Since my hotel is located in Taipei (Northern Taiwan), I have to travel to Taichung (Central Taiwan) via the THSR (Taiwan High Speed Rail) or what the locals call as Gao-tie (高鐵). Price of the one-way ticket from Taipei to Taichung is NTD 765 (approximately SGD32).
The journey took exactly 49 minutes.
So from the station, you can either take a bus (which takes longer) or a taxi to Sun Moon Lake, located at the centre of Nantou County (南投縣).
I actually took a taxi there in order to save time. It took me approximately 1hr 15min.
The picturesque view of Sun Moon Lake!
I heard raves about Sun Moon Lake and I can say the place is above my expectation!
I ordered deep fried food and it has a distinguish taste from the night markets in my opinion.
So if you are someone who loves aboriginal culture and beautiful scenery, Sun Moon Lake will definitely not disappoint.
