We arrived at Lukang Beach around past 9am. First step we did is to lay our mat. Renting cottage is not practical, since we are only two and we will stay there for few hours. We learned that beyond 5pm, public transports in Bgy Polo are like invisibles, meaning, and no way to get out from Lukang Beach. Scary heh!
