Not only known as an “economic tiger of Asia”, the beauty of Taiwan’s jade island is also a blend of poetic natural scenery and long-standing traditional cultural values.
This magnificent island does not display the glamor and bustle as modern cities in the region, but froze like a traditional girl in discreet clothing, exuding a deep, salty abyss. Besides, this pearl island also retains in itself the long-standing traditional cultural values and beautiful dream system.
Sun Moon Lake
Arriving in Taiwan, I forgot to stop at Nhat Nguyet Dam. With an area of 7.73 km2, Nhat Nguyet Dam is the largest natural lake in Yuchi commune, Nantou district, Central Taiwan. Lyrical and romantic beauty, looming classic lines of Chinese feudal architecture have made this lake become the dream destination of pearl island.
Nhat Nguyet Dam season of the year is also beautiful. Spring is brilliant because of the red of plum blossom of cherry blossoms along the mountain side, the water surface in autumn illuminates the golden shadow trees. The weather in October will be cold and the people will be blooming along the lakeside walkway imprinted on the deep blue water, the clear sky forming a beautiful picture of wearing water.
Shifen old town
Those who have seen the movie “You’re Apple of My Eyes” will surely have a hard time forgetting the romantic setting when the Scenes of Dang and Nghiem Nghi together drop the sky lights in the ancient village of Thap Chi. From the main road to the small alleyways, every house in the village is covered with an ancient, mossy dust of time.
At the Cross, there is still an ancient railway, sometimes there are few rare trains passing by. The simple decoration shops, small beautiful coffee shops along the track like adding nostalgic color to the commemorative photo of the young people.
The custom of sky drop lights has become a traditional culture. People write their wishes into the flower lanterns and drop them into the sky. Peace, luck and the deepest desire are all sent back to the ancient Part Ten.
