Erliao Sunrise(二寮日出)

Saturday:Open 24 hours a day





Erliao (二寮) has the lowest altitude in Taiwan where the slanting light of the beautiful sunrise meets the clouds and mist of a chalk terrain (白堊地形) bamboo forest; its likeness to a traditional Chinese painting makes it a mecca of photography in Tainan. The day after summer rain is the best time to see the sunrise at Erliao, and at this time every morning between 2 am and 7am, if it's sunny and cloudless, Erliao is unlikely to be empty. The place is always full of tourists and photographers waiting for the sun to rise, watching the dark, starry sky and waiting for the sun to come out from behind the mountain and rouse the forest. Eventually golden rays sprinkle over all parts of the chalk bamboo forest, and penetrate the mist as in a Chinese painting. Tourists will raise their heads from this breathtaking view to discover the sun has long passed the mountain top. The charm of Erliao Sunrise is that you never know how it will appear on any given day; it may bring endless clear rays of light or a faintly glowing mist.
