Spent the day touring around Sun Moon lake, did the cable car, boat taxi, enjoyed a nice lunch, took a bike ride and a nice quiet dinner. Really beautiful place in the middle of Taiwan.

The lake was really cool and visitors have to board ferries to get around the lake to see the various attractions like the Temples And pagodas. Would highly recommend to make it up to the pagoda to get a Arial view of the lake.

Beautiful location. Fabulous scenery. Calm sunny warm autumn day - 26 degrees. Well worth the 2 hour bus ride each way from Taichung Nantou Bus office. We opted for a package that included - return bus ticket - boat trips on lake (seems unlimited stops)...More
