I was on top during my visit to Taiwan!
Sun Moon Lake in Puli, Taiwan
The high mountains covered in greenery overlooking the valley on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other side. The bus ride it took to get into the mountains was something I was not prepared for, but the scenery was well worth the trip. The rain hindered our planned hot air balloon ride; however, we were able to enjoy a nice cup of red oolong tea at a local tea shop in Taitung County where the annual Balloon Festival takes place. I really don’t know what I enjoyed more, the overview from the mountains or the drive out of the mountains along the east coast of Taiwan. Three layers of blue with the darkest shade furthest away, rock formations that makes the imagination run wild with as far as interpretation, and the peace that comes from hearing the waves crash ashore.
I don’t know why Taiwan has yet to be deemed one of the most attractive vacation destinations with its splendor of beautiful landscape, friendly people, and enough flavorful food to please the most finicky eater.
Visit Taiwan and see why it’s known as “The Heart of Asia”
