  • 日月潭(sun moon lake) 坐落在台湾的南投县浴池乡。 在中山路上有一些酒店和民宿。距游客中心大约100米左右,有一栋3层小楼名叫游丫嬷邻家民宿。非常干净舒适,价钱公道。游丫嬤的名字叫许玉兰,热情友善。  more »

  • Situated at the Sun Moon Lake vicinity. If you take the ferry, probably you will hike up through a forest to access this temple. You can get a nice view of the lake from this temple.  more »
