a) Consider visiting Maokong on a separate day from Yehliu and Keelung. Maokong is on the opposite direction from Yehliu and Keelung. XMD can be visited in the evening after your return from Yehliu and Keelung.

b) Keelung's main and famous attractions are:

Miaokou food street -- Local snacks and night market;

Chung Cheng Park -- 22.5m high white Kuan Yin statue flanked by two stone lions on a hilltop. Panoramic views of Keelung harbour and city;

Heping (Peace) Island (originally named “She-liao island”) -- Tourist fish market and sea-eroded rock beach resembling Yehliu.

The first two attractions are the most frequented by travellers and can be toured in half a day.

Other attractions less frequented by travellers are:

Lover's Lake – lake with a suspension bridge;

Seagate fortress (Hai Men Tian Sian) -- ancient fort;

Eighteen Luohan-tong -- statues of Hua Mulan, Yue Fei etc

c) Dahua Hotel: www.dahuahotel.url.tw/dahua_Eng/English.html

5 mins walk to Keelung Miaokou and night market.
