Itinerary

  • Day 1:
    Depart from Taipei and head towards the famous Sun Moon Lake as this deep blue lake is a scenic place to be.

The Pagoda is 46 meters high and has become the famous landmark of Sun Moon Lake. Surrounding the tower are beautiful plants and trees and there are stone tables and chairs for visitors to take a rest.
  • Day 2:
    Head to the north-east of Dashu Township in Kaohsiung county to find a famous tourist destination known mostly for being the Buddhist center of South Taiwan. The architecture of the temples is very characteristic of Taiwan. At the southeastern side of Fo Gunag Mountain (Gunag Shan) Monastery sits the most prominent landmark of the region: a huge golden statue of Buddha Amitaabha which measures a staggering 120 meters! Of course no trip to Kaohsiung is complete without a visit to the Liuhe Tourist Night Market for an opportunity to taste the papaya milk and steamed salty shrimps in Kaohsiung. 
  • Day 3:
    Head from Kaohsiung to Kending and make the first stop of the day at Eluanbi Park light house. Kending's rugged coastline provides some of the area's most outstanding attractions.

The area is an excellent landform classroom with various scarps, reef columns, sea trenches, sea erosion caves and pot holes, which you also find in Longpan Park as you continue onward. The highlight of the day brings you to  Hengchun Town which is an entry way to Kenting National Park, the southernmost National Park in the country. With pristine beaches and a vibrant tourist industry, the Hengchun area often attracts more travelers than local residents. The day ends as you spend the night in Taitung.

  • Day 5:
    Begin your day with a visit to Taroko National Park famous for its spectacular mountains and marble canyons and the special geography has also bred special flora and fauna in this area.
