Thanks for the confirmation, but Damn!
We’re making plans for next weekend – Moonfestival weekend. We’ll take an extra day off.
But my wife called just now to make flight reservations to Penghu and they sold out long ago (of course). For Green Island we’re on the waiting list, but we may get seats. If not, I guess maybe we end up staying in Taidong, which wouldn’t be a bad alternative.
Other possibilities I mentioned to her are either Kending (including camping there) or camping in the mountains somewhere. I’ve not yet drug her out in the woods, overnight with the dirt, snakes, bugs and mosquitos and it may be a challenge getting her consent, notwithstanding that my daughter’s very eager to go and I know we would all have a great time. But, I suspect we’ll end up in a hotel somewhere instead.[/quote]
MT, if you want to camp in Taidong, try Hong Ye hot springs, the scenery is quite nice, it is usually not to crowded, and there are facilities to keep the wife and young’n happy.
They have swimming facilities, hot spring hot tubs, as well as the natural hot springs in the river just next to the campgrounds.
Bring a boogie board and a float tube for the daughter and you can chill out on the river. The water level is quite good right now, due to the nice rainfall we have had lately.
It is run by the Bunan tribe.
PM me if you need more details.
