Penghu most appealing attractions - Twin Hearts Stone Weir was located in CiMei. It is located in the south of MaGong, the city where most of the tourists stay. From the harbor, it takes about one and a half hour on boat to CiMei.
Fortunately, I was too tired and fall asleep, if not, I believe the hot weather, the heat of the cabin, and such a long journey will make me feel seasickness. After we arrived CiMei, we rented a motorcycle. As there are too many tourists, we just follow them instead of looking at the map.
七美人塚Seven Beauties Tomb
Our first stop was Seven Beauties Tomb, which is to commemorate the seven women who fight for their____. Long long time ago, when the men of the island were out to sea fishing, a group of pirates came to plunder at the island. In order to defend themselves, the seven women suicide, jumping into the well. Later, the island which was named DaYu Island had changed to CiMei Island because of this story.
According to legend, a woman was waiting for her husband returned from fishing; but he didn’t return back. At last, the woman was found lying on the ground, the locals bury here there. Later, the reef there slowly became the shape of a pregnant woman, so called Waiting-Husband Reef. I found a lots of spot named "Waiting Husband Reed" on net. What keep women always waiting?!?
The abrasion platform’s appearance resembles a map of Taiwan, so-called Little Taiwan. Next to it is a green and vast NiouMuPing, pretty pleasant. But no trees could shade, extremely HOT ~
