Dapeng Bay -大鵬灣-
|Duuuudee, I'm surf-sailing!|
-Dapeng Bay is the biggest lagoon on the southwest coastline of Taiwan. In the old days, Dapeng Bay used th be knowns as "Biesing Harbor","Cieteng Harbor",or "Nanping Harbor." During the Japanese colonial era, it was renowned as Dapeng Bay. The Japanese used the lagoon as a seaplane military base during World II. In 1949 the Chinese National Party (KMT) government reclaimed the bay and officially renamed it as "Dapeng Bay"- DBNSA
As we approach to the end of the weekend, we started visit even more beautiful places, one of them Dapeng Bay. Such a shame we couldn't take a dip in the refreshing water (it was kinda late and they were closing the surf-sailing place actually), but thanks to our friend's cousin, we could take a spin on the rubber boat with the guy in charge of the area, we drifted on the water...literally aaand I got my pants all wet but it was fun though.

Donggang Temples -東港廟-
Though I'm not going to talk about the temples, but instead I'm going to share some few shots of the "King Boat" of 2012, that they're going to use for the festival.

-This ceremony is an important religious ceremony held once every three years. Donglong temple is one of the “big three” temples of Donggang. The Wangye of Donglong Temple is one of the main gods worshipped by the people of Donggang and has a close connection to the development of local customs.- DBNSA

Note: the photos above are NOT of the Donggang King Boat Festival. Photos of the festival are way way waaaaay more crowded.
