Taiwan Trip Day 3 - Qijing or Cijin Island - Walking around the island

PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.


The ferry took only about 5 mins to reach Cijin Island from Kaoshiung. The ferry has frequent services between the two islands. I think is about every 5 to 10 mins.

On arrival we could see some beautiful colonial building which is now the port for Cijin Island. There's a tourist office on the left in the above photo. You can collect a map or any information about the island from this office.


We could see a lot of bicycles for rental. Some bicycles are built for four. Looked like a lot of fun. Wish my two sons were with me then we could rent the bikes for four.

If you do not want to cycle, you can ride on the trishaws or cabs. But we choose to just walked around the town. Only half of this island are mainly for tourists, etc while the other half are mainly residential buildings.



There's a chinese temple on the island too.





Lots of seafood stalls and restaurants on this island too.

Very true about the bikes. Best to come in a group. Hubby and me too old and too tired for any more leg power hahaha. If my two sons had come along we can take turns to pedal.
