For those of you who like going to the beach at Tahsi, a popular surf, camping and party beach about 2 hours on the train from Taipei, you should be aware that things are getting ready to change there. On October 11 the nephew of the Premier - as in the Premier of Taiwan - drowned there. Last week there were meetings among government agencies with some jurisdiction over the beach. What they’ll do still hasn’t been decided, but possibilities include stricter administration and possible restrictions on activities there (the surfers probably won’t stand for this but they may try), or speeding up plans to develop the beach into a resort.
