Kenting, Taiwan

Kenting Map - Travel Guide - Morry Travels

Kenting is in the Southernmost part of Taiwan. Here, you get to enjoy some beautiful white sand beaches and beautiful views.

In this article, I will tell you all the ways to get to Kenting and give you the best transportation discounts.

🚌 Getting Around: Taiwan

Taiwan has a really convenient public transportation system. I’ve written a full guide on getting around, so I won’t explain too much here. ➡️ See: Getting Around Taiwan: A Guide to Transportation for Foreign & Solo-Travelers

In general, getting around is very simple using Taiwan’s ➡️ EasyCard<span> </span>or ➡️ IPass. Both of these cards work for all public transportation around the entire island. You can even use them to pay for items at convenience stores such as 7-Eleven, FamilyMart, HiMart, etc.

If you plan to visit Taiwan often and have the U.S. Global Entry, you can also consider signing up for Taiwan’s E-Gate program. ➡️ See: How to Skip the Lines at Taiwan’s Airports with U.S. Global Entry

🚌 Getting Around: Kenting

Getting around Kenting, unfortunately, is a bit harder if you don’t have a scooter or a car.

The public bus comes once every 30-45 minutes, and they do not always stop at their own bus stop. There is also no MRT system here, and a taxi ride costs NT$300 (~$10 USD) to go 2-3KM.
 
The best alternative options to public transportation is to:
  • Rent a car / scooter (requires an international driver’s license/permit)
  • Hire a driver
  • Book a group/private tour

🚄 By High Speed Rail + Car/Shuttle

The fastest and most convenient way to go from Taipei to Kenting will be by High Speed Rail + Car/Shuttle.

  • To get to Kenting, you will first stop in Kaohsiung. Then from Kaohsiung, you will get to Kenting by Car/Shuttle.
  • A High Speed Rail ride from Taipei to Kaohsiung takes approximately 1 hour 34 mins, while driving can take 3.5 to 4 hours.

✅ If you are a foreigner, you can get additional discounts on Taiwan’s High Speed Rail Tickets.

💡 Optional: Stop and Explore Kaohsiung

Since you have to pass by Kaohsiung in order to get to Kenting, I recommend spending a day or two in Kaohsiung to explore the city.

🗺️ From Kaohsiung to Kenting

The only way to get from Kaohsiung to Kenting is either by car, shuttle, or taxi/Uber. If you have an International Driver’s License/Permit and want to drive, you can rent a car at one of Taiwan’s many car rental companies. See Next Section.

Taxi and Uber are the least budget option, so I would NOT recommend.
