How to Get ThereChoose a transportation method based on your departure location.
Lion Head Mountain Hiking Trail
The“Lion Head Mountain Park”is situated on a 70-meter altitude Jinshan cape. Transformed from an early military coast guard restricted zone to the tourist destination today, the old barracks, bunker, fort and natural habitat was preserved. It is a forest walk with a good view and ocean on three sides. The Lion Head Mountain ringed walkway is cool with a gentle rise and trees to either side. It is fit for family outings, passing the adorable lucky trail (Maitreya figure) and walking further in for the beautiful “Couple Rock” story and see the “Candle Stick Rocks” shaped like candle holders. One can also visit the mystery bay of the north coast and appreciate Tofu Rock and sand rock remains on the marine beach. The best part about visiting Lion Head Mountain is the chance to see all three “Golden Coast Wonders” at once, the Candle Stick Rock, sulfuric fire fishing and moonlight on water.
Art Bronze Sculpture of Mackay
The "Art Bronze Sculpture of Mackay" is located at the rear side of Tamsui Post Office on the riverside, the place where Priest Mackay arrived in Taiwan. The bronze sculpture demonstrates the arrival of Mackay. Dr. Mackay knelt on the ground praying with a Bible in his hand, and next to him is the boat he travelled in. Starting from the art sculpture situated at Mackay's arrival point, there are places to visit, such as the Tamsui Church nearby where Dr. Mackay stayed and preached and the Hobe Mackay Hospital that is adjacent to the church. Beside it is the Oxford College founded by Dr. Mackay which is located inside the campus of Aletheia University and provides education to single and married women. The Girl's School is located inside the campus of Tamkang Senior High School, where Mackay's tomb is also located.
