Kenting national park with a 2 year old?

I have 3 questions:

1. Is it ok to take a 2 year old child in a stroller/push chair to Kenting National Park? Or is it too much hard work?

2. What's the weather like in February?

3. If we stay in Pingtung, is one full day enough in the park? Or should we allow 2 full days?

1) Kenting is a big place so it depends on which attractions you are heading to. Most areas around the coastline are accessible for strollers, though some trails may have steps.

2) The average temperature is 21 degrees on February. The weather is usually clear but some may find it too cold for marine activity.

3) if you are visiting Kenting it's unlikely you'll stay in Pingtung city. You'll stay in or near Kenting. You can spend one day or one week there depending on which places you want to go. If you use public transportation and want to take a good look of the park one day may be a little short.

Thanks, Poorjar!

As we have a 2 year old, we won't be able to hire scooters. Not sure if my husband will want to hire a car as we might get lost all the time. Is an alternative to hire a taxi for the day and get it to drop us off at each site and wait for us?

For trails that have steps, is it not too many steps, so it is ok for one of us to carry the child and the other one carry the stroller up the steps. If there are lots of steps on certain trails, i suppose it will be too tiring to keep carrying the child?

What would you say are the must see places and what do you think would be a good itinerary for 2 or 3 days?
