Discover the mountain town of Juifen, known for the narrow alleyways and its old town centre brimming with local tea shops and teahouses.

Learn all the secrets of tea making and create your very own blend of tea when you stop at the Hugo Assam Tea Farm, a vintage tea factory near the banks of the striking Sun Moon Lake.

Take one of the most breathtaking bike rides along the banks of Sun Moon Lake – the largest body of fresh water in Taiwan and one of the island’s most impressive sights. Surrounded by the green peaks of Taiwan’s Central Mountain Ranges, Sun Moon lake is one of the thirteen national scenic areas in Taiwan. If a bike ride is not your thing, enjoy a walk along the crystal-clear waters and through the lush gardens surrounding the lake, and soak up some spectacular scenery.
