Tips for Senior Traveler:

The islands of Penghu have a similar terrain, and most of them are flat. Clear seas, pure beaches and beautiful skies make Penghu a favorite ocean resort destination. Both the Kuroshio tributary current (during summer) and mainland China's coastal current (during winter) pass through the Penghu sea territory. Because of this, the marine life in this area is very rich, making Penghu an outstanding classroom for marine biology. During the migration season, all kinds of birds pass through this area. Tourists can often see beautiful views of hunting seagulls, and the other 200-plus bird species here. This makes Penghu an excellent location for bird watching. Tourists also come to Penghu for fishing and snorkeling. They take boats and travel around the neighboring islands to enjoy the sea views and savor a wonderful vacation at sea. Penghu shows its uniqueness in its cultural resources, thanks to the influences of its environment as well as its Chinese culture and history. Many religious activities take place in Penghu. The 97 villages and towns in the archipelago are home to 183 temples. Those with the longest history include the Tianhou, Wusheng, City God, and Bao-an Temples, and the Guanyin Pavilion. Other important historical sites also abound. Penghu is famous for seafood, such as groupers, abalone, lobsters, clams, and shellfish. Peanuts, sponge gourds, and cantaloupes are the main agricultural products. The best-known mineral is the veined stone, which is found only here and in Italy. The veined stones of Penghu are very famous for their color and quality, which is recognized as being the best in the world. Many arts and crafts stores can be found in the city of Magong, where tourists can find inexpensive and beautiful artworks carved from various kinds of stone.
