Discover the villages and scenery that surround the Taipei area, traveling to Sun Moon Lake's temples and experiencing the varying flora of Alishan before checking out the folk street in Lukang.
Set out on a 3-day journey to explore the towns and attractions outside of Taipei itself, beginning with a trip to Puli—the geographic center of Taiwan and a haven of culture and art. Continue on to Sun Moon Lake and visit Wen-Wu Temple, dedicated to Confucius and Kuan-Ti and known as the literature and warrior temple. See the aboriginal town of Tehua Village on your way to Tse-En Pagoda and its panoramic view of Sun Moon Lake, and later, wind down the day's activities with a stop at the Holy Monk Shrine to take in more lake views while you learn about the great monk's devotions.
Your next day commences with breakfast and a drive to the New Central Cross Island Highway via Shui-Li. As you follow the mountain road, enjoy scenery consisting of grape vines, farms, and aboriginal villages. Travel from Sun Moon Lake's elevation of 2,460 feet (750 meters) to well over 6,561 feet (2,000 meters) above sea level, and take notice of the different vegetation that passes by during the climb. Once you arrive at Alishan, embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the Alishan National Scenic Area, making your way through the red cypress forest to visit Sisters Ponds, Shou-Chen Temple, and the Hsiang-Lin Primary School. Walk past the fallen giant Sacred Tree, then head toward the bus that will take you to Chiayi, where you can relax and enjoy the rest of the day on your own. Discover Lukang on the final day of this excursion, and explore the town's folk street—filled with snacks and local handicrafts—before returning to Taipei in the afternoon.
