Sun Moon Lake & Wen Wu Temple

Sun Moon Lake is situated in Nantou County’s Yuchih Township, in the center of Taiwan, and is the Taiwan's largest lake.

The eastern part of the lake is round like the sun and the western side is shaped like a crescent moon thus the name “Sun Moon Lake”.

We were at the lake in the late morning and took a leisurely cruise..

This is the traditional way of fishing in the lake.
The famous fish from the lake is "President Fish" because the former president loved it alot.. It's very expensive cos it's rare and very difficult to catch.

This is termed the Little Dubai Hotel, and apparently the sail is made out of solid gold.. Which I don't believe at all. Boo.

The tiny Lalu Island!

It was opened to public but now it's closed as it's slowly sinking.. So we can only cruise around it..

Entrance to Wen Wu Temple

Nice decorations for the New Year!
