Exkursionen in PengHu

Experience the splendid coastal beauty, culture and history of Penghu during this memorable, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Tongliang Great Banyan

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Tongliang Great Banyan. This sacred, massive banyan tree is more than 200 years old, and forms a canopy over the courtyard of Bao'an Temple in Tongliang Village, at the western tip of Baisha Island. The main trunk of the tree is not very impressive, but its aerial roots form a miniature forest of subsidiary trunks that covers an area of more than 789 square yards (660 square meters).


Penghu Great Bridge and Dayi Temple

Next, re-board your coach and cross the Penghu Great Bridge (Trans-Ocean Bridge), which spans the Houmen (Roaring Gate) Channel, and links the islands of Baisha and Xiyu. At approximately 8,182 feet (about 2,494 meters) in length, it is the first sea-crossing bridge in the Far East, and offers panoramic ocean vistas. After crossing the bridge, head to the Dayi Temple, a large undersea temple built of big coral rocks. Its basement houses precious whale bones, and specimens of various fishes and shells.


Erkan Historical House and Fruit Leaf Columnar Basalt

Your tour continues with a visit to the Erkan Historical House, an old, traditional-style house. Owned by the Chen clan, this large, exquisitely-crafted family home with many wings features relief carvings, windows, doors, and eaves in the classic southern Fujian style. Following your guided tour, a photo stop is made at the Fruit Leaf Columnar Basalt, a majestic basalt cliff. After lunch at a local restaurant, proceed to Makung City for a visit to Zhongyang Old Street, the first street of Penghu.


Zhongyang Old Street, Four-Eye Well and Tianhou Temple

Located beside the Tianhou Temple, this street features old-style buildings. Take a guided stroll, browse the shops for gifts and souvenirs, and pass by the Central Hotel, the first hotel in Penghu. A visit is then made to the Four-Eye Well, built during the mid-Ming Dynasty over 400 years ago. Your last stop is at the Penghu Queen of Heaven Temple (Tianhou Temple). This architectural gem, built in 1592, is Taiwan's oldest and finest temple. Inside, marvel at prized Ching-era art, sculptures and other relics. Afterward, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, at times over uneven surfaces and ladders, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least four years old to participate on this tour.

Shihli Beach

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Shihli Beach, a stretch of wind-blown sand and dunes more than 0.6 miles (one kilometre) in length. With its calm, blue waters, this the finest swimming beach on the main island of Penghu. The beach here is comprised of fine grains of coral and seashell, making it the perfect place for walking in the sand. After a relaxing visit here, re-board your coach and head to Fogguei Village.


Fongguei Village

Fongguei Village is situated at the end of the Fongguei Peninsula, a long, narrow sea-curved gutter. The bottom of the gutter has been formed as a sea-eroded arch. At the top of the sea-eroded arch, a water column flows into a small pit. When the tides are in, the water flows into the sea-curved gutter. The air of the cave is compressed by the sea water, and produces the sound of tidal wave similar to that of a drum. After taking in lovely ocean vistas and listening to the sound of the sea waves, re-board your coach and proceed to Makung City for a visit to Zhongyang Old Street, the first street of Penghu.
