−−−−−−−−−−−−《Small tips》−−−−−−−−−−−−
(1) The largest mobile network here is "Chunghwa Telecom (CHT)", others may not have signal on most of the island.

(2) Please note that because of meteorological conditions (high waves, typhoons or storms), ferry or plane are often canceled or delayed, so some people may be trapped on the island for several days.

(3) Especially if you need to move to another city from Tai-tung or Ken-ting, after leaving Orchid Island. We suggset you to buy train/bus ticket in a 7-11. Because tickets bought in a train station, can't be cancel or refund on the island, only the one bought in a 7-11 can. By the way, if you have to take a flight to overseas after your Orchid Island trip, think carefully about your schedules.

(4) The weather is relatively stable in June, traffic too. Flying fish season is from end of March to early June, so early June is the most appropriate time to visit Orchid Island!
