We should have left a little earlier in the morning to get to Fulong Beach the train ride was an hour and a half. Most of the way there a gaggle of girls giggled and waved to Ryan, occasionally emitting phrases like: Hi!, Where you from? They finally worked up the courage to ask him if they could take a photo with him. Lucky for us they too were heading for Fulong Beach. What luck! It was very easy to find although we didn't see it when we got in to the train station. But there is basically a path of vendors to the sidewalk that leads to the beach. A drunken monkey could have found, no offense to you monkeys out there. The admission was 90 NT, I'd never paid to get in to a beach before, but 90 NT wasn't bad. There was a huge bridge that went over a tributary and took us to the actual beach, which was a peninsula of sorts. It was pretty hot when we got there at 10 am and it only got hotter. I was the only one in a bikini for a long time and most of the girls there wore whole outfits into the water. I put on one layer of sunscreen which I believe saved me from getting burned as bad as Ryan but I still got burned over the course of our three hour beach extravaganza. I'm definitely applying it more frequently next time. On our way back we followed the path to the left until it lead us to a spectacular view of the beach. No one was around either, perfect. We had a great time and ensured that our local Cossmed stayed in business by purchasing all of there Aloe products.
