OhBear immediately became a pleasant surprise as some of the visitors were given souvenirs after checking in Facebook with a photo taken with OhBear at the festival entrance and leaving the message “2016 Fulong Sand Sculpture very good!”
This year’s festival takes place from May 7 to July 10 on the three kilometer-long golden beach between Yanliao and Fulong in the Northeast Coast. Visitors can take a Taiwan Railway train, get off at Fulong, and walk for five minutes to the site by following signs along the roads.
Visitors who drive can park their cars at the adjacent parking lots of the Yanliao Beach Park, Longmen Sports Park, Longmen Camping Site, and Fulong Visitor Center, and take one of the free hourly shuttle buses running on weekends to the venue. [FULL STORY]
