About the tour

This trip takes you to Kenting at the southernmost tip of Taiwan, where the azure ocean and verdant mountains welcome you for a pleasant holiday between sea and forest.

The Kenting National Forest Recreation Area is the only tropical botanical garden in Taiwan; its unique uplifted coral reef forest and diverse limestone terrain formations are truly amazing.

During a night excursion in Sheding Nature Park, you’ll get a close look at its biotope and explore Taiwan’s unique ecology.

Stay at a resort hotel with the beach view, where you can enjoy all kinds of beachside and water fun activities while breathing in the beauty of the bay.


In Southern Taiwan you’ll not only meet particularly warmhearted people, but even the tropical forest will welcome you in all its warmth. Explore the Kenting National Forest Recreation Area, home to an uplifted coral reef forest, limestone terrain formations, and stalactite caves. Participate in a nighttime eco-tour excursion in Sheding Nature Park, following your tour guide to learn more about the rich wildlife here, such as Golden Birdwing butterflies and the mysterious Big-Headed Stick Insects. In Kenting, the night is alive.

When you come to Kenting you must get to know the sea! Pay a visit to an enticingly peaceful fishing village: Houwan Community. The wind and waves in the bay here are reliable and the water is safe, making it an ideal location for canoeing or SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) activities.

The Hengchun Peninsula is blessed with abundant sunshine, and residents on the west-coast side make good use of the natural coral reef rock terrain to harvest sea salt and then use the bittern to produce tofu. At the Houwan Community you can join residents in making nigari (sea salt extract) tofu, experiencing the lifestyle of generations of previous Houwan residents up close.

- Scenic Highlights -
▲ Kenting National Forest Recreation Area
The uplifted coral reefs in the Kenting National Forest Recreation Area, continually driven upward by plate movement, are a sight rarely seen around the globe. This was originally a marine garden where countless stony corals, calcareous algae, foraminifera, and all kinds of shells gathered. Plate movement that began 500,000 years ago turned it into an uplifted coral reef ecosystem visible on land. It has a rich ecology, with a monsoon rainforest and limestone terrain.

▲ Sheding Community
The Sheding Community actively promotes ecological conservation, protecting its rich natural resources, with such rarities as bioluminescent fungi, Golden Birdwing butterflies, Big-Headed Stick Insects, etc. No matter whether it is plants, animals, geology, cultural heritage, or fascinating landscapes, there are superlatives everywhere here, making it well worth a visit!

▲ Houwan Community
The Houwan Community is located on the west-coast side of Kenting National Park, close to the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium. Among its attractions are a half-moon-shaped natural cape bay and an abundance of reef rock and intertidal creatures, making this is an extremely pleasant scenic spot. The sea here is calm and safe, suitable for watersports such as snorkeling and use of unpowered watercraft. Even if you’re trying out canoe or SUP activities for the very first time, this is a place that makes it easy to get started.
