I spend one day I spent a day at Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. It was one of the places I absolutely wanted to see in Taiwan. Although located in the mountains, once again in Taiwan, it is very easy to find a nice bus to reach the site. Approx. 1 hour 30 minutes from Taichung to reach the lake.
Arrived there I took a bike. Indeed it is possible to go around the lake by bike because it is very well laid out, it is even what is recommended. So I traveled the 35 km of the track around the lake on a rented bike for about 8 € a day. There is plenty of beautiful place to see and it was really nice. In addition the lake is located in altitude, so it is cooler and during the hot season it is clearly felt. The tour is ideal for a day from Taichung. But it is also possible to rent a room around the lake and stay longer.
Sun Moon Lake is renowned for being the largest lake in Taiwan, Sun Moon Lake must be one of the must-see destinations in central Taiwan. This lake is shaped like a round sun to the east and crescent moon to the west, hence the name Sun Moon Lake.
With its lush mountains and calm, sparkling waters, Sun Moon Lake is a place for serenity. Offering beautiful scenery, Sun Moon Lake is a breathtaking attraction that includes an island in the center of the lake, known as Lalu, known as a popular hub for couples to bond. In addition to incredible mountain views, Sun Moon Lake is also home to 7 hiking trails, and offers many outdoor activities and a pleasant year-round climate.
