The Penghu or Pescadores Islands are an archipelago of almost 70 islands and islets in the Taiwan Strait between mainland China and Taiwan, covering an area of 141 square kilometers (54 sq mi). 
Most of the islands are inhabited.
The major city is Magong, located on the largest island, which is also named Penghu.  
Magong is reachable by flight from Taipei, Taichung, Jiayi, Tainan, Kaohsiung and Jinmen Island.
Fly is the fastest way to reach Penghu ( it's about 20 minutes flight ) but you might need some help to book it because it's often fully book ... ( and the websites are in Chinese ... !).

During the summer months you can also take the ferry from Kaohsiung which takes 5 hours and 5 minutes. The fastest way is the ferry from Budai port of Chiayi to Penghu, the traveling time is only 90 minutes. 
This service may not be available every day and sailing times are subject to change according to the season. 

The Penghu Islands has a rich history of piracy, imperialism and colonization, temples and traditional homes, along with the rich natural landscape.

" There’s a pop classic in Taiwan called “Grandma’s ­Penghu Bay.” The lyrics speak of the gentle even­ing breezes that waft over ­Penghu Bay, the white-capped breakers and sundrenched beaches, and of course the sea of blue, so blue. The ­Penghu Islands attract tens of thousands of tourists annually, especially during the Ocean Fireworks Festival, and most can’t help but start singing “Grandma’s ­Penghu Bay” to themselves."

 

Since 2003, the year the Penghu Ocean Fireworks Festival was held for the first time. This festival has become a tradition in Penghu over the last decade.
The festival will be from Monday Thursday, from April to June.
Additional surprise during this period!!!

Itinerary

Penghu flights and accomodation

Penghu is very well known among the Taiwanese as an "easy destination to reach" for a week end out, far from the cities.
Therfore flights are often fully booked in the week end and, unless you speak and read Mandarin, it will be quite difficolt to book the flights. 
The choice of B&B and homestay is illimited, but let us suggest the ones we have liked the most.
