Orchid Island: Must see things

Your dragon head rock eating a goat:


Wow, we have seen beautiful Penghu, but this looks as interesting as Pescadores!

I’ve been to Penghu four times since I moved to Taiwan nine years ago, so you know I like it. However, Lanyu is an amazing world unto itself.

My 2 most memorable trips were to Penghu Island around 15 years ago and Green Island about the same time. Definitely need to put Orchid Island on the must-see list.

Here’s a video from a few years back, it’s a bit long and the voice sounds terrible, but you can see most of the places of interest.

I liked the Green Green Grasslands. I hated passing the nuke waste plant several times…



Watching your video brought back wonderful memories for me. I want to return to Lanyu now :grinning:

I have a friend that works on Orchid Island. Seems hard to believe, but according to them “Orchid island is always windy and cloudy” like gray skies.

Anyone spent much time there?

He’s been there a few times, as well as his cycling buddy Michael Turton. Maybe contact them.

Search “Orchid Island” on that blog and a whole lotta pics and story show up.
