What To Expect
After pick-up from hotel, we travel by bus to Nantou, to visit Puli, a cultural and artistic heaven at the center of Taiwan. With an elevation between 380-700 meters, Puli is a basin surrounded by rising and falling mountains, hills and farmland. The most famous tourist spots include the Puli Brewery Factory, Guangxing (Guangshing) Paper Manufactory, and Chung Tai Chan Monastery; its special products (fine food) are wild rice stems, passion fruit, red sugar canes, rice-noodles, and Shaoxing wine.
Next, we will visit the Sun Moon Lake, the only natural big lake in Taiwan, with an elevation of 748 meters above sea level. The southern part of Lalu Island is shaped like a new moon, and the northern part is shaped like a sun; hence the name Sun Moon Lake.
We will also visit the most famous sights around Sun Moon Lake such as the Holy Monk Shrine, Tehua Village, the Ci-en Pagoda, and the Wenwu Temple.

From Sun Moon Lake, we will head to historical and cultural town of Lukang, where streets are made up of the curved, red-tiled lanes of today's Putou, Yaolin, and Dayou streets. Both sides of the streets are lined with newly renovated old-style shop buildings that feature intensely interesting internal room layouts and old-style exteriors. Here you can feel some of the atmosphere of old Lugang.
To end the tour, we will make our way back to Taipei via bus or train.
