  • One of the famous place in Taiwan you can visit. The soon moon lake is beautiful, you must take a boat trip to get there, it will stop for two island, the first one you can see the lake from the top of mountain. In the mean time you can have the egg which cooked with tea, it was nice. The second island you can have lunch there, it’s a lots of street food of the native dishes. The black tea here was nice too. We enjoy the time here.
  • Beautiful lake with quite a lot of things to do around
