Landscape and Ecology Tour

Strange rocks and badlands experiencing the local customs

Gangshan, Yanchao, Alian and Tianliao are located in the central region of Kaohsiung, and Gangshan’s mutton hot pot and Yanchao’s guava are not to be missed delicacies famous in Taiwan. Tianliao has unique geological landscape, and visitors can enjoy a picturesque view of the mountains from Siaogangshan Skywalk Park, a must-visit attraction for those who love adventure.

    Travel with Jarwashing

    Jarwashing was appointed the spokesperson for Kaohsiung tourism in December 2019, promoting Kaohsiung tourism resources by playing the role of a tour leader. Besides publishing several Kaohsiung travel notes, he also cooperates with the Tourism Bureau in launching interactive activities with fans, such as travel talks, Hamasing walking tour and a share talk at Kaohsiung International Travel Fair.

    Jarwashing x Yanchao adventure

    Yanchao is a remote mountainous region with narrow mountain roads. There are few visitors here, and the monkeys are afraid of strangers, which is different from Caishan’s “urban monkeys”. While wandering in the remote regions, I chanced upon numerous wonderful places known to few, not even to a local like me, and some places are not even found in the Google Map. These are often discovered while wandering aimlessly or in an expedition with an aim. As such, these “non-mainstream” and “not easily found” attractions are especially worth sharing.
    As the spokesperson for Kaohsiung tourism, I would like to take the opportunity to let more people know that, besides the attractions in the “egg yolk region of Kaohsiung”, such as the famous Xizi Bay, the Pier-2 Art Center and Lotus Pond, there is also the uncontested beautiful Yanchao.
