Penghu is suitable for tourist season

Penghu is the peak tourist season from April to September every year.Fireworks FestivalThis is the beginning of Penghu's popular tourism. During this period, the temperature is above 30 degrees during the day and around 25 degrees at night, which is quite suitable for outdoor water activities. Although October to March is the off-season for tourism, the temperature during the day is comfortable, there are fewer crowds, and it is not easy to encounter rainy days. As long as you pay attention to the low temperature and strong wind at night, and be prepared to keep warm, you can still enjoy Penghu.

Traffic between Taiwan main island and Penghu

There are two main modes of transportation from the main island of Taiwan to Penghu, by air or by boat. The following two routes are introduced for you:

Flying machine

There are currently 5 airports in Taiwan that fly to Magong City, Penghu, including Taipei Songshan Airport, Taichung Ching Chuan Kang Airport, Chiayi Water Airport, Tainan Airport, and Kaohsiung Xiaogang Airport. The flight is fast and comfortable, and it takes less than 60 minutes to arrive. Avoid the possible dizziness of riding the wind and waves, and enjoy Taiwan's charming sea view from a high altitude. It is a good choice if the budget is relatively generous. For detailed flight information, please refer toPenghu Airport Official Website.

Cruise

If the budget is tight, it is quite convenient to go there by boat.Taiwan Island currently has flights from Budai Port in Chiayi and Anping Port in Tainan to Magong, Penghu. The boat journey is about 75-90 minutes, and the disembarkation point in Penghu is near the urban area, so the traffic is more convenient. However, if you go in winter, some shipping companies It will be suspended due to the northeast monsoon, remember to board before departureBudai Port Passenger Service Center,Eastern Union ShippingOfficial website for the latest news.

Penghu Tourist Transportation

Generally, there are four ways for people to travel to Penghu: public transportation, renting a car, renting a locomotive, or chartering a car. The following is an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the four transportation methods in Penghu, and you can choose according to your needs:

car

Renting a car in Penghu is very suitable for traveling throughout the year. You can turn on the air conditioner or heater in a comfortable car, and it is very convenient whether you want to go to the North Ring Road or the South Ring Road.However, parking in Magong City is not easy, and illegal parking bills are strict. If you only play in the city, you can rent a motorcycle. However, if you want to try Penghu to drive around the island comfortably, renting a car in Penghu is still the most recommended way.

locomotive

Renting a locomotive in Penghu should be the first choice of many people. It is highly mobile and cheap. The price of renting a locomotive in Penghu is about $250-$700 a day (electric cars or gasoline cars are available), and parking in urban areas is much more convenient than cars.But of course, the big sun in summer and the strong wind in winter in Penghu will inevitably affect the comfort of riding a motorcycle.

chartered car

The local car charter method in Penghu is quite different from that in Taiwan. The main reason is that the car charter company will have a predetermined sightseeing tour route, and tourists can choose the route they are interested in instead of flexibly adjusting or customizing the route according to the needs of tourists. , so it is more inconvenient for passengers who want to travel freely.But if it is the first time to Penghu, and a group of people are supporting the old and the young, it is a convenient choice for someone to help plan the itinerary and drive.

mass transit

Because Penghu public transportation is mainly designed for local people, there are few shifts and routes, and it is not oriented to the needs of tourists. Even the location of the bus station is a long way from the scenic spot, so although it can save a lot of transportation costs, However, the commuting time will be very long, and it is the least recommended way to travel to Penghu.

Penghu Fireworks Festival

Penghu Travel Guide

The Penghu Fireworks Festival can be said to be one of the most popular tourist festivals in Taiwan. Even if you have never been to Penghu, you must have heard of the name of the Fireworks Festival.

The photos are super dreamy.This location is the same as Moses' Sea, you need to watch the tide to meet the most beautiful moment. Usually, it is recommended that the most beautiful two hours before and after high tide is because the stones next to the dry tide will be exposed, and the water level is too high when the tide is high. Flooding on the trail will increase the danger, but it should be noted that the road here is very narrow and slippery, so be careful when bringing children.

Chixi Rock Waterfall
