Hualien Sugar Factory : It’s Not Just A Factory

刊登 前次更新時間


Sugar became an important export in the late 19th century after the forced opening of ports following the second Opium War. Up until the 1930s it dominated the economy, and under Japanese colonial rule, sugar fields and processing factories were established all over the island. The Hualien Sugar Factory was built in 1921 and at its peak was processing 2600 tons of sugarcane a day.

Even if you don’t plan to stay the night at the factory, stop at the ice-cream shop (ice cream NT$45, open 8am to 8pm), and wander around the factory grounds. Here’s a bit of trivia for you: the large carp pools beside the ice-cream shop are craters from the US bombing of Taiwan during WWII.

The sugar factory is just south of the town of Guangfu (光復) on Hwy 9. There are signs in English on the highway directing you there.
