Day 1 Traffic Updates
- Traffic Route Mysterious CoastThe Mysterious Coast is one of the newest hot scenic spots hidden at the Shuiwei Fishing Port. Climbing up the wooden stairs by the Fishing Port, visitors would be immediately welcomed by an infinite horizon of the sea and a terrain of marine abrasion. Following the light beamed through the cave, visitors would arrive at the secret paradise. The wide and open sights here seem to be so different from that of the Shuiwei Fishing Port. As seawater splashed on the jagged rocks of surrealistic shapes, visitors would be immersed in the ocean’s grandeur up close and personal. Turning around, visitors would abruptly realize that the cave they just came through was actually a gigantic rock – its myriad layers would have the visitors wonder over Mother Nature’s magical work!
- Traffic Route Lion Head Mountain Hiking TrailThe“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.

- Traffic Route Old Jinshan AirfieldThe origin of the “Old Jinshan Airfield” can be traced back when a small-scale military airport was built here during the period of Japanese rule. Unfortunately, a plane crash took place soon after the airport was in operation, making it an abolished airport even before it was officially opened. Today, the Airfield ruins still preserve three “stone-made airport rollers” used back when the airport grounds was being paved. Most of the area where the airport once resided has been turned into farmlands (situated within the Chongguang Liugu Flower Farming Area), which is one of the largest suppliers of rhododendrons in Taiwan. The count of annual rhododendron production can reach over several millions and most of the rhododendrons found in Yangmingshan are all transplanted and supplied from here.
