Getting there & away
Kinmen Airport (322 381; www.kma.gov.tw/index-e.htm) is about 8km east of Kincheng city, and has a counter providing English information.
In spring, Kinmen is often fogged in, leading to cancelled flights. Book a return ticket, because flights are often fully booked as business people use Kinmen as a transit point to head into the Mainland.
Uni Air (324 881), TransAsia Airways (321 501) and Far Eastern Air Transport (327 339) all have offices at Kinmen airport and fly directly to Kinmen from Taipei, Chiayi, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung.
