Paotaishan Scenic Area, 200 meters in altitude, is located beside Suhua Highway. In 1889 as the French navies attempted to invade Su'ao, the Qing Emperor decided to build two coastal defense forts and a barracks to fend off the enemies in the future; from this, Paotaishan got its name. Paotaishan is located on a commanding high point and is a critical military base for coastal defense. The old banyan tress on the hill is lush and exuberant, providing shades for the travelers. Looking to the East from the hill, one will see a panoramic view of Su'ao Bay.
