If you want to find cottage life in Taiwan as a vacationer, go to Sun Moon Lake. Simply stunning and beautiful. Quiet and peaceful, you can eat the many local food stands, go on a biking trail, go hike, hop on a ferry and explore the different islands around the area.
hold on, what exactly is Sun Moon lake? Well it’s lake that is surrounded by a lot of mountains. And apparently the reason why it’s called Sun Moon Lake is because on a clear day, you can see both the sun and moon. Pretty cool. Unfortunately it was cloudy the way we went. Still didn’t put a damper on our day though!
We went biking of course, which costed about NTD100 per hour, per person. It was okay, not too expensive. We biked along a trail, which wasn’t that long as it only took us about 30 minutes to complete.
And we stopped a lot too. So yeah, not too bad.
Where we stayed at Sun Moon lake was on another island, which means we had to take the ferry. There are a LOT of ferry services that is provided here, so don’t you worry not being able to get on. And here’s a selfie picture of me on the ferry =)
I think one thing you will be doing a lot is taking pictures of the surrounding areas, both during the day and at night:
And finally, if you want to just relax go to one of the bubble tea places and just sit back and rewind. Not a bad way to spend your time!
Super recommend Sun Moon lake for all you love birds, and people that just want some peace and quiet.
