"Sun Moon Lake" is used by many other places in the world since its famous. Definitely, you should hire one of the many tour boats operating here to take you around to take photos. I am not a big fan of these kind of places...More

I think the bike lane is good, too bad it's raining all day. Biking along the lake was so nice. There are bicycles for rent. Peaceful with beautiful scenery.

Really enjoyed our visit here. Cruised around the lake on a boat, wandered into the village for some street food and then caught the cable car over to the theme park. Allow about 3 hours

It takes about 3-4 hours to get from Taipei to Sun Moon Lake (on a combination of High Speed Rail and bus) but with good weather, the lake is gorgeous. You don't need more than two days in the area though, one to stroll around...More

Personally I didn't find sun moon lake such a draw. But since you really want to go, do hire a driver or find a tour group as advised by the other reviewers. I totally agree with them. It'd be too troublesome otherwise... More

There is a direct bus/coach from Taichung HSR station to Sun Moon Lake ! Its under Nantou bus and the frequency is about every one hour one trip from morning to early afternoon. The bus journey is abt 2hrs.
