Taitung is a city in the southeastern coast of Taiwan. The seat of Taitung County, Taitung City covers 110 sq km (42 sq mi) and has a population of 109,600 people (2011 estimate).

The city of Taitung is perhaps best known as the gateway for visiting Green Island and Orchid Island, two offshore islands located off the coast of Taitung. The city was established in the 16th century as a settlement by the Puyuma and Amis tribespeople. During Dutch administration and subsequent Qing Dynasty, the area was called Beinan. The city was known as Taitung Town until 1976, when it was granted city status.
