Chenggong Fishing Harbor
Fruitful catches are available from the end of March to June, when every seafood restaurant in town serves the best oceanic catch at good prices. When northeastern wind starts to blow in November, so arrives the season of sailfish, the time when many events take place and make Chenggong a busy town. The ocean outside Chenggong is where Oyashio Current and Kuroshio Current meet, attracting plenty of whales and dolphins, as well as tourists, who come here between May and October to admire the colossal creatures on boat rides.

Interesting SeafoodThere are variety of seafood that can be found here. The fish sellers took their goods here to do business. Do go and experience it on the morning...
Fresh fish, great lunchDrove past this small fish town after a visit to Sanxiantai, around 13h. The fish was just being unloaded from the ships, which provided a great atmosphere. Right at the market there are some food places. Try having a few fresh dishes, tastes amazing!
Fresh Fish GaloreThe Chenggong Fishing Port and Fish Market are must-see attractions in this quiet fishing village. Located under the amazing ship shaped Fishermen's Association building behind the Aquarium it can't be missed. Every afternoon the boats bring their sparkling catches back for auction on the market floor. There are marlin harpooned from the bowsprits of the uniquely designed, multi-colored boats, together with sharks, sailfish and giant tunas. Depending on the season there may be heaps of dolphinfish (mahi mahi), wahoo and even enormous sunfish (mola mola). Within a few hours all has been dispatched for on-sale in the big cities of Taiwan or even exported. The rest are cut up and distributed for local consumption. You can grab a snack or beer at one of the market stands, or stroll up town to any of the restaurants serving delicious fresh seafood.
