with geographic advantages, a pleasant climate and fertile soil, Taitung yields a vast array of agricultural produce.
