[Kenting 垦丁] Kenting National Park & Kenting Main Street

Kenting (垦丁) is located at the most southern tip of the Taiwan island, in Hengchun (Pingdong Country) and is surrounded by water on all three sides: the Taiwan Strait, the Luzon Strait, and the Pacific Ocean. Due to its geography, it has a very warm climate and tropical weather all year long. Kenting is known for its beautiful equatorial scenery and is approximately 90 kilometers, or 56 miles, away from Kao-Hsiung (高雄).  

Even though it was late December when I visited, the weather in Kenting was perfect. Neither too cold nor too hot, the temperature was ideal to relax in the sun. At times, there would be wind but not unbearable. In fact, the breeze was quite comfortable, especially during the day. However, I would recommend bringing a jacket if you come here in the wintertime because it does get a little chilly at night. 

Like all other night markets in Taiwan, the Kenting Main Street night market is full of little stalls that serve all kinds of local snacks, food, and souvenirs.


I stayed at the Chateau Beach Resort, which is located in the Kenting National Park area and by the beach. The resort itself has an exclusive 3-km (1.88miles) long beach with very fine sand. 

Here are some pictures I took from the resort's private beach: 

The resort has an outdoor private pool that faces the beach.

I was so glad to have ended my Taiwan trip on such a relaxing note! :)
