Day 4 - Sun Moon Lake / Lukang / Kaohsiung (B)

Lukang is situated on the west-central coast of Taiwan, at the edge of the coastal plain. Although once a harbor, severe silting of the sea and the Lukang River have left it some distance form the shore. The climate is temperate to tropical; summers are hot with occasional thunderstorms, the spring and fall have moderate temperatures, and winters are cool. From September to the following March strong northeasterly monsoons blow in large amounts of sand and dust, forming what is known locally as the "September winds". 

The most fascinating aspect of Lukang is a number of ancient streets and lanes lined with old houses. The most unique of these are deep, narrow-fronted buildings that serve as stores and residences; this type of sky-lighted structure, however, can be seen today only at the Yuan Chang Shop on Chungshan Road, along Old Market Street, and at the Lukang Folk Arts Museum. Others, the half-old, the half-new shop residences along Chungshan road are products of the Japanese occupation period (1895-1945), when the front rooms of the buildings were dismantled because of a road-widening project and the modern arch-type facades were added. The Old Temples of Lukang, too, are veritable collections of art and masterpieces of architecture. They are well worth careful observation. 

Handicraft Shops on Chungshan Road carve palanquins for the gods. You can see how the chairs that transport the deities on their processions are made with meticulous woodworking techniques and carving skills. Shops that produce the religious images themselves continue to practice carving in the traditional Chuanchou style of Fuchien province. Makers of traditional wooden furniture still use the materials and exquisite handwork of former times to turn out sacrificial offering tables and other items. Other handicrafts produced on this street include fans, incense, tin sculptures, and ornamental lanterns, among other things. 

Old Market Street  is made up of the curved, red-tiled lanes of today's Putou, Yaolin, and Tayu streets. Both sides of the streets are lined with newly renovated old-style shop buildings that feature intensely interesting internal room layouts and old-style exteriors. Here you can feel some of the atmosphere of old Lukang.

It is located in south of Taiwan with popular beach bordering on the tropical region of Taiwan where palm tree, banana trees, sugar cane and surfing beach are part of the scene. It's an excellent place for swim, surf, and dive. Other sightseeings will be visited today are the southermost tip of Taiwan,  "Maopitou" (named after the shape of cat-nose-like rock.) The coast of coral reef is worth a visit for landreforms which strongly affected by wave erosions, efflorescence, and salt-soaking.

Day 6 - Kaohsiung City Sightseeing / Cheng Ching Lake / Spring & Autumn Pavilions / Taipei (B)
Kaohsiung City: Located in the southern part of Taiwan, the city of Kaohsiung is the island's largest industrial center. It has stayed abreast of Taiwan's recent progress and prosperity; expanding and modernizing, the city strides into the 21st century as a newly emerging international metropolis. Beginning centuries ago, Kaohsiung was called "Dagou" or "Dahgu, transliterated from the name of local aborigines. Disturbed by the violence of pirates in the area, in 1563, the "Takuo" tribe eventually moved to the site of present-day Pingtung city. This name persisted until 1920, when the city's name was changed to Kaohsiung.

Cheng Ching Lake: It is the largest lake in the Kaohsiung area, developed originally as a reservoir to meet the need for water for industrial use. Later on the lake was improved through environmental landscaping, until today it offers the beauty of a forested park. It was opened to the public as a tourist destination in 1960. The surface of the lake has a water area of more than 300 hectares, and the highway that has been built around it stretches for a total of seven kilometers. The tranquil beauty of the area has led it to be given the sobriquet, "West Lake of Taiwan." The best known of the lake's attractions is probably its Bridge of Nine Turns. Under the hill behind the Chuanxizhai is an aquarium that was originally built in 1961 as an anti-nuclear underground bunker. Its winding, 200-meter length was later remodeled into a tourist aquarium with exhibits of all sorts of oceanic organisms divided into eight display areas: special animals, treasures of the sea, shellfish, coral, strange rocks, and sperm whales. It is a place that is perfect for both entertainment and education.

Spring & Autumn PavilionsTwo massive pavilions dedicated to Kuan Kung, the God of War, the Spring and Autumn Pavilions were completed in 1951. In front of the pavilions is a statue of Kuanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, riding a dragon. According to legend, Kuanyin appeared above the clouds riding on a dragon, signifying that believers must erect an image depicting this event between "pavilions of summer and autumn": The present-day structures are a result of this vision.
