Compare Xitou Forest recreation area and Shanlinshi

From browsing the pictures of the two, my impression is that they are offering more or less the same scenery, except for waterfalls in Shanlinshi.

Am I correct or should I visit both?

Thanks

Shanlinshi, or Sun Link Sea, is much more natural. There's a Wangyou Forest nearby.

Xitou has more man-made facilities. The public transport there is convenient.

Xitou is just on the way to go to Sun Link Sea.

Both of them are worth enough to stay one day. If you have enough time, you should visit both.

Oh! The elevation of Sun Link Sea is higher than Xitou.

So you may feel cooler in Sun Link Sea.

You can also see sea cloud in Sun Link Sea in the afternoon if the weather condition is good.
