Taipei excursions

Sun Moon Lake

Sun Moon Lake is best as an overnight trip as waking up to the mist over the lake at Taipei's most luxurious hotel, The Lalu (www.thelalu.com.tw), is part of the experience. Temples dot the shore and a rowing boat takes you to tiny Lalu Island. Both tours are offered by The Golden Foundation (www.gftours.com.tw).

Taroko Gorge

The spectacular marble canyon of Taroko Gorge in one of Taiwan's seven National Parks is the most popular day excursion. It includes a walk through tunnels and across a rope bridge below towering cliffs and visits to Taiwan's most picturesque temple.
