Full description
Meet your tour guide and driver in the morning for your North Coast Tour. First stop at Chung Cheng Park, the ubiquitous tourism symbol of Keelung. The park is situated on the hill at the east side of Keelung Harbor, consisting of three levels. The 3rd level is where the giant statue of Goddess of Mercy stands, the landmark of Chung Cheng Park, and also the biggest goddess statue in Southeast Asia. Next, stop at northern Taiwan’s largest harbor, one of the most-visited tourist attractions. Explore Keelung Maritime Plaza with its beautiful views of Keelung Inner Harbor. On sunny days, take a relaxing tour to soak up the maritime ambiance, admire the beautiful public artworks on display, sit in the coffee shop, and enjoy the refreshing sea air. Next, visit Guihou Fishing Port, a scenic fishing village on the north coast. Every autumn, the Fishermen's Market near Guihou draws crowds for its delicious Wanli Crab. Even if you are not here for the seafood, you can get a glimpse of the rural life of Taiwan in this idyllic fishing village. Make your way to Yehliu Geopark, famous for its natural rock formations which are an amazing array of artistic shapes created by erosion and other natural forces. The most famous rock formation is the iconic “Queen’s Head”, a mushroom rock that resembles the profile of England’s Queen Elizabeth. Besides the Queen’s Head, other remarkable formations such as the Sea Candles, the Fairy Shoe, the Ginger Rocks, the Elephant Rock, the Ice Cream Rock, the Kissing Rock, and the Princess’ Head, are worth taking a look at. Then, it’s time to go back to the city and enjoy a quick and memorable trip to the iconic Taipei 101 shopping center. Your tour ends with return transport to your chosen drop-off location, either at Taipei 101 Mall or MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station.

Good but too hectic

The tour guid was nice, bus and organisation all perfect. Like all the other reviews already suggested: u have only one hour in the parc and that is not enough. Even half an hour more would already reduce the hectic running around and trying too see half od the parc.

The tour is well organized and Yehliu park is amazing. The only problem is that you would like to have more time to spend there. So if you stay in Taipei for short time, it can be the solution for you, but if you have a lot of time, I suggest to go by yourself and spend many hours because it is so relaxing in my opinion.

Amazing and Friendly Tour

This tour featured amazing rock formations, amazing and tranquil beauty, and peaceful coastlines. We had about one hour at the beautiful geopark, which was just enough time, because it was hot that day and very sunny. Next, we attended an impromptu tea ceremony in a quaint tea shop near where our van dropped us off. Our tour guide was conveniently waiting there. It was nice to sit down to some tea after being in the hot sun and taking pictures with the rock formations. Also, I liked the fact that our tour guide pointed out that we were only about 150 miles from Okinawa. Next, we went to beautiful Keelung, where we saw a beautiful giant golden Buddha, and another beautiful Buddha. The city views below were spectacular. We even had a chance for some ice cream in either taro or strawberry flavours on the way out. I would recommend this tour to anybody.
