Keelung Port: A Relaxing Stroll Along The Dock

posted in: Places 3

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Keelung port is undoubtedly the heart of Keelung. In summer, when it’s less hot in the evening or after dinner, you can take a walk along Maritime Plaza and enjoy the boats, the colours, and the lights on the water. It changes every few seconds, like a sort of disco for fish.

Take a seat along one of the many benches next to Keelung Port, and you will see part of the great phosphorescent “Keelung” written in Hollywood style on the nearby hill. Enjoy the sea air, observe the fish jump out from time to time, and you might hear a music man who plays the saxophone or a woman singing modern Taiwanese songs.

If you get tired, you can take a walk to the crowded streets in front of Keelung port, have a cup of tea with grass jelly, or try other typical Taiwanese foods. You can get lost between these streets. You might even stumble into the streets of the fish market or the night market (Miaokou night market).

Spend a quiet evening strolling near the port. Here you can enjoy a simple walk that will make you forget your worries and enjoy your surroundings.

L’ho detto e lo ripeto, il cuore di Keelung e’ senza dubbio il porto di Keelung. Quando in estate fa meno caldo, verso sera o dopo cena, ti fai una passeggiata lungo il Maritime Plaza, ti godi la vista delle barche e dei colori delle luci sull’acqua che cambiano ogni qualche secondo, in una sorta di discoteca per pesci.

Poi ti siedi lungo le panche che circondano e sono parte della grande scritta fosforescente “Keelung” in stile hollywoodiano, ti godi l’aria di mare, osservi i pesci saltare fuori di tanto in tanto, a volte vieni accompagnato dalla musica dell’uomo che suona il sax o della donna che canta canzoni taiwanesi moderne. Se ti stufi ti puoi fare una passeggiata per le affolate vie di fronte al porto di Keelung, ti prendi un te’ con la gelatina, tipico di Taiwan..ti perdi fra le stradine, forse incappi nelle strade del mercato del pesce o del mercato notturno, forse ti fai una passeggiata per il lungo fiume verso Zhongzheng park, o ti ritrovi di fronte a qualche tempio o nelle zone nascoste vicino alla stazione ferroviaria dove ti capita di trovare due uomini che giocano a scacchi cinesi per strada.

Passi una serata tranquilla sia che tu abbia tanti pensieri per la testa, sia che tu voglia goderti una semplice passeggiata da osservatore dimenticando tutto il resto.

As sinologist and passionate of Chinese culture i like to learn about all the culture, especially the one of my specialization. I like to travel and after three years in China i decided to join the Keelung-residence program who let me know more about this city's places&culture. The ceremonies, the dedication of people for them, the traditional music, the hidden historical places showed me a new attractive world.
