    The huge memorial hall atop a huge stair case was centrally placed with beautiful flowered garden around. Nice to visit and know some history and pay some respects.
    Visited in Oct 2018.

    Excellent view and friendly space for sightseeing. I went there before COVID, and the landscape is unique and the shops are very comfortable to enjoy souvenir shopping or just enjoy a good coffee. Highly recommendes

    This is our second visit this year
    We came last time in April during long weekend, due to COVID 19, there wasn't a lot of people. Traveling with kids under 6, 3-4 hours is enough.

    We came again in June, but there were lots people, it seems like waiting time is long but rides was short
    -the ferris wheel only goes around 2 turns even though there is no lineups

    Overall LeoFoo is great animal educational park

    The bus, train, and monkey bicycle are the must go on, young children will enjoy them. Other facilities are more or less similar to other parks

    So much to do here at Sun Moon Lake. Always visit here a few times when returning to Nantou to visit the in-laws as less than an hrs drive away. Hiring bikes is always a fun choice as well as the boat tours and visiting some of the temples. I recommend avoiding the parking touts trying to signal you in, also some of the vendors can sometimes be a bit pushy but never too bad. As always in Taiwan, plenty of different foods to choose from!

    This is the most famous Temple in Taipei.

    Dating back to 1738, this temple was originally a Buddhist temple. It was dedicated to Guanyin (觀世音, Avalokiteśvara, one of the Buddhist bodhisattva), which is a branch spirit from Guanyin of the Lungshan Temple at Jin-Jiang county, Fujian province (福建省晉江縣). Then it was named after its root temple.

    Destroyed and rebuilt for several times, the temple now worships gods of three religions: Buddhist, Taoist and Ruism (Confucianism).

    To improve air quality and to better protect the environment, Taiwan started a movement to encourage temples to ban incense burning since 2014.

    There is no incense in this temple. Great!!.

    It's a must see but it is both OLD and CROWDED. If you keep these two things in mind and adjust your expectations then I think you'll be fine. Don't expect anything new and don't expect super clean, obviously. It's old. And unless you come before Noon, it does start to get pretty crowded from Noon on when the tourists arrive. The problem with going too early is that most of the shops are not open, but the problem with going later is the crowd. So, your choice. Just manage your expectations and you'll be fine. :)

    They do have some unique shops. There was one shop called Things And that sells super cute 1950's era Taiwanese design items like t-shirts and coasters, etc. I thought they had the most unique items in Jiufen Old Town. I also loved the atmosphere at Chu Chun Dint Inn coffee shop/restaurant. Can hop in for coffee even if you're not staying there.

    Taroko Gorge is situated beside the Liwu River, near the Pacific Ocean. The most convenient starting point is Hualien. Taroko Gorge is famous for its zig-zag marble highway running around the Gorge, which offers ofers a magnificent view of the breathtaking scenes below. The highway was hacked out of the rock by veterans. It has an important strategic function, as it connected the west and east of the island.

    This is a totally western-style museum. It is surrounded by a vast beautiful European-style garden.

    At the entrance of the garden, there is a proportional replica of the Apollo Fountain at the Palace of Versailles. The garden stands many replicas of world-famous sculptures. The pavilion is a Neo-Renaissance building. The layout and interior decoration are similar to the Louvre Museum.

    The exhibition targets are domestic people. For foreign tourists, Musical Instrument Hall and Arms and Armor Hall are highly recommended. The exhibitions in these two halls are of world-class. The mechanical music part of the collection is especially eye-catching. Among them, the Mechanical piano and three pianos (Hupfeld Phonoliszt-Violina, Leipzig, 1924) and Orchesrion (Michael Welte & Sons of Freiburg, 1893) are rare treasures.

    Special exhibitions are often in collaboration with world-class museums. For example, the current exhibition is: "Icons and Identities: masterpieces from the National Portrait Gallery, London".

    I visited Taroko National Park in November 2022. I very much recommend getting a driver for your visit, as the roads can be difficult to drive on and it is especially helpful if you have a limited amount of time and want to maximize what you can see during your visit.

    I highly recommend the driver I hired (based on many other positive reviews from others), Tonny Teng. He is very kind, knowledgeable, professional, and he made my visit to the park very easy and fun! His english is good and he will cater your day to your interests/needs.

    I cannot recommend him highly enough!

    We met Steve at the Maokong Tourist Centre and I cannot thank him enough for all his advice and help. His warm hospitality and truly great service has blown out expectations away, Steve is a true gem and wonderful service staff. He goes above and beyond to help as travellers do require assistance most of the times for their vacation planning. He is the reason we would visit Maokong again, he goes over and beyond to assist us, thank you so much. We took so many photos at the fun photo booth and downloaded it to our phone

    Although some people think that Taiwan is a tropical island, when the freezing winds blow in winter, straight off North China, Taipei can be very cold. Kenting National Park, however, is almost always warmer than Taipei, it's a great winter get-away. There are numerous beaches, plus the Eluanbi Lighthouse is interesting. There are lots of things to do, including the inevitable night market. What would a holiday be without a night market? Kenting is mainly for young people to have fun

    My family and I enjoyed Beitou public hot spring. It is very cheap to get in and they allow children as young as one in. I am currently pregnant, so they did not advise me to go in. I was able to go with my family, but did not get the full experience. The place hosts 5 different pools with different temperatures. You can buy a suit, swim cap and towels there if someone forgets their swim stuff. It is relaxing and I think better without small children. If you’re up for it you can kill two birds with one stone and walk through the thermal park. It’s pretty amazing.
