Taiwan Tour Day 1: Sun Moon Lake 月日湖

Taiwan Tour Day 1: Sun Moon Lake 月日湖

Day 1 of the tour! Look at this awesome preview that Alan Chou put together. Lots of activities and things to see!

And look, a box of water to make sure we stay refreshed with the 80 F weather.

gotta know what’s up

There were 2 bus stops before we got to our destination. After a 1 hour drive, we stopped by a convenient store that had a food court on the second level. We tried looking for bubble tea and were not successful. There were a ton of toilets! After a 1:20 drive, we had a second stop. We sampled some flaky cakes and pork jerky along with the mini cup of tea. The store had a souvenir stamping station that I stupidly put in my actual passport. (That’s actually illegal since you’re defacing government property… but I didn’t run into any trouble at customs when coming home, phew.)

Ita Thao

Off the bus and to the little town, we go!

onwards to the street food (and i guess the view)

It was lunch time, so we helped ourselves to this great recommendation from Alan. It was 65 TWD each.

We picked up our bubble tea and sat on these benches so we can eat like savages. Nom nom. Wish I had that chicken wing right now… it was so delicious.

I do not remember this walk at all (I thought I took great notes during this trip…). This staircase reminds me of garlic bulbs, LOL! 570 steps / 20 minute walk to the next tourist sight.
