Sun Moon Lake

Sun Moon Lake is Taiwans largest and most beautiful lake- that is, when you should believe all the honeymooners and tourists who come over there. The clear blue water invites for swimming, but because this is not allowed, youll have to rent a boat and make a trip to the Kuanghua Island on the western side of the lake (or grab your chance when water skiing).
It will take at least a day to see all the sights around the lake. There are several temples, such as the Wenwu Temple (dedicated to Confucius and Kuankung) and the Hsuanchuang Temple. Peacock Park is a mini zoo where you can visit the Butterfly Museum and have your picture taken at an idyllic spot. Tehuashe Aboriginal Village is located at the far end of the lake.

Make the effort of rising early in the morning to catch a glimpse of Jade Mountain reflected in the water, just after the morning mists have disappeared.
