Since the Hsueshan Tunnel opened, traveling from Taipei to Yilan has become much easier. Consequently, Yilan has suddenly become a hotspot for those looking to get away for a few days. Silks Place, located in downtown Yilan, shares a building with the biggest shopping mall on the east coast, Lunar Plaza (6-11F). As there are a number of interesting cultural sites near this hotel, travelers can conveniently learn about and explore this northeastern corner of Taiwan. Many business travelers also like coming here for some enjoyable leisure and entertainment.

Silks Palace has a total of 193 guest rooms, ranging in size from 12 to 33 pings. All guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the beautiful city from their rooms. The higher-end suites not only boast a larger space, but also have private balconies and a jacuzzi-type bathtub. Hotel restaurants include Mix Gourmet, Red Lantern (serving traditional Chinese food) and The Lounge. Moreover, there are four multi-function meeting rooms equipped with audio-video and lighting facilities, plus Yilan's biggest international ballroom, with an eight-meter-high, pillar-free interior.

The nearly 1,800-ping large Club Lefoon is situated in the sixth-floor Sky Garden and features indoor/outdoor swimming pools, leisure water facilities, a sauna, fitness room and the Wellspring SPA. Making a trip to Lunar Plaza ensures a comprehensive shopping, relaxation and entertainment experience that provides enjoyment for all.

Arriving at Silks Place Yilan, you'll be greeted by a large wall of engraved, wood-carved puppets and a two-story-tall carving of a Chinese "door god", plus Yilan's native "tongluo" art and a display of Taiwanese floral-print clothing. All this is designed to present guests with Taiwan's traditional culture and the spirit of Yilan.

The hotel's Mix Gourmet restaurant offers European, Asian and Japanese cuisine, including some exquisite desserts, all served buffet-style. This spacious, comfortable and well-lit place is truly Yilan's best buffet restaurant, with an open-kitchen set-up, great view and excellent food. Give their seafood a try, including a variety of fresh, quality fish dishes, using fish delivered fresh from around Taiwan and prepared on the spot as you desire. Located in the lobby, The Lounge is another great place, serving light cuisine and drinks. Its high-ceiling design and the "Sky Well" changes the indoor lighting according to the time of day.

When the stars come out, Lunar Plaza is also one of Yilan's best destinations. Red Lantern is a traditional Chinese restaurant with classy oriential decor and a deep red color theme--a fashionable setting for its fine Chinese and Cantonese-style dishes. Meanwhile, the high-ceilinged ballroom is the only banquet venue in Yilan that holds up to 100 tables.

Unlike most other five-star establishments, this place incorporates a lot of local color and flair into its design and decor, breathing new life and spirit into old traditional culture and representing stability, warmth and tolerance. Every corner of the hotel tells a different story from various eras and lives, providing guests with a impressive and moving ambiance. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
