Sun Moon Lake

Duration
2 Days
Prices From:
US$ 244

A lake in an exceptional setting and known for its natural beauty, this area gives the impression of a Chinese landscape painting while experiencing several cultural and historical sites.


Sun-Moon Lake is located in the centre of the country and is known for not only its beauty but also its verdant mountains and crystal clear emerald green water in which the surrounded hills and mountains are reflected. It is the largest natural lake in Taiwan half shaped like the sun and half shaped like the crescent of the moon.

On arrival at Sun-Moon Lake from Taipei, visit the Wen Wu Temple built on the lake in 1938, the Tse En Pagoda perched on a hill overlooking the lake, the Holy Monk Shrine which contains the remains of a monk from the Tang Dynast era and the delightful tourist town of Puli where you will overnight.

The next morning, travel to Lukang, once an important sea port with much history and culture and boasting over 200 temples. Later return to Taipei.
