Desert of Ci-gu Lighthouse Tainan, Taiwan


In Taiwan, because of the subtropical climate, a traditional “desert” is impossible to appear here. But every winter, the northeast monsoon comes. During this time a miracle happens, we can actually see the desert in south Taiwan.

Sand covers the entire road, You can only WALK around here, don’t mention the cars or scooters.

Endless sand dunes, even higher than the wave-breakers lying around. Only hexagonal stones reveal the middle of the desert, which looks like the nails inside here. And it is covered with a strong wind kiis-off line. The wind flows and flows again, without any shoe prints.

It’s a secret location in Taiwan. Few people knows it here, so you can take lots of pictures. You don’t need to worry about the tourists and noise people.

So if you do not enough money to go to Egypt, it’s ok! You can come here and enjoy the lovely sunshine days here in cold winter! One thing that you need to notice is that you may need to wear hat or mask in order to protect yourself against the strong wind.
