Keelung City

Keelung belongs to northern Taiwan, with mountains surrounding on three sides, while Donghai (The Eastern Sea) in its north front. Serving as a natural harbor with immense water, Keelung has its bay cut into downtown deeply.

Within the city are much more slopes than planes, and moreover, theprotective Keelung Islet and Hoping Islet screen on both sides of the water. These factors mentioned above have contributed to this natural and strategically difficult point, which combines roles of commercial, military, and fishing harbor, yet most importantly, keeps guard at the gates of the whole Taipei area. Famous foods in Keelung include the night market in front of the temple gate, Lienjen Cake Store, Lihu Cake Store, and Taiyanggu (Sun Valley) Honey Store.
