Da Peng Bay 大鵬灣
Da Peng Bay is in Pingtung County. I've driven by it a hundred times on my way to or from Taitung, but I didn't actually visit it until last weekend. 大鵬灣在屏東縣. 我已經在往返台東的路上路過上百次了, 直到上個周末, 這是我第一次參觀大鵬灣.
The bay is closed off from the ocean by a bridge, and a two-lane road loops around the bay. It's about half wetland and half sand flat. I think their plan is to allow the sand flats to revert into wetland, but this is of course a slow process. The signs of aquaculture (fish farming) in this area are to be seen everywhere, and the barren remains of fish farms detract from the beauty of the area. 大鵬灣和海洋隔著一座橋. 有一條兩線道的道路繞大鵬灣一圈. 它的一半是濕地, 另一半是沙地. 我覺得屏東縣政府的計畫可能是等沙地慢慢恢復成濕地, 當然這需要很長的時間. 這裡到處都看得到水產養殖的影響, 所以這個風景區的風景不是最美的.
It is a good place for bird watching, but those looking for natural splendor will be disappointed. This place might be a lot prettier in ten to twenty years, but as of right now it's not much to look at. 這裡很適合賞鳥, 但對於崇尚大自然的觀光客應該覺得很失望. 可能十或二十幾年後這裡的景色才能比較漂亮, 現在的大鵬灣沒什麼好看的風景.
On the inner shore of the bay there is a resort area, and the go-kart racing in the resort is very popular. The rest of the resort is practically empty, and one wonders how half of the businesses and attractions inside can afford to stay open. 在灣內有一個休閒區. 這裡的賽車場很受歡迎. 除了賽車場之外, 在休閒區的客人不多. 讓人不禁懷疑這裡的商店, 餐廳和租車店怎麼經營得下去.
Next to the bridge that closes off the bay there's a small beach and camping area, and entrance to this place is 100 NT for non-locals on weekends. The beach isn't very scenic, and the camping area next to it offers few amenities. 在跨海大橋旁邊有一個沙灘跟露營區. 周末時外縣市的人要買100元的門票. 沙灘不是很漂亮. 隔壁的露營區也很簡單.
So is Da Peng Bay worth going to? If you're looking to race go-karts, it's a good place to go. If not, there are more interesting places in Pingtung... 所以呢? 要去大鵬灣嗎? 要賽車的人應該喜歡大鵬灣. 不想賽車的人應該去屏東其他的景點!
