Not touristy like Kenting town, but still some good places to eat and get your bubble tea fix. The onion ice cream is a must-have.

The small town is quaint and small, but it is nice to see 1800s city walls and gates still standing as you pass through the town on the way to Kenting national park. Not much to see though until you get in the park.

If you are in the area for a few days, it is quite interesting to walk the old walls of Hengchun. It's usually quite a peaceful activity with lovely views of the surrounding area.There are parts that are not complete, but that is no barrier....More
