Sun Moon Lake 日月潭 is discovered by a group of Thao hunter who chase after a rare and beautiful white deer and found this deep green water lake. The entire area around Sun Moon Lake, including today’s Yuchi, Toushe, and Puli, was once known as Shuishalian
Our driver drop us at ferry station and purchase the ferry ticket which allow unlimited ride of ferry, three different location to hop on for a price of NTD300/adult.
Our “Ferry” which is actually very high class compare to Penang Ferry, very stable and short distance among three different location so no worry about getting dizzy.
Walking on the floating platform toward our Ferry, many different company to choose from and all offer the same service hence no different to select one another.
The so call most expensive hotel.
Lalu Island, this island is not open for public, is considered to be the home of the Thao ancestral spirits. Floating docks and fields surround the island in the shape of the Eight Diagrams.
First stop at SyuanGuang玄光寺，where an old lady selling herbal tea egg“阿婆茶叶蛋” for more than 50 over years.
Everyone is queuing for their herbal tea egg.
We bought 4 eggs and finish it within 10minute, it is so delicious.
50 years old of experience in preparing the herbal tea egg is simply awesome, it has mild herbal tea taste and the solid texture of egg white and yolks making it so different.
You can actually walk around that area of even walk few hundred step to 玄光寺 but since we are too tired immediately we hop of ferry to next destination.
Next and last destination is YiDaShao伊達邵部落，it a small city selling various traditional items and snacks.
We try the wild boar sausage as it highly recommended by local media.
Wild Boar Sausage NTD30, honestly the taste is just normal and the meat is quite hard, I still prefer the ordinary pork sausage.
Few step away is a must eat shop, we highly recommended this shop.
Deep Fried Cabbage Pao NTD40, big in portion and the taste is so good.
It has ingredients such as cabbage, mushroom and pork mince
Top with chili paste making it taste even better.
Deep Fried Chicken Wing stuff with Rice饭饭鸡翼, it was recommended by the flyer which mean another must try snacks.
Boneless chicken wing marinated with secret recipe and fill with high quality glutinous rice give a outer skin crispy and soft inside texture.
Busy preparing our ordered.
Apply a layer of secret homemade powder on top of chicken wing.
Slice a small gap.
Put in cucumber to give a crunchy texture and that the complete snack.
The outer skin is crispy and honey sweet while the inside rice is sticky and savory taste.
We saw a very cute 18sx photo here.
This is another must drink AhSahMu Red Tea阿萨姆红茶. The tea is very smooth and has strong red tea flavor.
We took a photo of fake Sun Moon Lake stone, as the original is always pack with people.
