Hengchun

Located on the southern tip of the eponymous peninsula, Hengchun serves as the entry point to Kenting National Park, often attracting more travelers than locals with its tropical beach resorts and bustling night markets.

There's still lots to do: stroll around Longpan Park, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Kenting National Park, and contemplate the long history of Hengchun Shih Pai Park (Houtungshan Historical Park).
