We went to Penghu during the firework festival. The firework display was fantastic and it goes on for an entire month twice a week. The island is nice and peaceful. We took a few trips. One to Wangan and Qimei, the other to Bikini island and Jibei. We enjoyed the entire trip but with so much fun and sun we... More

You just need to spend 45 mins flight from Taipei Taipei Song Shan international airport (domestic flight) to Penghu. You can easily rent and ride motorcycle to visit the whole island. There has many scenic spots within the island, which depends on where you want to visit first. We suggest to visit Penghu in the summer time (March to September)... More

We wanted some Taiwanese beach time but didn't like the look of Kenting. So glad we made the choice to go to Penghu. Easy 50 minute flight from Taipei. Easy 20 minute drive from the airport. Great atmosphere - laid back lifestyle - excellent beaches - very safe - very affordable. Taxis are cheap and plentiful but there seems to... More

The natural view, nice people, beautiful beaches, delicious food, a-must-go-place for your summer vacation. Prepare your sunblock for sunbathing the whole day.

We have done some researches and found out that aparantly it was able to get there by ferry from Tainan. It turned out that there are no ferries going from... More

But more over is the scenery on the way from the dock to see the rocks. We chose to rent scooters to go, and enjoy the journey, the view on... More

There are many beaches in and around Penghu, and it's amazing that all of them are clean and not crowded as one would see in most beaches. There are different beaches for you to go for the sunrise and sunset. The seafood is really fresh and cheaper as compared to Taiwan. If you're not into water activities or the beach,... More
