According to statistics from travel platform Klook, the number of outdoor activity bookings in Taiwan at the end of June increased threefold compared with the same period last year, CNA reported. Water sports, ecological experiences, and hiking are the most popular, while paragliding and light aircraft trips have also seen increased interest.
Klook said that water skiing has seen a rise in popularity in recent years in places like Penghu. Another popular activity has been river tracing — also known as canyoning — where people hike, climb, swim, or abseil along canyons or gorges which are located all around the country.
Taiwan is also home to some of the best coastal rock climbing cliffs, Klook pointed out. Longdong (龍洞), located in the northeast has attracted climbers from all over the world.
