“A short welcome boat trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Took the ferry after a LONG day of eating and enjoyed the fresh air, and time on the water. Pulled into Qijing and got off to walk along the main street, and look into the food stalls and game vendors. Played a few mini carnival games, had a grilled corn and shaved ice, and then went to look at the ocean. It was a bit dark to see around but it was a nice relaxing walk. The ferry is cheap and quick and its a nice way to get out on the water. Its also fun to watch all of the motorbikes piling into the bottom level of the ferry and watching them drive off when you dock.

“Qijing Ferry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

It smells a bit, but overall the trip is great! The island is actually beautiful and this is the only way across, so it is well worth it!

“Best time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Although line up for the ferry may look long and discouraging, there are so many ferries going back and forth that it goes by fast. Rent buts when you visit, we did and it's cheap and a fun way to get around the city. Go before 4pm, because the lighthouse closes around 4-430pm, unfortunately we missed it. Make sure when you are in the chihou fort & lighthouse area to not forget to see the cijin star tunnel :) Eating at the night market is a must as well :) Definitely a fun way to spend a day is visiting this island!

It's a ferry. Very cheap, nice views, and worth a half day trip to the island.
