Ever heard of a slumber party among marine life? Sleeping next to the zoo and waking up next to giraffes? Children, as well as animals lovers of all ages, are bound to enjoy these three most unique animal experiences in Taiwan that KKday is showing you. Time to take advantage of summer and bring those animal books to life! (Photo: Scott Benjamin)
1. Yilan, Turtle Island and Whale Watching

While whale and dolphin watching tours aren’t available in every country, Taiwan is surrounded by the sea, making it the prime spot to catch whales and dolphins. The cruise sets sail several times a day during the whale and dolphin watching season, allowing tourists to greet the lively marine creatures near to their natural habitats, causing minimal disturbance to their yearly commute past Yilan.
2. Sleepover in Kenting Aquarium
A sleep over in Kenting‘s aquarium will definitely your most unique night in Taiwan. Although most Taiwanese aren’t aware of the existence of this activity (say what?!), the beds are limited during the peak season. KKday advices you to plan and book ahead to avoid disappointment!
3. Leofoo Resort Guanshi

If you love the dream of running a zoo with your child like in the movie “We Bought a Zoo”, you’ll love Leofoo Resort Guanshi, Asia’s only eco resort that allows you to have a first-hand experience of what it feels like to live in a zoo! When morning comes, you’ll hear birds chirping and insects buzzing around. The best part? A giraffe stands outside your room, waiting for you to get up and greet him.
If someone ever teased you for having no childhood, it’s not too late to relive your adolescence! These activities are bound to leave good memories for animal lovers, families and everyone young at heart.
