With year-round warm weather, Pingtung is one of Taiwan’s top beach destinations. Visit the pristine white sand and clear water of the beaches at Kenting National Park, which attracts tourists from around the world. However, most other parts of the region remain relatively undiscovered by Western tourists. This makes Pingtung a rewarding destination for those eager to experience genuine Taiwanese culture.
The region’s capital, Pingtung City, is often overlooked by tourists, but there is much to enjoy in this pleasant town. Immerse yourself in everyday Taiwanese life at its two night markets. Sample the street food at Pingtung Night Market or allow yourself to lose track of time exploring games, retail shops and food stalls at Ruiguang Night Market. During the day, head to Zhongshan Park and join the locals for an afternoon of dancing, listening to live music and playing chess.
Kenting National Park’s white-sand beaches, blue waters and lush forests rival any of Asia’s more famous beach destinations. You may recognize Kenting’s sandy shores and rugged cliffs as one of the locations for the film Life of Pi. Snorkel, swim, dive, surf or spend a day lounging on the soft sand.
Explore the limestone caves and unusual canyons of Kenting Forest Recreation Area or browse the impressive marine life displays at the Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium. Rent a bike and cycle along the park’s rural roads or spot deer, wild boar and colorful butterflies at Sheding Nature Park.
The Burning of the Wang Yeh Boats festival in Donggang is one of the most exciting times to visit Pingtung. Held every 3 years in October or November, this multi-day event culminates with the burning of a 46-foot (14-meter) wooden boat.
Pingtung can be reached in about 4 hours by car or high-speed rail from Taipei. Winter is the best time to visit, when temperatures are mild yet the water is warm enough for swimming and water sports.
This hotel is ideally situated for Kenting, close enough but also far enough away to not be distracted or disturbed. The public areas of the hotel are very clean and well kept and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a really nice pool and gardens that are also well maintained. ...
The hotel is not new but the atmosphere is nice and staff were very helpful and well organised. Thanks particularly to Evelyn Liu at Reception for helping to locate my son’s phone after he dropped it in a taxi. The beach by the hotel Shaowan is very clean and the water is crystal clear with great ...
Facilities are all perfect for a family but rooms and amenities are all in need of renovations and repairs.
We had a lovely stay. The owners made us feel so welcome! It felt as if we were staying with old friends. The rooms were basic but very clean. The location was superb! Beach across the street and night market a block away. We had private balconies that were comfortable had had seabreeze coming through. ...
Spacious room for a decent price and it's not too far from food with a vehicle. Breakfast was deliciously cooked when seated. One minor issue though, I was resting had my alarm clock set to ring at 10:50AM since the checkout time was 11AM but the cleaning lady started knocking at 10:45AM and opened ...
