Kaomei Wetland, Taichung

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
An elevated boardwalk snaking through a biodiverse landscape, Kaomei Wetland provides a protected sanctuary for wildlife and plant life. Established in 2005, the wetlands span 300 ha (741.3 ac) of land, consisting of a vast plain of marshy terrain scattered with wind turbines. Stroll the seemingly never-ending length of boardwalk, looking out for tiny crabs and birds in the surrounding watery reeds. Try to time your visit to coincide with sunset, which offers particularly spectacular views across the shimmering expanse.

  • 假日來人潮沒有很多,附近的停車場都有位置可以停車,停車費用為50元。下午來比較漂亮,有夕陽會比較美。 
  • 好美的落日,不枉我們開車開了一個多小時來,真的很美;就醬坐在岸邊看著太陽下山,有一個平靜的幸福;因為在海邊真的很冷,風又大,大家來要記得保暖喔 
  • 重新規劃過的高美濕地,臨近停車點太少,最好是平日去,避開假日人潮. 冬天去注意保暖,現場風勢非常大,且若無陽光體感溫度會非常寒冷

  • Is the best wetlands for couples and travelers. The best part is the sunset with the reflection on the water surface. The wind turbines stand near the offshore orderly, shining under the moonlight. Strongly recommend!
  • Good place to bring your kids along. My kids have fun watching wetland low tide creatures coming out. Really a eye opener for city children. They saw clams, skipper, crabs, birds and worms. remember to bring slippers if you want to slip your legs into the water at the end of walk board.
  • A perfect way to end the day. Watch crabs as you walk along the boardwalk through the wetlands, dip your feet in the water at the end of the walk and watch the sunset, then enjoy the street food once you get back to the shore. Only drawback is there's tons of people, and traffic can be a bit slow to get in and out.
  • Amazing Sunset You Will Never Forget It is the best place to see the most beautiful sunset in the west of Taiwan. Then you can experience the unique wetland environment, feeling the sands and the seawater and watching the special animals living in the wetland.
  • Nice place to watch sunset but need to walk carefully when you draw back in night. If you are lucky enough,you can see the crab and mudskipper in the wetland,remember please just watch it, do not bring them home.
