Sun Moon Lake, Nantou
(3.8/5 based on 1,500+ 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. Hike the surrounding trails, which lead to interesting sites like a Chinese style pagoda, Thao villages, and a grand temple. 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.

  • Boat, we went sightseeing. In the morning, during the day, evening and an empty feeling concerned location. The Sun on the Lake during the sunset was beautiful.

  • 日月潭的名氣很大,是台灣知名的旅行景點。去看一看總不會錯 在住宿上,景區附近住宿比較貴,山下很便宜。但是景點附近的吃的也不錯而去價格也不貴。 好看又好玩,風景很美,附近的自行車步道也很棒。游船要做的 講解會很有趣。 
  • Only were an afternoon touring the perimeter of the Lake in bicycle by a road ready for pedestrians and bikes. It is beautiful and it is worthwhile to spend a night.
