Overview

【Keelung Harbor】
Keelung Harbor is located at the northern tip of Taiwan Island, between Fugui Cape and Cape Bitou. The harbor is embraced by mountains to its east, west, and south with a narrow waterway approximately 2,000 meters in length and 400 meters in width that extend from the inner harbor in the southwest to the harbor mouth in the northwest. Featuring both military and commercial applications, Keelung Harbor serves as an excellent harbor in Northern Taiwan.
Situated facing the Pacific Ocean, the sea is as familiar to the city of Keelung as its own breath. To arrive at Keelung is to be baptized by the ocean. Make a trip to the harbor city, and you will find its many-faceted beauty. Walking out of Keelung Train Station, what meets your eyes is the scenic view of Keelung Harbor. Here, the residents live every day of their life with the azure sea. You can stop here to view the sea harbor, and the luxury passenger and postal liners coming in and out, making it one of the best spots for enjoying intimate conversations and night views. In the future, Keelung Harbor will go beyond a port where commercial vessels come and go and great volumes of goods are swallowed and spit out. Through integrated development of the surrounding architecture, portside parks, as well as aquatic business and ocean tourism, a new harbor landscape will be remade to be closer to the general public.

【Chung Cheng Park】
Zhongzheng Park is situated on the side of Dashawan Mountain, which is at the east of Keelung City. There is a white statue of Goddess of Mercy in the park. This 25-meter high statue has become one of the characteristics of Keelung. The park overlooks Keelung City and the harbor. There are three levels in the park. On the first level is a historic canon fort. On the second level is a Buddhist library, Martyrs’ Shrine and Zhuputan Temple. The temple attracts many worshipers on July 15. On the third level is Guanhai Pavilion. Sitting in the pavilion, visitors can see the entire Keelung and the ocean.

【Yehliu】
Yeliu is a cape of about 1,700 meters long formed by Datun Mountain reaching into the sea. When overlooked from above, the place is like a giant turtle submerging into the sea. Thus, it is also called “Yeliu Turtle”. Because the rock layer of seashore contains sandstone of limestone texture and it is subject to sea erosion, weathering and earth movements, there is particular scenery consisting of sea trenches/holes, candle shaped rocks, and pot shaped rocks. The place is divided into three sections. The first section has rocks like Queen’s Head, Fairy’s Shoe and Candle. The second section has rocks like Bean Curd, Dragon Head. The third section has sea-eroded caves, seal shaped rock, etc. The place is suitable for geological study and field research. In addition, there is a statue of Lin Tien Jane in commemoration of the person’s bravery of scarifying own live for saving others. The monument describes in details the touching story.
