Hengchun

Hengchun Township (Chinese: 恆春鎮) is an urban township located on the southern tip of the Hengchun Peninsula of Pingtung County, Taiwan. It is the southernmost township in Taiwan. Hengchun is also the only urban township in the southern part of Pingtung County. Hengchun has a land area of 136.76 square kilometres (52.80 sq mi) and has a population of 30,859 as of December 2014. The city of Hengchun is the entry way to Kenting National Park, the southernmost National Park in the country. With pristine beaches and a vibrant tourist industry, the Hengchun area often attracts more travelers than local residents. The city itself was once completely surrounded by a city wall; now about half of the wall remains intact, as well as the four city gates. On weekends, the streets of nearby Kenting are filled with cars and tour buses. The 2008 Taiwanese film Cape No. 7, the top-grossing film in Taiwan's film history, features Hengchun.
