Introducing Pingtung County

Oddly, Taiwan's poorest county has some of the country's best beaches, most fertile farmland, richest fish stocks and balmiest weather. Also, Pingtung County (屏東) boasts one of the most exuberant festivals in Taiwan, the Burning of the Wang Yeh Boats, and there are outdoor pursuits aplenty – swimming, snorkeling and birding at Kenting National Park, and cycling along the quiet county roads that roll slowly past calming fields and foothills.
