3-Day Tour of Sun Moon Lake, Puli, Lukang and Alishan National Scenic Area from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The three day tour to Sun Moon Lake, Puli, Lukang, and Alishan National Scenic Area was fantastic! We were lucky to be the only ones on the tour, so we were able to see even more than the scheduled stops on the itinerary. Our tour guide was flexible and when we asked he helped us buy tickets to take a ferry across Sun Moon Lake, even though that was not a scheduled activity. We also made additional stops at a tea store, plum wine store, and ceramic factory. The handmade paper factory was really interesting and we enjoyed the hands-on opportunity to print on the paper for unique souvenirs. Sun Moon Lake and Alishan National Scenic Area were breathtaking! We loved both of the hotels, especially the Fleur de Chine hotel at Sun Moon Lake where we enjoyed the Japanese style room with a balcony view of the lake, the delicious local foods prepared at the hotel restaurant, and the fun pools and hot springs. This tour was a lot of driving and the scenic mountaintop roads were sometimes frightening, but our trip to Taiwan would not have been complete without seeing these beautiful sites!

Northern Coast Half-Day Tour including Yehliu Park from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The half day tour of the Northern Coast was great! The temple in Keelung was one of our favorite temples, offering a beautiful view of the harbor and impressive statues of Buddha and the Goddess of Mercy. The park at Yehliu was interesting to see the unique rock formations, but very crowded with tourists and surprising how people were allowed to step off the walkways to walk around and touch the formations. It is funny how every rock formation is said to look like some animal or object. Although it surprised us how the natural beauty of the rock formations had the feel of a theme park, it was still a fun tour to explore the Northern Coast.

Chiufen Village (Jiufen) and Northeast Coast Half-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The half day tour to Chiufen Village and the Northeast coast was a lot of fun! We enjoyed the drive along the coast and many stops for beautiful photographs of the coastline and rock formations. We had about an hour to explore Chiufen Village, which was a bit rushed but still enough time to do some shopping. The main shopping street was crowded with tourists, but it was fun to be part of the crowd enjoying the food stands and little shops. The views from the hilltop village were amazing. This is a unique place, not to be missed!

Taroko Gorge Full-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I highly recommend the full day tour to Taroko Gorge! Josephine was a fabulous tour guide- full of enthusiasm and knowledge about the areas we toured. The transportation was well organized and comfortable, from the convenient hotel pick-up/drop-off, to the plane ride, air-conditioned bus, and train ride back. Taroko Gorge was stunning and we have many beautiful pictures! We also enjoyed the delicious lunch as well as the stops at the temple, beach, and marble factory.
