“Best time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 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!

“Check it out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

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

“good day out”

remember to rent bicycles from the ferry pier at Cijin island and cycle around the place. Stop by any stalls to have shaved ice, fruit of grilled seafood, it's lovely.

Best to go on bicycle because walking can be a lot without.

“Short trip to Qijing island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

Qiljing is like a less-crowded , saner and quieter version of Dansui. We took our bikes over from the city (bikes go for free) and rode around the island. There are several get on points in Kaohsiung and the trip lasts about 5~10 minutes.
