Get around Edit

The area of Ren'ai is very mountainous and may be more difficult to navigate than other areas of Taiwan. Travellers who are more physically fit may find the cycling in the area enjoyable. Another option is to hire a scooter. Because of the terrain, it is even more important than usual to check the tread on the tires and other aspects of the vehicles road-worthiness before setting off.
