Let's go to Hongshulin Mangrove Swamp

We have always wanted to go to the Hongshulin Mangrove Swamp (紅樹林生態保留區) as it is near our home. It occupies about 76 hectares of land and it is the largest homogenous mangrove swamp of a type called shuibitzai.

One fine day, we decided to check it out, I was the only one enjoying the walk because Dad and Mom were both bitten by mosquitoes, luckily Ashley was spared.

The views of Danshui River and the Guanyinshan mountain are rather nice, but I guess it's going to be our first and last time there.

Please enjoy the short video below without the mosquito bites.

Hi Dino,

I always love going to places in Taipei with you! :-) Although I don't like the sound of those mosquitoes!!

By the way, I must say - you are walking really nicely next to Ashley's stroller!
