Sun Moon Lake

The Sun Moon Lake, located in the middle of Taiwan, with an elevation of 748 meters above sea level, is the only natural big lake in Taiwan. The southern part of Lalu Island is shaped like a new moon, and the northern part is shaped like a sun; hence the name Sun Moon Lake.

Miyahara

Miyahara was established in 1927 and soon became the largest ophthalmology clinic in the Taichung area. However, as time passed, the old and run down clinic gradually turned into an unsafe structure. Later, Taichung’s cake and confectionary enterprise, Richu, moved in and remodeled the space by adding modern equipment and design elements, and turning it into the company's most popular flagship store. When you visit Miyahara, you must try its signature ice cream. The numerous flavors and secret recipe make it irresistible.

Jiufen Village

Jiufen was once a major gold mining town and is now a popular spot for tourists to experience a taste of history. The name “Jiufen”, which literally means “nine pieces” in Mandarin, comes from a legend whenever one family goes grocery shopping, they would buy nine portions for other eight families.

Beitou Hot Spring Museum

This museum is housed in public hot spring bath built during the Japanese colonial era. The Tudor-style building has a brick and wood façade and black tile roof set picturesquely in the surrounding greenery. The building had fallen into a deep state of disrepair when local preservationists saved it from demolition. This is a good spot to learn about Beitou's rich hot spring culture and history.

Thermal Valley

Located beside Beitou Hot Spring Park, Thermal Valley is one of the sources supplying the area’s hot springs. The sulfuric steam that blankets the valley year-round gives the valley a frightening quality, giving rise to nicknames like “Ghost Lake.” The springs here have the highest temperatures of any in the Datunshan volcano group. With its surreal sulfuric atmosphere, it’s no wonder Thermal Valley was considered one of the “12 great sights of Taiwan” during the Period of Japanese Occupation!

Day5

There is also a bikeway by the wharf for riverside cycling in scenic and historic Dadaocheng.

The building has been used as the presidential mansion after the central government of R.O.C. was re-instated in Taiwan.
