[quote=“Abacus”]I was planning on heading out to Xiao LiuChiu for Moon Festival but the typhoon and other circumstances will probably delay this trip. A couple of questions.
The ferry/scooter rental seem simple enough. Is there any concern of the ferries selling out and not being able to get tickets on arrival? I might have to take the last ferry on a Saturday night.[/quote]
Possible. But there are two ferry terminals: one private and one public. The private is better and is the first terminal.
Where is the best place to park a motorcycle in Donggang? I traveled to Donggang on a day trip last month and there seemed to be a pay parking lot that they kept trying to get me to park in a lot near the ferry. Is this the recommended place to park or is it fine to find a free place on the street? Obviously I don’t want to be towed but I could park a block away from the ferry.[/quote]
I always park my car in the lot just at the end of the road past the terminals. Never seem to have to pay. There is scooter parking there.
No idea about the water. Don’t know any grecommended snorkelling outfits but you usually just ask at your hotel and they’ll call someone. There’s a diving/snorkelling place near the 7-Eleven, or just around the corner.
How is the camping? Is the only place to camp at the campground?[/quote]
Lovely grounds on a bluff overlooking the sea. I’m pretty sure they have snorkelling gear. You can’t camp anywhere else not least because half the island is graveyards.
