Sun Moon Lake, Nantou

(3.9/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Famed for its sparkling blue waters set against a mountainous backdrop, Sun Moon Lake represents Taiwan's largest body of water.

You can also take a boat tour to visit Lalu Island, which aboriginal locals consider a sacred place. Generally quiet and off the beaten path, the area around the lake comes to life during festivities, which include laser shows, concerts, and fireworks.

  • 讓我們看到日月潭不一樣的美麗 早晨,夕陽,晚上的景色 原來可以這麼美,不同的地方有不同的感受,盡收眼底,美不勝收 
  • The view is well worth it. We have been under the Chinese new year and there was some confusion. However, we found the parking lot and took a ferry to visit the surrounding area. We also saw a bicycle and I think it's beautiful also turn the Lake. recommend a visit and remember that it's still a Lake, nothing great.

  • From Taichung, 九族 cultural village of Nantou bus round trip ticket with 900 went to buy in. So if you enter 九族 cultural village of Sun Moon Lake ropeway includes entrance, immediately went to the moon. Fine looks calm and Sun Moon Lake, Nice. It was so warm even in winter.
