The palm tree-lined streets of Pingtung city give the place a special charm, perfectly fitting given the area’s beautiful landscape and comfortable weather. The most common and smartest way to travel into Pingtung is by rail, arriving at Pingtung Railway Station
and taking a pick of one of the many hotels and even waterfront resorts that are within a very short reach of the station.
Pingtung city is located in Pingtung County, which sees a large number of visitors every year since it is the gateway to Kenting National Park, Taiwan’s most famous national park. Travelers who are in this part of town specifically to explore the national park will most certainly have camping, beach combing, and hiking as the main events of their itinerary, but the city offers a nice change for those looking to take part in the usual neon lights and night markets that are hallmarks of most cities in Taiwan. Within the Pingtung city limits, a visit to the Dapeng Bay Scenic Area
should not be missed. The area is ideally located near Dapeng Bay, which has seen a lot of attention and investment from the tourism board and is therefore an ideal destination for tourists looking to experience some of the fresh air and outdoor activities available in this region without going all the way to Kenting National Park.
