If you come to Taiwan, you have to try shrimp fishing atleast once ! People do this with families and friends. Sit there with a fishing pole and catch large prawns (typically about 6-8 inches). After a few hours of shrimping, you salt them and...More

Excellent fun, we spent about 3 hours fishing and caught about 50 of these huge shrimps, each about 8" long. They give you a net, a rod and some bait. Watch how the locals do it and soon enough you will have your first shrimp....More

You're going to sit there for an hour or two and more than likely catch very few shrimp. And that's not just sour grapes - the most I saw from a pair of Taiwanese dudes was 12 in two hours. So best case scenario you...More

And therefore, totally recommended! Be prepared to communicate by signs unless you can find someone visiting who speaks mandarin. After getting all set, sit around and see how the experienced locals get a shrimp every 5 minutes while you don't get anything... Well, I got...More
