Sun Moon Lake Reviews
je kan het meer op allerlei manieren ontdekken: rondwandelen, met de bus, de boot, de kabelbaan, de fiets of een motorfiets. Het mooie is wanneer je meerdere van deze manieren gebruikt more »You can explore the lake in a variety of ways: walking around, by bus, boat, cable car, bike or motorbike. The beauty is when you use multiple of these ways
台中からバスで２時間のところにあり、日帰りも可能ですが宿泊しました。 ついてまずはボートに乗って対岸の伊達部へいきました。 日月譚ではこちらのほうがにぎやかで、店も多い気がしました。おいしそうな屋台がいくつも並んでいて飽きないです。ロープウェーから見る湖の眺めはとてもきれいです。 翌日は湖畔をサイクリングしましたが、とても気持ちがよかったです。 ただ、夜は店も早く閉まり寂しいところなので、退屈かも... more »It is located two hours by bus from Taichung, and it is possible to stay for a day trip. First of all, I got on a boat and went to Datebe on the opposite bank. I felt that there were many shops here and there were more shops here. There are a lot of delicious stalls lined up and I don't get tired of it. The view of the lake from the ropeway is very beautiful. The next day we cycled on the lakeside, but it was very comfortable. However, it may be boring because the shop closes early at night and it is lonely.
Although the cycling track is very famous among the people; I really don't liked it much. The track is non continuous or may be I mistook the way. Often you have to look for some random cars coming on your way. However, I liked the lake and ride on the boat
A beautiful lake with few hiking trails around. You can go biking or just cruising the boat around the lake. Also a good place to view cherry blossom during spring.
