To get the most out of a trip to Penghu you really need to spend five to seven days making your way around the islands. However, most people tend to come for three to four days. Here are a couple of suggested itineraries for those who want to see the best of Penghu but have limited travel time.
Firstly, to make the most of your time, renting a scooter is the way to go. Scooters are relatively cheap to rent, easy to ride and offer a huge amount of freedom in exploring the islands. For those who prefer to cycle around, make sure you have your own cycling gear and check out the cycling routes detailed (translated from Chinese) on this great website.
Which ever way you choose to get around, be sure to get a map (from the airport or visitor centre) and stock up on water, sun cream, snacks and of course if you like taking pictures bring your camera. If you plan on going swimming or surfing it’s helpful to check the tides to find out the best time to hit the water. Because of rocks and coral most beaches are best during high tide. Enjoy!
