Why Should I Go?

Magong Airport is one of the main gateways to visit the Penghu archipelago, located on the western part of the main Penghu Island. As of late 2012, the airport now runs multiple flights daily to various locations on Taiwan, other locations in the archipelago, and ever-increasing Cross-Strait flights to Mainland China.

How to Get There?

A taxi ride from the airport to the city of Magong (馬公, Mǎgōng) will cost exactly NT$300. However, if you are able to telephone and book a taxi the cost drops down to exactly NT$200. It is easier to ask a friend who can speak Chinese to telephone ahead for a taxi to meet you at the airport. Note: Taxi drivers do not speak English. Also, taxis do not use meters in Penghu (even if you can see one!), so make sure to ask the cost to your destination before you set off.
Many hotels in Penghu offer pick-up and drop-off both to and from the Magong Airport.

What Else?

On some older signage, Magong may be spelled Makung or something similar.
