It was a exciting experience exploring around Kenting from the sandy white beaches to the astonishing view at the top of the cape located at the most southern tip of Taiwan. Enjoy the view!

And technically…. In post processing, no other kind of post-processing technique applied other than using the landscape picture style in Canon DPP. They are later stitched together using PTGui.
Both panoramas are taken hand-held using Canon 5D MKII, and a Canon EF 17-40 f/4L and in stitching later on, each of the panorama produces a total resolution of about 60 megapixels. They are then downsized to 4000px at the widest side to accommodate for web viewing.
After a night stay in Kaoshiong on the day of arrival in Taiwan, we headed further south to Kenting National Park in the next morning.
Getting there, good to know.
It is good to know on how the Taiwanese name their highways. Roads that are connecting west to the east would be even numbered. For north-south connection, one shall follow odd numbered highway.
So, if you are coming from Kaoshiong, you will need to head south east to get to the most southern tip of Taiwan.
A quick google would show us the exact route that we need to take to get there. (Click here or the map above for the Google map link). We traveled through the highway #88 followed by highway #1 (See pink circle on map). The whole journey would take you about 2 hours.
Also, in the map above, the red circle shows where the Taiwan High Speed Rail station is located. You may take bus from the HSR Station as well if you do not plan to drive.
Kenting is now accessible via the newly built HSR, or High Speed Rail which connects Taipei with Zuoying, Kaohsiung. The total travel time from Taipei to Kaohsiung via HSR is approximately 90 mins. After arrival in Zuoying, exit the station and head outside where there is a bus stop. Line 88 bus to Kenting operates 24 hours/day, so getting back to the HSR on time is no problem.
Let’s start with a video instead. Let the video do the talking and introduction!
Foods there are pretty good I must say. Having ordered the minced beef rice, steamboat and eggs as shown above costs us about RM 35. Definitely will visit this place again in the future. I don’t do too much of food blogging. So, let’s leave it to the expert here.
