Taipei to Sun Moon Lake
Day 1: Taipei - Puli - Sun Moon Lake
Between 8 and 8:30 am you'll be picked up from your hotel in Taipei. Our first stop will be in Puli, where we'll visit a traditional Taiwanese winery. Here we'll get to know how the local wines are made. After discovering its secrets, we'll have an hour for lunch.
From Puli we'll head to the famous Sun Moon Lake. Here we'll appreciate impressive treasures such as the Wenwu Temple, where we'll be greeted by a giant lion. Did you know that in popular culture this animal is seen as a symbol of protection? Continuing on the banks of the lake we'll stop at the Ci'en Pagoda. Its immense height, no less than 9 floors, will leave you speechless. Only a few metres away from this standout structure is the Xuanzhuang Temple, which is another fundamental spiritual centre of Sun Moon Lake.
Finally, we'll visit the Thao tribe village and the Xiangshan Visitor Centre. The lookout point offers some spectacular views of the natural environment! In the evening we'll arrive at a four-star hotel located on the borders of Sun Moon Lake, where you'll have dinner and stay the night.
Day 2: Sun Moon Lake - Lukang - Taipei
After having breakfast at the hotel, we'll leave the beautiful scenery at Sun Moon Lake and go to the historic Taiwanese city of Lukang. In the picturesque historic centre, we'll visit the Lugang Longshan and Tianhou Temples, whose history will help us understand the region's legendary past. To conclude the tour of Lukang you'll have an hour of free time to enjoy the delicious local cuisine at your leisure.
