Tour Stops
Sun Moon LakeSun Moon Lake is one of the eight top scenic sites in Taiwan, and for good reason. The lake is set in a natural landscape of jaw-dropping beauty, which can be enjoyed by boat, car or along the many trails here.


Wen Wu TempleWen Wu Temple is located at the shoulder of mountain where is on the north of Sun Moon Lake. It was built in 1938. People worried the water of Sun Moon Lake might cover Lungfung Temple and Ihuatang of Shuishotsun, they built Wen Wu Temple. The Wen Wu Temple is 2 (Lungfung Temple and Ihuatang) in 1. It was rebuilt in 1969. Its gate is face to the north. People pray the Civil Saint of Confucius, the Military Saint of Kuankung, and the Established God of two temples at the Wen Wu Temple. The temple is popular among students.


Cih-en PagodaSun Moon Lake Cih-en Pagoda is situated 954 meters above sea level on Shabalan Mountain. It was built by former President Chiang Kai-shek in memory of his mother. An engineering feat, the pagoda has become one of the most prominent landmarks at Sun Moon Lake. The name plaque at the entrance to the pagoda was penned by Chiang himself. The grave of the former president's mother is located in a palace-style villa in front of the pagoda.

Puli TownPuli is at the center of Taiwan. With an elevation between 380~700 meters, Puli is a basin surrounded by rising & falling mountains, hills and farmland. The most famous tourist spots include the Puli Brewery Factory, 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 Shaushing wine.

 

Lukang Historic AreaLukang is situated on the west-central coast of Taiwan, at the edge of the coastal plain. Although once a harbor, severe silting of the sea and the Lukang River have left it some distance form the shore. The climate is temperate to tropical; summers are hot with occasional thunderstorms, the spring and fall have moderate temperatures, and winters are cool. From September to the following March strong northeasterly monsoons blow in large amounts of sand and dust, forming what is known locally as the "September winds". Traditional Architecture The most fascinating aspect of Lukang is a number of ancient streets and lanes lined with old houses. The most unique of these are deep, narrow-fronted buildings that serve as stores and residences; this type of sky-lighted structure, however, can be seen today only at the Yuan Chang Shop on Chungshan Road, along Old Market Street, and at the Lukang Folk Arts Museum.

MaobitouLiterally "Cat's Nose", Maobitou is one of the two promontories that form the southernmost part of Taiwan, the other being the Eluanbi promontory. Not reaching quite so far south as Eluanbi, its claim to fame rests on the fact that the rocks here, which have been undermined and have fallen into the sea, are said to resemble a crouching cat.



Eluanbi LighthouseEluanbi is a plateau at the southernmost end of the Central Range. The 21-meter-high Eluanbi Lighthouse is one of the most impressive lighthouses in Taiwan. Known as the "East Asian Light," it is a historic preservation site. Eluanbi Park spreads out over a coral and limestone terrain rich in unusual formations, caves, and animal and plant life. Every September flocks of brown shrike stop here o¬n their migratory journey, attracting equally large flocks of birders.


Kenting National ParkThe centerpiece of the Hengchun Peninsula is Kenting National Park, Taiwan's only tropical national park. Established in 1982, Kenting National Park covers a total area of 33,268 hectares of land and maritime environments. This is Taiwan's most densely populated national park, and it includes large stretches of agricultural land's providing visitors with a view of typical Taiwanese rural life. In addition, the national park includes mountains, forests, pasture, lakes, sand dunes, beaches, and coral reefs imply everything you could desire when you want to get up front and personal with Mother Nature.

Kaohsiung CityLocated in the southern part of Taiwan, the city of Kaohsiung is the island's largest industrial center. It has stayed abreast of Taiwan's recent progress and prosperity; expanding and modernizing, the city strides into the 21st century as a newly emerging international metropolis. Beginnin centuries ago, Kaohsiung was called "Dagou" or "Dahgu, "transliterated from the name of local aborigines. Disturbed by the violence of pirates in the area, in 1563, the"Takuo"tribe eventually moved to the site of present-day Pingtung city. This name persisted until 1920,when the city's name was changed to Kaohsiung.

Cheng Cing LakeCheng Cing Lake is located in Kaohsiung County's Niaosong Township. It is the largest lake in the Kaohsiung area, developed originally as a reservoir to meet the need for water for industrial use. Later on the lake was improved through environmental landscaping, until today it offers the beauty of a forested park. It was opened to the public as a tourist destination in 1960. The surface of the lake has a water area of more than 300 hectares, and the highway that has been built around it stretches for a total of seven kilometers. The tranquil beauty of the area has led it to be given the sobriquet, "West Lake of Taiwan." The best known of the lake's attractions is probably its Bridge of Nine Turns, which was built in 1960; it is 230 meters long and 2.5 meters wide, and does indeed have nine turns.

分享圖片 Former British ConsulateThe former Ching means the Ching Dynasty while Taka is the ancient name of Kaohsiung. The consulate was built in 1865 with more than a hundred years of history. It is now the most antique western building preserved in Taiwan, which is listed as the second-class historic spot. It was the western building designed by a British engineer and built by Chinese craftsmen, and it is the most meaningful ancient building of Chinese modern history with graceful and elegant proportion. Semicircle arches are rhythmically arranged in order with considerably rhyming. At the corner, the circle arch is smaller and the wall pillar is bigger, which has reinforced function in dynamics. It is the Baroque typed building of the Renaissance era.

Sizih Bay (Sizihwan)Sizih Bay is perched on the sea at the western edge of Kaohsiung City, just southwest of Mt. Longevity, with the Qijin Peninsuna stretching southward. Its main feature is a swimming beach known for its clear blue water, the beauty of its sunsets, and its natural reef. The atmosphere and the scenery here change from morning to night; each time of the day has its special attraction, but the brilliant colors of the sunset are unparalleled in their beauty. The long breakwater here is the landmark of Sizih Bay, and basking in the sea breeze on the breakwater gives the most pleasant and comfortable sensation imaginable.


Spring & Autumn PavilionsTwo massive pavilions dedicated to Kuan Kung, the God of War, the Spring and Autumn Pavilions were completed in 1951. In front of the pavilions is a statue of Kuanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, riding a dragon. According to legend, Kuanyin appeared above the clouds riding on a dragon, signifying that believers must erect an image depicting this event between "pavilions of summer and autumn": The present-day structures are a result of this vision.
