North East and Yilan Coast – Taiwan

A Transformation of Abandoned Military Camp in Bitou Cape

Bitou Cape, nestled in the north-eastern corner of Taiwan and housing a pathway often referred to as the “Mini Great Wall,” is a headland known for its distinctive geological landscape, rich biodiversity, and seafood, magnetizes tourists from all over. Alongside the trail up the mountain lies a military camp that was abandoned in 2000. Recognizing the opportunity to leverage this idle space for tourism purpose, the Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area Administration (shortened as NEYC), initiated a renovation project for this abandoned Bitou Cape military camp.
