Sunset Platform(觀夕平台)




Sunset Platform (觀夕平台), located in Anping Harbor National Historical Park (安平港國家歷史風景區), has become a popular scenic spot in recent years. The triangular platform, protected on two sides by trees, creates a lush green scene, and in front of the platform is the beautiful blue ocean view. In the afternoon, it is common to see families bring their children to play with sand and fly kites on the beach, or two to three friends roll up their trousers and paddle through the waves along the shore, but sunset is when the most people come to stand on the platform. Sunset Platform's low light source design makes it not only good for viewing the sea in the daytime, the low light pollution also allows the glittering stars to be seen at night, making this a popular location whenever a meteor shower is forecast.

    It’s a very beautiful natural place. It’s a must to visit when visiting Tainan. Really it’s very beautiful. And this place is suitable to bring kids to visit.

    Best boat experience to see a mangrove swamp

    Traveler rating:5 2018-12

    You will need to buy a ticket to take a raft ride into a mangrove swamp. The whole ride is 30 minutes. In the swamp, you will see four kinds of mangrove found in Taiwan and wildlife on both sides of the waterway. The water is very clean and clear, as it is only about 1 meter deep. The highlight is a natural tunnel formed by the trees. The scenery and landscape is spectacular. It gives you a great feeling that you are going through the forest of the Amazon river. Do plan to go there in the morning, otherwise it is very hot and the raft is open air.

    You would only need 1 hour here

    Traveler rating:3 2018-11

    In summary, its a slow, simple and quaint raft ride down a narrow river/canal with mangrove plants and small crabs at the side. The ride that I took was half hour long, with waiting time another half hour. There is a longer ride available but i didnt opt for it. It isn't that much of a wildlife experience I imagined to be honest.

    It's a short raft ride

    Traveler rating:4 2018-09

    The mangrove green tunnel is quite interesting. The raft ride takes about 30 minutes, takes you thru the mangrove tunnel, with very good explanation from the tour guide. Overall very enjoyable ride.

    Nice but quite a short boat ride only. There were one or two short photo-opportunity stretches and that was it really.
