Within the Tropic of Capricorn, the weather here is hot and humid in summer but mild as regulated by the ocean in autumn and winter. Look at a map of Pingtung and you will find that its shape is narrow and long. From the north to the south, the county is rich in unrivaled landscapes: the imposing Central Mountains, the overwhelming waterfalls often hidden in the high mountainsand spacious oceanic views.

Pingtung owns four important forest parks: Shuankuei Lake Nature Reserve, Mount Tawu Nature Reserve, Chinshuiyin Nature Reserve, and Mount Chachayalai Nature Reserve. The county is surrounded by the ocean on three sides giving ecology research conducted on its seashore much valued data. Its clean and peaceful beaches cradled along its long coastline are a paradise for summer leisure activities on and in its waters.

As the home of the Paiwan and Lukai tribes, Pingtung's Sandimen boasts in having an authentic aboriginal culture manifested in traditional houses built on stone plates, plus distinctive tattoos and delicate wood sculptures found in remote villages scattered in the mountains.

Along the seashore on the west side, simple and attractively unadorned fishing villages offer abundant fresh seafood. Centuries-old sites such as the Tunglong Temple contain much history and various scenic spots on "Little Okinawa" (Hsiau Liouchiou), subscribe to the charm of this tropical county.
