Gaomei Wetlands is a lovely place with amazing scenery. You can either drive, walk or ride a bike around the area. It is about 50mins drive away from Taichung. In the recent years, it has become a famous place to watch the sunset.
Located on the western coast of Taiwan, this place is home to a great diversity of animal and plants. Migratory birds can be spotted throughout various seasons. There is a wooden walkway that stretches 800m into the wetlands. So during high tide, you can still walk out towards the sea. If the tide is low, you can get down to the wetland to catch crabs, mudskippers and shellfish.
If you love photography, you might want to capture the rows of windmills with the sunset as the backdrop for a wonderful memory of this place. While you are there, don’t forget to stop by Wuci Harbour, for a taste of the freshest seafood!
