Click here if you would like to read an overview of my 2 weeks vacation in Southern Taiwan.
We were contemplating between Green Island, Kenting, or Xiaoliuqiu. I decided to go Kenting because Green Island is too far and I read online that diving in Kenting is awesome. But i was wrong! Diving in Xiaoliuqiu is so much better and I am so glad that i eventually still manage to find time to go there.
But Kenting has it's own beauty too. We took a shared taxi from Kaohsiung to Kenting which cost about SGD$18 both ways. I was told that it's only slightly more expensive than bus, and so much more convenient.
We stayed at 彩虹波浪 Rainbow Wave 衝浪背包旅店, pretty decent hostel that cost about SGD$34 for two nights. Good location, good breakfast. The rooms could be cleaner though.
We rented a motorbike for SGD$34 for 1.5 days. It was really nice touring around Kenting.
Places we went on our first day:
We wanted to go Guanshan to see sunset, but because my 2nd dive took longer than expected, we couldn’t make it in time. Thankfully I still manage to see a very nice sunset from my dive site.
Here are some of the food stalls that we were recommended:
