Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

For people who dive, you all have to check out Green Island. It has beautiful soft coral and visibility is 30-50m! The fish are amazing and when you go there, ask where the mushroom head coral is- it's the only one in the world. Subs actually took tourists down there to see it but cancelled this due to a sub actually hitting a piece off the coral!!!! I've seen sea snakes, moray eels, nurse sharks.......Green Island Rocks!

Sounds exciting! How would snorkelling there be?

this is just one of many threads on Green Island, diving and snorkelling. Click on the search button at the top of the page, key in green and island in the search box and you'll get all kinds of information.

I like driving in the mountains between 2 and 4 o'clock on weekdays. You just have to pick a time when there's not much traffic.

Lots of snorkelling sites there and they take snorkelling groups out and rent u equipment. It is worth going.....it takes about 45 mins. to scoot around the island too.
