[taiwan 2013] day 7-8: scenic sun moon lake

Today was a short day so I’m posting again! Yesterday (day 7) was mostly travelling to sun moon lake which took around 6 hours!! but we just sat in the cab and I slept most of the way heh. Today we went around sun moon lake by boat, bicycle and on foot which was quite fun! exercise day haha.

On a side note, it feels like half of Singapore is in taiwan omg I met odac while we were on the east rift valley tour (they were cycling then we drove past ahaha but I saw ruixiang) and saw shamen yesterday cos she cycled past my hotel! And my mum has met 2 or 3 colleagues/ ex-colleagues/ idk. Seriously everywhere you go can see/hear Singaporeans one!! Anyway ok on to the photos!

yesterday we drove along windy mountain roads for 6h!! to get to sun moon lake
