Taipei, June 20 (CNA) One of the highlights of this year’s Taiwan Cycling Festival, which kicks off later
this month, will be for participants to visit the “Furthest Lighthouses” in the island, as part of an exploration of Taiwan’s coastal beauty, according to the organizers.
The first of a series of events will feature “Furthest Lighthouses in Taiwan” biking tours, which start on June 24 at Fugueijiao Lighthouse, the northernmost point of the island, the Tourism Bureau said.
Participants will be offered the option of taking a short bike tour near the lighthouse or an island-wide tour, the bureau said.
Similar activities will take place at Sandiaojiao (Cape Santiago) Lighthouse — the easternmost tip of Taiwan — on July 15; Eluanbi Lighthouse at Taiwan’s southernmost point on Sept. 2; and Guosheng Lighthouse, the westernmost tip, on Sept. 16, the bureau said. [FULL STORY]
