Kenting and Chuanfanshih in Taiwan

Yes, you write it kenDing, but you pronounce kenTing.

(and yeah, it was super windy)

So the beach is super small with opaque grey water.
There are some bitting red ants in the sand (they bit me).

The beach isn’t clean, nobody here seems to care about ecology.

Kenting-Chuanfanshih at 4-5km de Kenting(-Kenting).

So sum up: the place is beautiful but clearly overrated : it’s far too long to come there by bus and Kenting Village is clearly minuscule (I just don’t want to image how crowded it must be in summer).

Kenting Village and Houses

Kenting, is a trully beautiful place, but incredibly minuscule!
However, it’s architecturally interesting.

Kenting Village, it’s just ONE small street (without sidewalk, because Taiwan) and… that’s pretty much it.

Prices were higher than the rest of Taiwan, but it’s a touristical place, so I guess it’s “normal”.

No need to take 50 pictures of the shops, they are all selling exactly the same things!

Kenting Streets Taiwan
So after more than 6 hours from Taichung, you arrive Kenting, whih it’s in a one street place with 15 restaurants (half are Thai), 20 shops that sell exactly the same stuff, and arround 30 small hotels, that’s it.

The Night Market is exactly the same as what happen during the day: it’s only the shops that are stil open at night!

Beautiful but weirdly too small.

See Kenting Beach.
Soon: Kenting-Chuanfanshih.

Kenting Beach Taiwan

Kenting, is located at the south end of Taiwan.

Kenting, is the pride of Taiwan. Everyone here talk about it as if it were the only beach of the world.
It, sort of is, as the shore is left abandoned and dirty all arround Taiwan (I know, Taiwan is an island!).

So if you want to find a not too ugly beach, you have to go to Kenting at the south, or at the north end.
Silly, isn’t it?

(There’s Hualien, too, but it’s full of earthquakes).

Landing in Taipei !

Finally arriving in Taïwan after 13H30 flying !

I had to arrive 3H before departure in Paris, but as Paris is not my hometown, I had to take the train in Lyon to arrive on time at the airport.

The travel lasted around 20 hours! And Yes, it was exhausting!
