Although this huge rock in shape of elephant trunk is not marked on usual map yet, the place could be expected being near Shenao Fishing Port (深澳漁港) from relation among its name and the port. However, as there is no road sign clarifying the direction, most people would be led to Chief Cliff (酋長岩) by crowds. Indeed, it is just right behind Chief Cliff and you might pass through roadblock set at opposite entrance of the fishing port to reach the place. Except for mushroom rocks which share similar characteristic of the one at Yehliu (野柳), you could see people enjoying their time by different means, some are sitting on rock to watch the sea, others are fishing, and still others are taking selfie with those strange yellow stones. Within 5 minutes, this long, long elephant trunk is in front of your eyes.
BEST TIME TO GO
LOCATION AND HOW TO REACH
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.

One of the things that struck me about this movie is that whilst the focus is on learning to communicate with the aliens, that's not all that's going on. Look at the scenes where Louise talks to Colonel Weber about what she's doing. She and he look at the world in different ways - they are also alien to one another, and she is using examples and stories - even made up ones like the "Kangaroo" story - to bridge a gap in understanding with him and his superiors, exactly like she's having to do with Humans and the Heptapods. And on a larger scale, the different nations with Heptapod ships in them all have different philosophies and ways of doing things, different ways of understanding the situation. And they also have to overcome those gulfs and communicate with one another to arrive at the solution. So the movie is about communication not just with the heptapods, but on at least three different levels. The message seems to be that we are ALL aliens to one another, and the key to overcoming those divides is learning to communicate so that we can bridge the gaps in understanding between us.
