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!
Love the scenery and food! Five stars!
It was a very nice Experience in Taiwan! Thanks a lot.Very nice People arround and on the Tour.
Greetings from Germany!
All in all this tour gives you a good overview of the beauty of Taiwan. Unfortunately we went in the main vacation week and had a very big group of 23 people joining. With this also came a very very noisy big bus. I actually travelled with ear plugs. Also, at one point the bus stopped for gas after two minutes driving. Why not get gas before you pick up a group?
Due to the big group, the informations at sites was limited and always bilingugal. (Chinese/English)
The toilet stops were sometimes made at some sales point for fruit or tea at higher prices.
The Fluer du Chine hotel is very nice, but remote, so either you eat before or expensive at the hotel (the guide mentioned this beforehand, so you can decide if you like dinner at 5pm or later at a higher price)
The other hotel was not as nice, but very central and nice.
