I slept one night in Fo Guang Shan monastery. In the evening I took part in a ceremony of chanting monks and the next day I joined a grand tour of the premises and practiced calligraphy. Later that day I paid a visit to the imposing Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum.

Sanxiantai | Taiwan’s Three Saints Island

Dragon bridge Sanxiantai was originally a headland, but the sea gradually eroded the neck of the promontory, creating an offshore islet. Tourists who used to visit this place could only reach the island during low tide. In 1987, the famous 400-meter-long eight-arched footbridge was built. It was designed to mimic the shape of waves and resembles a mythical dragon stretching across the sea. It has become the most renowned landmark on the East Coast of Taiwan.
