Spectacular Wangong Fishing Port-8
“Fishing boat lights of Wanggong” is one of the 8 major scenic views in Changhua. In recent years, the number of fishing boats has declined and the sight is also gradually disappearing into history. However, one can catch a commanding view of the fishing port at the Wanggong Fishing Port observation deck by the ocean. Before the tide rises, a fleet of sampans will return to the port bearing oysters, and you will see mudskippers and fiddler crabs at the tidal flat. If you are lucky, you may even catch clams in the mud. Follow the embankment road behind Fangyuan Lighthouse and head towards Xinbao Village, you will reach the large expanse of mangroves restored by Changhua County Department of Agriculture over a period of many years. Egrets and other aquatic birds can be seen resting in the 1m tall mangroves, making it a wonderful classroom for natural ecology.
