A Room With a View

The view from the abandoned hotel outside of Dulan.

This is the view from the third floor of an abandoned hotel overlooking Jiāmǔzǐ Bay 加母子灣, a bay south of Dulan 都蘭 in Taitung 台東. Evidently the scenery was not attractive enough to keep this place in business—the entire building has been stripped of anything that could be reused, windows and all. Down below there are the remains of a beach bar beneath the overgrowth. Here in Taiwan there are even ruins in paradise.
