Chung Cheng Park | Yehliu Geopark

Head to Keelung, Taiwan's second biggest port city, and visit its landmark statue, the smiling Goddess of Mercy which is tucked away in Chung Cheng Park. At 22.5 m (74 ft) high, this statue can also be seen from the city harbor where you will stop to take in beautiful views of the sea and surrounding mountains. Also head to Yehliu Park, a geological wonder on Taiwan's northern coast which boasts odd hoodoo rock formations including the well-known Queen's Head.

Details

8:00 a.m. Taipei downtown hotel pickup

9:00 a.m. Head out to Keelung (Jilong) northeast of Taipei, one of Taiwan's international seaports. There you will visit Chung Cheng Park (Zhongzheng Park, 基隆中正公园) to admire the massive 22.5 m (74 ft) high white statue of the Goddess of Mercy, also known as Guan-yin, the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia. A stairway inside this landmark statue leads to the top, from where you can take in beautiful views of the city and harbor.

Then, stop at the mountain-flanked harbor where you can behold beautiful views of the sea, the port and the Goddess of Mercy, before heading to Yehliu Park (Yeliu Park, 野柳地质公园). This unique stretch of coast is dotted with unusual hoodoo stone formations. Use your imagination and have a go at naming the odd mushroom-like rocks based on their shape and don't miss the Queen's Head, the most famous of them all.

12:30 a.m. Return to hotel
