Very disappointing in Kenting area as the main beach has no sitting areas, toilets not working, no vendors near the beach, no swimming aloud, no where to have a cold drink, area is not looked after and maintained for tourists.
No maps in English or brochures.Unable to get information about where the netting beaches were/are! Hire a scooter as this seems to be the only and best way to see the area.
Lots of cheap buses made it easy to visit South Bay and Hengchun to add variety to the holiday.A bit annoying that you were not allowed into the water unless you hired a body board or surf board
Kenting is great for beaches, night market, and sashimi by the dwarf. Night market food is so-so compared to Taipei but still you will find your favorite Taiwanese dishes.
Scooter is so much fun and they let you use it even if you don't have a driver's license! Make sure to get a nice massage and enjoy the entertainment on Kenting Street. It gets very loud at night. PRetty much no need to rent the schooter past 8pm because they ask you for rate that allows you to keep overnight vs. until 8pm. By 8, everything is dark anyway, shouldn't be driving. I visited in October.
Beautiful town where the people are nice and kind. However, it has started to become more touristy and people seem not as warm as they were 2 years ago when I visited.
The sights are still definitely worth coming for.
there has some natural items for sightseeing which is suited for family with kids too. for the adults there are also have some beaches and sun activities.
Kenting is really filled with alot of activities and attractions. We went on horseback riding, ATV, go-kart and we could ride a scooter there as well.
Other than that the beaches there have really awesome views. We really had alot of fun there.
The beach is ok overall, no paradise found here but perfect for a weekend trip. The main street in Kenting gets full at nights and becomes annoying.
a small town with beaches... but the beach tends to be rocky and the sand is not fine at all... therefore dont expect a white sandy rockless beach.
.. dont go during summer, its super hot there. overall its another good tourist destination to visit.
A wonderful place to enjoy the sun and ocean. Great snorkeling and water sports. Beautiful mountains and nature walks as well as nightlife.
nothing much to see around Kenting Street except water sports, but the National Park and Hengchun Town is pretty nice for sightseeing
It has good quality offering to customers, local and foreigners in many kind of food and shopping experience without big brand.
Dangerous on road, there is not walking path. You can ride motorbike without a license, it was fun though, but behave yourself.
It's got almost everything for a nature lover. Forested hills and stunning beaches. Great street food and exciting nightlife.
Kending is a great place to visit, the beaches are awesome. You have to make sure that you pick a hotel that is comfortable.
If your looking for a longer stay your better to go with a hotel that would give you a discount. Keep in mind the off and on seasons and that the rates will be half as much during monday-thursday, otherwise be prepared to pay double what you originally paid on a weekday. Best not to bother with any of the western restaurants in the city as they are basically overpriced and overrated as well. If you want western food go somewhere western, not in southern taiwan. lol. That being said the night market food is really good and its an experience to just go out and mingle. Night market recommendations: Deep fried oreos, candied potatoes, there is just a bunch of stuff that you should try. Another great experience is renting electric bicycles and taking a trip up the coast after the sun goes down as otherwise you will be burnt like mcdonalds fries that are left in the burner and forgotten about due to the unfair minimum wage the teen is making. Kending is great, just don't expect it to be orlando or that its going to cater to your western taste buds always. The howard is a great hotel tho with a buffet breakfast, and thats perfect considering there are not a whole lot of options in the morning. Also, be prepared that restaurants will be closed and won't open until after 530 for supper, so you have 7/11 or you'll starve. Also it is a "night" market so that won't open till after six. Enjoy!
there is not much to see unless you do water sports, and the sun is so strong that it could hurt your skin and even scalp.
.. For the similar environment and activities, I would prefer Bali much more - more enjoyable weather, better surfing experience and better quality of food
It will be so much better and easier if you ride a scooter or drive (probably not during the season as too many people).
If you go farther down, passing the southernmost point of Taiwan, and continue the route to the east, it is way too gorgeous.
Kenting is a place filled with beautiful beaches, sun and sea. The sea sports are fun. The seafood is fresh and yummy.
I enjoyed shopping along Kenting Street. Will definitely go back again.
Enjoy different beautiful sceneries in kenting. A great place to come in every season to enjoy its different beauty.
Kenting is a good place to come for relaxation. But do remember to apply sun block before getting down to the beach!
You can go Kending for relax like sunshine, diving, swimming, but of course there is little nightlifes in Kending.
But the nature beauty is so good. There are lots of location you can go, two major beach called Baisha and Nanwan, one good park caled Ebiluan and an old town Hengchun. All of them deserves a good rank.
Great place to go and relax. Kenting also gives you the opportunity to go out and seek adventure should you wish.
The beaches are great, the park has many hiking opportunities if you are prepared, and many of the local hotels and B&B's offer a relatively inexpensive place to stay. Try the Kenting Main Street for the hawker food, venture into Hengchun for a mango shaved ice, or try one of the local places for seafood.
Recommend arriving Thur-Sun (weekend need to book in advance) to take advantage of all the sights in Kenting.
In addition to the national park, Chia Le Sui is a must-see for all the bizarre rock formations. The free park next to the National Park is in my opinion even more worthwhile than the national park itself.
Should be added more transportation or taxi better to rent a car that you can drive, it's more convenient
Good weather and beautiful scenery. Good night market like Taipei. But transportation is not convenient.
Must rental a car and driving it yourself to explore Kenting everythings. Must visit Kenting night markets
Is a lovely city and the beach are so beautiful and natural. The people are friendly and food are goods.
Night market and riding electric scooter was so much fun! Try Alex's reggae bar and street pizza nearby.
Do try 'yi ping ru wei', the food is delicious. Do rent a scooter to explore the area, it is beautiful.
NICE PLACE FOR BOTH RELAXATION AND FUN. HAVE FUN DOING WATER SPORTS AND JEEP ADVENTURE IN THE WINTER.
SEVERAL SIGHTSEE PLACES WITH NICE VIEW OF THE SEA AND SOME ROCK FORMATION.
