TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – As camping has become trendy in recent years, a newly completed coastal campsite located on Taichung’s Daan coastal area is expected to become operational in November, according to Taichung’s Tourism and Travel Bureau.

The city government has spent NT$30 million (about US$ 1 million) to construct and furnish the Daan coastal campsite, which is really one of a kind, according to the bureau.

The 2-hectare campsite has 26 camping units for year-round camping: 4 container units, 6 sea view pavilion units, 4 units for families, and 4 units for clans, the bureau said.

The bureau noted that the wind resistant container camping units are colorful, with roofs shaped like giant building blocks.
