Top things to do in Pingtung, Taiwan
Enjoy scenic adventures at Dapeng Bay
One of Taiwan’s best attractions in Pingtung, Dapeng Bay is a popular spot for sunset watching and water adventures.

Northeast of Pingtung is where the Rinari tribe calls home. With Rinari meaning “a place where we travel to and go together”, you’ll experience warm hospitality and try local delicacies (more on this in a bit!).

There’s no better way to have a truly local experience!
Now, onto the food. Because what’s a travel experience without tasting local cuisine? At this indigenous village, there’s the must-try wild boar meat, alongside special dishes prepared for traditional festivals and welcome ceremonies. Savour these meals while you soak in the hospitable ambience.
