台北市内から九份への行きと帰りに利用しました。台北から混雑するバスを避け、台鉄で基隆へ電車移動し駅前から788系統バスに乗車しました。ほぼ座席が埋まる程度で発車し "九份老街" まで1時間弱の乗車時間となりました。鉄道とバスの乗継でしたがICカード利用で割引となりお得感がありました。又、基隆でのバス待ちの間に蠣オムレツも食す事が出来ました。 猶、帰路の台北行は、「満員通過」を避ける為、下車したバス停から少し上がった場所にある下り方面行 "九份老街" バス停から乗車しました。台北行1062系統も基隆行788

Heping Island Park

Heping Island was called Sheliao Island in the past. It is located at the north of Taiwan. Heping Bridge connects the island to Keelung City. In 1626, the Spanish army built castles, churches and fortresses, preparing to do business with China and Japan. The castle on the southwest is called San Salvador, the saint savior. This is the first and currently the only castle in Keelung. During the Spanish occupation, Heping Island had busy trading activities with Southeast Asia. After World War II, the island was renamed Heping Island. Today, it is a famous tourist attraction. Heping Island is perfect for diving and sea fishing. With years of erosion by the wind and sea, the eroded rocks and coasts have formed special shapes. We have made Heping Island a coastal park with Ocean pools, beach, tour track, tourism service center and food and beverages. An idealy place for family to have fun together.

Chaojing Park

Chaojing Park is located in the east side of the Badouzi peninsula and faces the Wanghaixiang bay. Although it was originally the site of a 1000 square meter landfill, the construction of the NMMST has brought about a huge transformation. Chaojing Park now features a parking lot, bike trails, futons, garden chairs, lawns and landscape sculptures, making it a wonderful place to walk, jog, bike and go sight-seeing. Inside the park, a local poet has left his works to allow tourists to appreciate the maritime lifestyle.
