Built on the side of a mountain based on a multi-level station design, Visitors can now stand on the roof of the former station to gaze at the Pacific for oceanic views (perhaps of the sunrise) or to do some trainspotting. You will find the entrance to Duoliang at highway marker 400.5km on Provincial Highway 9 heading south from Taitung, which will lead you up the hill and make a right for the viewing platform. You will see the distinctive red platform barriers on the former station platform and the newly built seacliff railway bridge. This is a spot for many a great photo by visitors and railway buffs alike, who capture the distinctive flavor of the south eastern shoreline along with trains entering and leaving the bridge and tunnel.
The viewing deck is open to visitors from 7am to 6pm daily, with a cover charge of NT$10 to cover the costs of groundskeeping. As you're visiting a location with an active railway, please do not attempt to get to and cross the tracks for the station platform for your own safety as trains will be speeding past at near full speeds frequently.

Colourful and spectacular train station in East TaiwanThis train station is located in the south of Taitung, and it is a bit far away from the town centre. Tourists need to drive or take a taxi to this station. There is a lookout area for people to see the whole view of this station and the Pacific Ocean. If the weather is nice, you can see the colourful decoration, blue sky and ocean. This station is still operating, and sometimes you can see the train pass through this station; hence, please be careful when you are taking photos on the platform.

An old train station Nice ocean viewOn our way back, we stopped by to check this old train station out, the view is fantastic to show both the blue sky and ocean water of Taiwan southeast coast view. There are a lot of food stands but probably open only for weekends and holidays. Apparently, the place has not been well maintained to make it even better.
Go only if you have timeIt is not a very big area. For the day we went, it was cloudy, thus the site didn’t look as magnificent as touted. Plus, as there are some constructions going on in the area, it sort of spoilt the beauty of it. As it is a little out of the way, would recommend going only if you have time.
A small siteBetter drive to here and park your car down on the road, you can’t drive up there near the station. It’s a small tourist site, you can see the tracks by the sea which is quite beautiful especially when the train passing through... there are some food vendors selling aboriginal treats do not hesitate to try some and enjoy!
Drop by if you are passing by this roadFacing the pacific ocean makes tis Duoliang train station famous, with a train passing by you may feel the moment of a little bit worth to be here, otherwise is nothing to see. Driving from Taitung city takes about an hour to reach, car park at the road side and walk climb a bit slope but won't be strain, so frankly suggest if you are on the way passing by you may stop by to have a look, then is not need to make a special trip to here.
