Hualien Sugar FactoryThe sugar factory has now been transformed into central Hualien’s tourism development center. It has preserved a row of tidy Japanese-style single-story dorms that were built during the period under Japanese rule. To date, the buildings have had 80 years of history.Hualien Sugar FactoryAt the sugar factory, visitors are advised to find out how sugar we use every day is made, and differences among white sugar, rock sugar, brown sugar, and dark brown sugar.Hualien Sugar Factory

Although large-scaled cane sugar production has ended, the sugar factory has been transformed into a tourism factory in 2002 for development toward a park for tourism, recreation, education, culture, and experience. In the future, the factory will transform into a “sugar industry cultural & creative park”. Besides become a witness of history, it aims at becoming a tourist attraction in Hualien.
