“Best entertainment you can get for USD 50cents!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

For a mere NT15 (about 50cents USD), the 5 minutes ferry ride will take you to QiJing Island, where you can spend an afternoon walking the area, as well as visiting the many food stalls.

Once you are onboard, walk up stairs and go to the rear of the boat. Quickly snap a few pictures with friends and family as the boat ride is up before you know.

It is well worth the NT15. Highly recommended.

“Rent a bike & enjoy nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Go to Cijin from Gushan (Kaoshiung), only take 10 minutes. As you arrived at Cijin, you can take a rickshaw trip for NTD 200/ 1 round (15 minutes), rent a bike (NTD 100 for unlimited time), or a tandem 4-cycle (available for 4 persons).
I recommend you to rent a bike, so you can explore the adjacent area easily (and faster than walking). You'll find food stalls all along the way from ferry pier to the other side of the beach. Nice atmosphere, worth visit.

“Fun day trip”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

You can take your scooter/ bicycle on the ferry for a quick 5-10min ride across to the Cijin island. Over there, theres a street with lots of snacks/ seafood restaurant if you're into snacking/ a good seafood feast. Otherwise, the beach is pretty nice too.
If you're in for some exercise, you can cycle to the lighthouse or windmill park for some great views. On a good day, the sunset is breathtaking (:

“View of the river”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

We can view the river and downtown from the short ferry ride. Passengers on foot go upstairs and those on bikes go downstairs. The ferry takes us to Qijing Island, a touristy island, with roadside stalls, colorful rental bikes, and a beach front area.

“Fun Fun Fun for cheap price”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

The Ferry ride is not designed as an attration, but a mode of transportation between penisula islands. Qijing the destination is very busy and fun with seafood restaurants and street games.
Although crowed, it is a very safe and family friendly area to visit. All you need is to pratice common sense tourist security measures. Even for an adult, make sure you play at one of the many street carnival games for fun.
