Keelung Harbor is located at the northern tip of Taiwan Island, between Fugui Cape and Cape Bitou. The harbor is embraced by mountains to its east, west, and south with a narrow waterway approximately 2,000 meters in length and 400 meters in width that extend from the inner harbor in the southwest to the harbor mouth in the northwest. Featuring both military and commercial applications, Keelung Harbor serves as an excellent harbor in Northern Taiwan. Situated facing the Pacific Ocean, the sea is as familiar to the city of Keelung as its own breath. To arrive at Keelung is to be baptized by the ocean. Make a trip to the harbor city, and you will find its many-faceted beauty. Walking out of Keelung Train Station, what meets your eyes is the scenic view of Keelung Harbor. Here, the residents live every day of their life with the azure sea. You can stop here to view the sea harbor, and the luxury passenger and postal liners coming in and out, making it one of the best spots for enjoying intimate conversations and night views.
In the future, Keelung Harbor will go beyond a port where commercial vessels come and go and great volumes of goods are swallowed and spit out. Through integrated development of the surrounding architecture, portside parks, as well as aquatic business and ocean tourism, a new harbor landscape will be remade to be closer to the general public.
