Ferry to Lanyu (AKA Orchid Island)

Hello!

Does someone know if there is just one choice for the ferry to Lanyu from Taitung?

I am trying to find some cheaper alternatives to the 2400NTD round trip one… but i get confusing info.

Thanks!

According to the website below it’s NT$2000 from Houbihu (near Kending).

2400 from Taidong? o.O
I’ve been there 2 weeks ago and I think we spent much less than that, when I get back home I’ll see if I can still find the tickets!

I cannot find the tickets, but my wife reckons they were under 2000.

Sorry guys, but google translator doesn’t make much sense…

Does that mean that the route Kending - Orchid island is cancelled?

No, it just means they switched boats. Hengxing Boat is switched from Houbihu-Lanyu route to Taitung-Lanyu route. Jinxing 3 Boat will be serving the Houbihu-Lanyu route instead.
