During my last visit to Taiwan I finally made the trip to visit the remote Penghu islands. Although I’ve lived in Taiwan on and off for almost two years, I never had the chance to go visit, and so when visiting back and looking for something new I knew this is where I should be. It was a brilliant trip that reminded me of everything that I adore about Taiwan, Taiwan travel, and local Taiwanese cultures. In a previous post I offered a taste of my “visions” of Penghu but that showed a very specific side of that trip, and it was missing some of the more local aspects of Penghu life – the wonderful beaches, and, well, the locals.

 

We’ll start with the beaches…

but perhaps the most interesting was the local village countryside life… simple, traditional, bizarre at times, but very special.
