Thread: Cycle in Taiwan photo trip

    Default Cycle in Taiwan photo trip

    Got a emailer from a friend in The Taiwan Toursim authority.
    They're organising this cycle in Taiwan scenic trip.
    Personally, I have done 2 of the tracks before at 淡水 and 七星潭, 花蓮.
    Both bike tracks are very nicely paved with beautiful scenic landscape along the way.

    淡水 (Dan Shui)has a long stretch of the cycle trek running through natural mangrove forest along side the 淡水 river and ends at 愚人碼頭 (Yu ren Jetty aka Stupid man Jetty). 愚人碼頭 is a coastal jetty area with lotsa F&B and the beautiful 愚人碼頭 bridge which is a great spot for night shoot.

    七星潭, 花蓮 (Seven Star Coast in HuaLien) is one of the most scenic coastal area in the Eastern part of Taiwan. This is a coastal track where you will ride alongside the 蘇奧公路 (Su Ao Highway)。You can see the fisherman at work from this part where they set up the equivalent of Kelong in the sea near the coast to harvest Tuna & such. The cliffs are very beautiful there and is a nice & cooling trip if you take it.

    According to my friend, they are giving away free air tickets if you can collectively form a team of more than 10 person to go for this trip. I am not sure what's the arrangement though. You probably can get more info from the website or call the Taiwan Visitor Centre in Singapore for more details. Wiould have gone if not because I have used up all my leave this year.

    So to get free air tickets we have to sign up in a group of ten? When would be a good time to cycle around Taiwan? And what about our luggage and cameras? Do we have to fit everything into a backpack and carry it as we cycle? Or will the bicycles be fitted with special attachments to carry luggage and backpacks?
