TAIWAN / Little Liouciou - Vase Crag

This is famous flower vase crag.
Vase Crag is a coral limestone about nine meters high. Some people called it the guardian of Little Liouciou, which has been heavily visited by domestic and foreign tourists alike. Vase Crag is located at the end of the northeastern side of White Sand Beach next to Basha Harbor. It is only about 300 meters away from the highway circling the island. Vase Crag totally resembles to a vase! Because of the flower clusters and the green grass growing on the top of rock, it appears quite similar to a vase filled with flowers and green leaves. That is how Vase Crag gets its name from.
It is a quite fascinating experience that Vase Crag blends in perfectly with the deep sapphire waters and displays a different kind of charm depending on the time of the day. In the morning, it looks like a shining jewel in the shimmering blue waters; at night, it seems like a guardian watching over the residents on the island.
