Story of Yingge Stone
Yingge (literally “parrot” in Chinese) received its name because of a rock resembling a parrot in the Zhenbei Mountain Range. Yingge Stone is also known as Parrot Stone. It is located behind Zhongzhen Road and Chenggong Road in Yingge Township. When Koxinga’s troops advanced southward, they were attacked by a giant bird in Yingge. The troops bombarded the bird in fury. The bird fell on the ground and became the now Yingge Stone. Legend has it that fossils and treasures left behind by Japanese soldiers were found in the Yingge Stone Cave.

International Armistice Peace Memorial Park
Tourism and Travel Department, New Taipei City Goverment recognizes the cultural and historical importance of this site, and proceeded to implement the "International Armistice Peace Memorial Park Developmental Program", in the hope that through improving the on-site facilities, detailing the history of the camp on explanatory signs, and introducing a well constructed memorial that is culturally significant, the site that was once a WWII POW camp can become integrated into Taiwan's tourism experience, and transform into a new unique landmark.References: Onsite interview, Academia Sinica Digital Archaeology Website, Taipei e-Campus e-Learning Website
Baisha Bay--which translates as "White Sand Bay"-- is one of the better known beaches along the coast. The bay is located between Linshan Cape to the south and Fugui Cape to the north. These rocky promontories are the result of volcanic activity from the Datuen Range that sent lava flowing directly into the sea some 800,000 years ago.
