My wife, brother-in-law (both Taiwanese) and me (American) went to this site one Wednesday afternoon. We stopped at the entrance booth and were told it would cost $200 NT each to gain entrance to the area. My brother-in-law got visibly angry and told the attendant that the charge was exorbitant and outrageous (in Taiwanese). We, reluctantly, paid the $600 NT... More

Is to go on their own to Osan head water box is a little much. First, it moves to the new 営站 in TaiTetsu. From there to the Rokko of town ride on public vehicles of new 営客 luck. Public transportation is no longer from... More

The reservoir has a long, interesting history. There is a memorial to the Japanese engineer who built the dam in 1930. It's worth spending some time reading the background and getting a sense of what he accomplished. We toured the dam and campground area. There are bicycles available to rent, which is helpful to get around. The "Coral Lake" is... More

Tainan Wusanto Reservoir has a history, When you walk along you can see the monument of the Japanese genius who built this great reservoir, The area is very remote and there is no restaurants, shops or any other food outlets, which is why I gave it an Average. But if you are looking to spend time with your lover or... More

Tainan has several really nice lakes near by. They are pretty to walk around and make for a nice trip. They always miss some facilities, like a decent place to have lunch, etc.
