Gugang Lake Scenic Area (Gugang Tower and Gugang Lake)古崗湖風景區
It's close to Zhaishan Tunnel, so can be combined with a visit there.
Inside the tower there are some old photos of Chiang Kai-Shek's visits here.
This is a lovely picnic spot with a relaxing yet elegant feel to it.
The tower was built in 1964, designed by an artist, temple restoration expert and antique collector from Damsui, Taipei named Zhuang Wu-nan. Climb up to the 3rd floor for panoramic views of the lake, and refreshing breezes in the summer.
Gugang Lake is Kinmen's last remaining natural lake. Surrounded by hills and willow trees, it's habitat for aquatic birds. You might also spot the distinctive brown-striped Eurasian hoopoe on the grass between the lake and the tower.
