Trip Moments

Qixingtan, also known as Crescent Bay, is known as the Tan, but it is a curved bay paved with large and small gravel. The history of Qixingtan can be traced back to the Qing Dynasty. In the Qing Dynasty's "Taiwanese map and the general map of Taiwan's Houshan", there are several low-lying wetlands in Hualien. These wetland lakes of various sizes are Qixingtan. Another way of saying it is that when the weather is good at night, because there is no light damage, you can clearly see the Big Dipper on the sky at the seaside, so the locals call it Qixingtan. There are bicycle lanes in the Qixingtan Scenic Area. You can use the bicycle to ride in the Nanbin Park, Stone Carving Park, Star Plaza, and Guanri Building. Therefore, the best way to play Qixingtan is to rent a bicycle. There are many layers of water, light blue, dark blue, green, light, white, and the different colors of the waves are intertwined, making you feel so beautiful, and you can't help but open up.
