Kenting (Kenting National Park), Taiwan, is one of the most beautiful parts of Taiwan, boasting picturesque beaches, great weather, and lots to do. Hostels in Kenting (Kenting National Park), Taiwan are abundant, but holidays and festival weekends fill up fast, so be sure to book in advance.

Located on the Hengchun Peninsula, Kenting is perfect for lovers of both the mountain and beach. Popular activities include renting a scooter for the day and making a loop around Kenting National Park on Highway Twenty-six and Road Two Hundred. This route will pass through the always-crowded Kenting Street (a busy night market on the weekends), hostels and surfing joints, white sand beaches, the Eluanbi Lighthouse (take a detour to see the southern-most point of Taiwan), old suspension bridges, and stunning cliffs on the east coast. You can also take a ride up to Hengchun Township to see the old city gates and the "Eternal Flame," or ride to the west to view the fishing ports and taste delicious seafood. Kenting National Park offers plenty of opportunities for nature lovers.

There are many Kenting (Kenting National Park), Taiwan hostels from which to choose. To be close to the beaches, be sure to stay near the coast on Kenting Street. Here, you will have access to the night market as well as several white-sand beaches, including Little Bay. To avoid the noise at night, pick a Kenting (Kenting National Park), Taiwan hostel that is a little further away from the center of the street. Food in this area is mostly fusion and Southeast Asian cuisine, and is usually pricey compared to other areas of Taiwan.

Another option is to stay in Hengchun Township, where hostels are slightly cheaper, but transportation is needed to access the beach. Benefits of Hengchun include cheaper food and more Taiwanese restaurants as well as a true taste of local culture.

Kenting is a great place to enjoy a weekend or a long break. The atmosphere is laid back and the beaches are just as beautiful as those in other parts of Southeast Asia. Once you arrive, you'll never want to leave!
