Sun Moon Lake 日月潭
Next we went to Sun Moon Lake. It rained the whole time, and it was foggy. We checked out the shops there, but didn’t find anything we particular wanted to buy. We went to the 慈恩塔(Ci En Pagota), but we couldn’t see much because of the fog. And we took a power nap there. Then we went to the main temple on the lake, which was impressive, but not unlike any other temple we had seen. We had enough time, so we decided to go to Lugang （鹿港） from there. It took a while to find the night market in Lugang, but we eventually did. There we found a scroll shop and each bought landscape painting scrolls and had fun bargaining with the owner, and ended up buying scrolls for 500 kuai a piece. We had some delicious shrimp and some good 便當。Then we made our way back to Nantou for the night.
We are US Expats that have extensive experience living, working, and travelling in Taiwan. In our day, we had to learn many things about Taiwan the hard way. But we have come to learn that Taiwan is one of the best places in the world for Foreigners to live. Our blog does not represent the opinions of every foreigner in Taiwan. We are just trying to help others learn more about this beautiful country.
