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If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)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

Penghu's flat and seems like it'd be good for cycling, but those winds are strong. I'd only recommend cycling there for people who bike regularly.

Here's the website for my favorite place to stay in Penghu. It's called the Er-Kan Village and it's a lot quieter than Magong, and in my opinion a lot prettier. They fixed up a bunch of old houses and then converted the whole place into a b&b. The proprietors are extremely friendly and generous. My family has stayed there twice (and we're going back at the end of June) and I have recommended the place to numerous friends. Everyone has always reported back with rave reviews.

Winds werent that bad on Penghu when I was there in April.

(I hadnt cycled for quite a long time but) on my first day I managed to cycle from Guoye to Makong (then around town to visit all the sights), then down to the southern part of the island towards Fenggui caves, and back to Guoye... I do recommend some sort of headcovering though, it was quite sunny and I ended up with quite a dark tan on my face and neck.
