Wandan Township in Pingtung County

Wandan Township (Chinese: 萬丹鄉; pinyin: Wàndān Xiāng; Wade–Giles: Wan4-tan1 Hsiang1) is a rural township in Pingtung County, Taiwan.[1]


Dutch records used the placenames Tamsuy and Tampsui to refer to Tamsui in the north of the island, but have also referred to this area in the south as "Tamsuy".[2] In the early 20th century, maps showed two Tamsuy rivers, one north and one south; the Chinese would distinguish the two places by calling the north place Teng Tamsuy (upper Tamsui) and the south place E Tamsuy (lower Tamsui).


It has a population total of 52,085 and an area of 57.4679 square kilometers.
