Hotel Review 3: Itathao Hotel

Itathao Hotel is extremely close to the Ita Thao pier in Sun Moon Lake. It is one of the small hotels on the island so it can be tricky to spot at first. 247 more words

WHAT THE FOG... CINGJING & SUN MOON LAKE, TAICHUNG

The weather sadly isn’t any better than yesterday — foggy and rainy. Since it was our last day in CingJing so we headed to the farm anyway though soon we realised it was an awful decision. 656 more words

Taiwan Holidays – Sun Moon Lake

The drive down from Alishan Mountain was scary: the dense clouds and thick rain meant we couldn’t see the car in front. Thankfully the mini bus driver was going very slowly and we made it to the bottom in one piece. 186 more words

台灣之旅---日月潭

玩完清境,我地坐包車去日月潭留一晚。 原本呢晚都係留清境,然後直接去阿里山。後來怕清境留得耐會悶便改去日月潭。最後事實證明呢個選擇是正確的。

由清境包車出發,大約個半鐘就到了。 包車送我們到飯店樓下,因為未到下午三點,即酒店check in時間,所以我們要把行李放在一旁。整頓後就出發開始行程了。

遊日月潭必先買船票游湖。湖有三個落腳點,分別是1)水社碼頭,即我們上船的地方及最熱鬧的地方,2)玄光寺及3)伊達邵碼頭。船家只會1,2,3站走,如果你從2下船回去1,就得先3再回去1囉。船票都是一天的,不用擔心買不到票。

據說湖水漲時,從天空可看到一邊是日,一邊是月的形狀,因此取名為日月潭。不過在那裡開了十多年船的船家都說從未見過這狀況,well, 真是天知道了\(╯-╰)/ 。

我們順著去玩,先來到第二站玄光寺。玄光寺建於一個小島上。但島上滿滿是大陸人,拾級而上全都是大陸旅行團,非常熱鬧。沿路擺了很多法輪功路攤,他們都靜靜的,放個易拉架在路邊,站在旁邊派單張,冇人理時就在路邊練功,蠻寫意的。 玄光寺是記念取西經的玄奘法師所建。玄奘法師的舍利子還真是放在裏面受人供奉,因此玄光寺並不是為製造景點而興建的! 島上還建有步道,就在玄光寺後面,寥無人煙,跟熙來攘往的玄光寺成莫大對比。 走了一圈後就乘船到伊達邵去了。

伊達邵是台灣其中一個小數民族的稱呼,乘船途中,那些現代化了的邵族導遊都會教你兩句風土語如何殺價等。不過船上乘客反應認真麻麻,他們都習慣了,所以常常自說自話似的。 伊達邵主要景點是纜車,從碼頭沿岸向右一直行約20分鐘就到。最後一程纜車是五時,我們去到已經四時多了,下車後在九族民化村村口,連入去參觀都未夠時間,就在纜車站走了一圈便回程走了。

回到飯店後打算直接上房,但我們的行李卻原封不動的在大堂,要自提行李上房,那算是什麼酒店呀?就連基本服務都沒有。 搬了行李上房後安頓一下。酒店有個窗台,望出去的風景的確不錯,廁所乾淨還是首要條件。最好的是有獨立冷氣,我們把收藏了好幾天的衣服都一次過洗好吹乾! 晚上回飯店,圍著最熱鬧的市中心走了一圈,都沒有發現什麼好餐廳,最後還是回到飯店餐廳裏去光顧它的邵族晚餐。 12 more words

A Photo Journey Through the Island of Taiwan

My parents and I took a 7 day tour in Taiwan. And while I definitely can’t say that I’ve been everywhere in Taiwan – it’s safe to say that we did hit up on a lot of cities all around the country. 587 more words

Atayal Resort, Taiwan *** out of ****
