(480+ reviews on the web)
National Park
The oldest park of its kind in the country, Kenting National Park encompasses the southern tip of Taiwan and features mountains, lush vegetation, and rugged coastal stretches. Pay a visit to this popular national park to explore the wild extremes of the Hengchun Peninsula, where rocky cliffs meat the churning waves. Use the network of paths and trails to view the jungle and its wildlife, including a population of native monkeys. Keep in mind that the park also offers a number of sandy beaches where you can kick back and admire ocean views. Try hitting the waves, or go snorkeling to view the park's colorful offshore coral. Renting a bike or a scooter makes for an efficient way to sightsee around the park, and also helps to reduce fatigue in the tropical climate. A visit to Kenting National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pingtung vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • 這裡空氣新鮮 有些路段也有樹蔭遮蔽 學齡前的孩子走起來也沒問題 還有石洞景色難得ㄧ見 園內樹種很多 值得ㄧ遊 唯美中不足的是園內幫忙整理花圃的阿桑們 在抽菸 (森林國家公園內怎麼可以抽菸呢?)  more »
  • 公園裡有幽靜的綠色步道有椰子樹.茄冬.大葉欖仁等樹木在旁遮陰,清新的空氣及微風,適宜的溫度,爽朗的晴天,有溫室的蝴蝶蘭.火鶴.麒麟花可欣賞,戶外有金露花等,還有觀海樓可遠眺台灣的尾巴~鵝鑾鼻燈塔.東邊的太平洋.西邊的台灣海峽,鐘乳石的仙洞,真是美不勝收.  more »
  • He must first go to the visitor center for information and the Park plan, then we can decide what we will see according to its possibilities but everything is interesting if you walk a little and the distances are not great. With a little luck you approach the formosanus since IE monkeys

  • The southern tip of Taiwan is rather uneventful. After walking up and around through the bush you end up at a small platform looking at the ocean. We were expecting to be higher up, but were maybe only 8 - 10 meters above sea level. Sharp coral all along the coast prevents you from approaching the water (as do fences) so after arriving at the lookout and then snapping a photo of the concrete marker the government put there, there's nothing to do but go back. There's a park you can pay 60ntd to enter, but it's very similar in impressiveness. I'd recommend skipping these scenic spots and just spend more time at the local beaches and mountain hikes.
  • It's a real beautiful area. The beaches and sights are all wonderful. There are all types of accommodation options too. Food choices are plentiful. Amazing place for a holiday.
  • Beautiful park, need to set aside a day to explore more next trip.
  • Jewel of Taiwan, a natural paradise for taking in the diverse flora of Southern Taiwan. If you are familiar with Tolkie' work, you can feel like you are in Fangorn forest and deeper in even Mirkwood :). a must see for anyone who braves the long road down to Kenting. Just make sure you go early and before 3pm latest, there are no lights on the roads if you are there beyond sunset, it can be tricky. Also make sure not to go after heavy rains as most spectacular caves might be possibly closed due to flooding.
  • Great views, I would recommend to get there early in the morning to avoid crowds and heat. There is a little walk, a great place to take pictures.
