Once you arrived at this southern tip of country, you will feel the atmosphere is filled with tropical theme. During the day, you can rent a electronic motor bike to visit around the park. During the night, you can walk around the night market for some local cousins or spend a night at bar for some drinks.

The park is beautiful and very easy to walk through. There are a series of paths to stroll along and enjoy the nature around you. There are a couple of small caves to explore and the hanging banyan trees are stunning. I highly recommend spending a few hours discovering this park.

Basically, avoid Chinese New Year (unless you like crowded places!). Cycling on the busy roads wasn't very pleasant and we didn't manage to get a taxi the whole time we were there. Also, make sure that you have an International Drivers Permit because you need a vehicle to see the good bits of the park.

The national park is gorgeous with rocky ocean views of the crashing waves. Be prepared to very strong winds and wear sunglasses for eye protection from the dust. The mountains and ocean views are worth it! Check out Longpan park.

We booked a taxi for a whole day excursion of the Kenting area from Kaoshiung. After leaving Kaoshiung, we travelled along Highway 26 heading south towards the Kenting Forest Recreation Area. Taking almost 1 hour, 45 minutes to reach, the forest park was a bit of a disappointment as some exhibits were in need of maintenance. Nonetheless, it was worth... More

Big wind, windy place, relaxed people, rent an electric scooter. Pretty fun for 2 days or so. The water is OK, the beach is OK. It's super windy place. The park near the sign showing the farthest south location (I think it is called Goose Park or Swan Park, I can't remember), that has some nice hills and we had... More

It's a not a difficult climb from the main entrance. Did not see much animals, but spotted small crab that signage has warned vehicles about. View from the peak is great!

Its a big park and host a great variety of flora and fauna if one has the luxury of time to take the challenge!

The Kenting National Park offers spectacular sceneries of sunshine, scenic mountains and beaches, despite its inexpensive entrance fees. Some interesting landmarks include the Eluanbi light house, 冤家路, 非非洞 and many others. To add to the hype, the National Park was one of the filming sites for the hit Taiwanese movie Cape No. 7, and famed Director Ang Lee’s Life of... More

Kenting National Park encompasses a very large area from just north of Checheng town on route 26 all the way south to Eluanpi Lighthouse at the southern tip of Taiwan and then continues up the east coast, still on route 26 for another 30K. The park includes some of the best scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, sailing, fishing and white and... More
