The
Tropic of Cancer cuts across central Taiwan, dividing this beautiful island
between the tropical and subtropical zone, with unique landscapes and rich
produce/natural resources of different climates. The Tropic of Cancer cuts
through Shuishang Township (Chiayi County) and Ruisui and Fengbin Townships
(Hualien County), all of which have landmarks on the line. Another landmark
is being planned for construction around Dongshi Fisherman’s Wharf, scheduled
for completion by April 2013. It will be the westernmost one on Taiwan
island. The shape is based on the sun and sea atmosphere of Fisherman’s
Wharf, with the number N23.5 transforming into two hearts, Cupid, wedding
carriages, and other symbols of love. Romantic sculptures line the unique
Tropic of Cancer Boulevard, marking the 23.5 degree north latitude line. The
pathway also includes a world map of the countries crossed by the Tropic of
Cancer, giving visitors the opportunity to appreciate the art while learning
about the topic.
