Welcome Here is the correct spelling for some of the place names (that’s the English version)
Fonganshan Buddhist temple.
Dapeng Bay (in the area of Dongang). Dapeng and Dongang are both great. If I remember correctly you can get to Xiao Liciou Island from Dongang. That’s if you want to get off the bigger island. The smaller island is great for sights, snorkeling and diving. As you enter Dongang there is a fantastic place with some of the biggest and best shrimp I’ve eaten in my entire life. I just don’t know their name, or where they are! But then that whole area is fantastic for seafood if that’s your thing.
If you can get on route 21 and get to Cishan, you can go to most places from there - purple butterfly, yellow butterfly, etc. As a side - don’t try to find the moon world that one of the board signs shows. It just ain’t the way the sign says it should be. Cishan is a great little town you might want to explore as well. On the way to yellow butterfly stop over at Meinong Hakka village-it’s an experience. I see there are also other hotpsrings - Baolia, Pulao and Takangshan. Never have been there, so don’t know how they are. If you can get your hands on the map - Kaohsiung County tourism introduction you’ll find a thousand things to do and see. I found one at the airport in Kaoshiung. But you may find one at the train station too. Or if you can get one from the tourism place that would be great too. See there are a couple of hiking trails and things as well in the county.
Oh, if you’re going to be in Kaohsiung (Monkey Mountain is in Kaohsiung) go to Chengching Lake - it’s simply, simply beautiful and very peaceful. This big handmade lake in the middle of the city but inside the premises…wow.
Let me know if you’re looking for more info.
