Why Sun moon lake (SML)
Sun Moon Lake is must visit place in Taichung. Why Taichung? This might be the question people ask, when they travel to Asia. There are many countries with the rich culture like Japan, endangered pandas in China. My answer is that in few years I realised, I am the big fan of nature. I want to take rest from hustle and bustle from the city life. Taiwan has two nature reserve places one is Taroko National Park and other is Sun moon lake. We didn’t have time to visit both as both places. They are in opposite direction and needed at least 1-week itinerary to visit each. We embarked SML from Tokyo.
