Photos by Paul Schultz

Note: Taiwan's Pescadore Islands (also known as the "Penghu Islands") are an archipelago of 64 islands in the Taiwan Strait about 25 to 30 miles west of Taiwan's southwest coast (center of map below). The islands are named after its biggest island, Penghu, which is where the capital Makung is located. Makung is about 40 minutes from Taipei by air.
