    Since Hsuehshan Tunnel went into operation, Taipei City and Yilan have become closer to each other, further boosting Yilan's thriving tourism industry. Many Taipei people like driving through the Hsuehshan Tunnel to Yilan just for shopping. Yilan has a very charming and relaxed atmosphere. Whenever you stroll through Luodong Night Market, Qingou Night Market, or Dongmen Night Market, or go shopping in Jiaoxi Shopping District, Suao Shopping District, or the Farmers' Association Yang Sheng Tourist Factory, you'll be deeply impressed by the slow pace of life. At these places, you can really feel that shopping is a relaxing and pleasurable experience, rather than a pressing chore. 

    After enjoying a seafood feast in Yilan, you can also take home fresh fish. Nanfangao Tourist Fish Market and Daxi Fish Market are 2 vibrant port seafood markets where you can buy live seafood. Yilan also has new fashionable shopping destinations, such as Luna Plaza, a complex leisure shopping centre covering a vast area, and New Active Market, a cultural and creative market organised on an occasional basis. In these destinations, you can find many well-designed crafts to beautify your life.
