Qixingtan aka Seven-Star Lake (Direct translation)

Qixingtan was once the name of a series of small lakes situated where the Hualien Airport now stands. But in 1936, Taiwan’s Japanese rulers filled in the lakes as part of a modernization drive, and the local people retreated to the coastal area.

The beautiful area of coastline lies at the tip of a crescent bay overlooking the blue-green Pacific Ocean is now call Qixingtan by their descendants.


Pss: i've to wake up at 430am in the morning for this shot during my 2days stay in Hua-Lien (Taiwan).. I guess i'm lucky as the dark cloud is actually blocking the sun initially during the dusk period but they moved away when the sun was rising.. ^.^
