Gaomei Wetland, Qingshui

#1 of 69 in Parks in Taichung
An elevated boardwalk snaking through a biodiverse landscape, Gaomei Wetland provides a protected sanctuary for wildlife and plant life. Established in 2005, the wetlands span 300 ha (741.3 ac) of land, consisting of a vast plain of marshy terrain scattered with wind turbines. Stroll the seemingly never-ending length of boardwalk, looking out for tiny crabs and birds in the surrounding watery reeds. Try to time your visit to coincide with sunset, which offers particularly spectacular views across the shimmering expanse.

  • A little out of the way, but with stunning sunset views :) reached about 3+pm via taxi, took a stroll and watched the sun set at about 5+pm. Nice place to chill and relax.  more »
  • There are many applications in the service center - the bio-life, the shape, the mutual, the health education center, but it's under renovation, so it's a job. I took a trip to the wooden road, just happened to have a flower of the dragonfly, very smooth, the feeling is not good. What's worse than that is that the dragonfly is too strong, too heavy as my, and there is a little quick to stop and enjoy the usual little crabs. Like the sunset of every place, it's beautiful.

  • So this is a nice spot to visit to watch the sunset near Taichung. It’s a bit of a drive from the city center, at about 45 minutes away. Honestly, it’s beautiful, yes. But if you’re looking to be in the city itself and explore, this place may not be for you. It’s a long ride to just watch the sunset over the ocean with open skies. If you’re hungry, there are a few small food stands and a couple restaurants across the road from the viewing area on the water. Am I glad I went? Sure. Would I go again? Probably not. Feels mostly like an instagramable spot at sunset for just a few minutes. If you do go, be sure to get there maybe 30-45 minutes before sunset, as the sun wasn’t quite visible behind the clouds. Bring a jacket too. The wind off the water can be quite chilly.
