ITINERARY

  • Day 1:

    Taipei to Taroko Gorge

    Our tour begins with a drive down the stunning east coast, where towering cliffs meet the ocean before turning inland to spend a full day in geologically stunning Taroko National Park. Best known for being the home of visually stunning Taroko Gorge, the park is also a treasure trove of rivers and waterfalls, cliffs and trails, tunnels and temples. We'll hike, sightsee, and explore the gorge, perhaps even seeing some of the local monkeys who call the area home before retiring for the night at a 4-star hotel.

  • Day 2:

    Taroko Gorge to Sun Moon Lake

    After breakfast in the hotel, we'll head higher still, across the island's mountainous spine. While the drive is long, we'll take many breaks for sightseeing, photography, and soaking in panoramic views. We'll stop to touch the trunk of the Bilu sacred tree, said to date back to biblical times. After reaching the top, we'll descend into the valley, reaching magical Sun Moon Lake, the island's largest and most pristine body of water. Once at the lake, we'll relax and unwind with a traditional tribal meal before checking into a 3-star hotel with a view of the lake.

  • Day 3:

    Sun Moon Lake

    Yesterday was about travel, so today is about staying put and exploring Sun Moon Lake to the fullest. We'll travel across the lake on a pleasure boat, hike through a magnificent grove of climbing bamboo, and visit the serene Xuanguang temple, a major pilgrimage site for followers of the Buddhist faith. We'll have great meals, and do a cycling trip around the lake (listed as one of the top ten cycling routes in the world by CNN Travel) before heading back to our 3-star lake view hotel.

  • Day 4:

    Sun Moon Lake to Alishan

    On the journey's fourth day we'll say goodbye to Sun Moon Lake and head deeper into the mountains. Our goal for the day is the Alishan scenic area, but the landscape through which we’ll be passing is so beautiful that we’ll take our time, stopping for a tribal meal with a great view first followed by a visit to a well known tea farm, where we’ll walk a trail passing through some of Taiwan’s most beloved tea fields. Once we get to Alishan, we’ll take a ride on the narrow gauge Alishan mountain rail before checking in for the night at the historic Alishan House Hotel.

  • Day 5:

    Alishan to Taipei

    It's the final day of the tour, and you’ll want to get up early to enjoy the sunrise in Alishan, for it’s only at this time of day that you’ll be treated to a view of the “sea of clouds” for which the area is justly known. The morning will be taken up by hiking through the high mountain forests of the area, including past a cypress tree that’s said to be a thousand years old. After lunch, we’ll head to a tea house called Alishanwin for tea with tremendous views before heading back to Taipei City.

We will certainly tell our friends the best way to see the sights in Taiwan

The highlight of our visit to Taiwan was the MyTaiwan tour to 3 of the most spectacular natural wonders of the country: Taroko Gorge, Sun Moon Lake, and the Alishan area, but a huge part of why we enjoyed it so much was because our tour guide, Bill Wang, was also spectacular. For one thing, he knows a great deal about the landscape and history, and is a wonderful story teller. He clearly loves what he does and it is contagious. He seemed to enjoy our questions, no matter how many, and we had great conversations. He'd give some information, and the question in my head was always why, but I didn't have to ask because he posed his own why, and answered himself with enthusiasm. I'm learning Chinese, and he helped me a lot, especially with fine points I could not get from my text books. He is also a very good driver and patient with difficult situations like fog on mountain roads, and heavy traffic in Taipei at the end of the journey, and he remained cheerful through all of that. He was very attentive to our needs and wants. If we wanted to linger some place that wasn't on the itinerary, no problem, he easily changed plans according to our desires. He was attentive in other ways too. When I had a cold and couldn't find a decongestant easily nearby, Bill came out of his hotel to see if I needed to go to a doctor. It was just a cold! Everyone was so kind, assembling fruit drinks, hot tea, fresh fruit. It was hard to say goodbye at the end of the journey, because we felt like good friends by then. So we were very pleased with our tour and so lucky to have had Bill for a guide. We will certainly tell our friends the best way to see the sights in Taiwan.
