So, there I was lured everywhere I went. At Nantou County, the second largest county of Taiwan, for instance, I spent a reflective time by the magnificent lake, Sun Moon Lake, an iconic historical wealth of the Taiwanese that is replete with history. It was this very lake that once apparently drew Chiang Kai-Shek to the lake. He fell in love with the lake when he landed in the island, he took refuge in the natural setting as it reminded him of China, his homeland.

We spent our time here leisurely sailing around the enchanting lake on a boat tour, making trips to Cih En Pagoda Temple and the Chung-Tai Monastery.Sun Moon Lake is also home to Taiwan’s annual mid-autumn festival, the Sun Moon Lake Swim. Every year in October, around 10,000 people swim from one side of the lake to the other. This is the only time of year that anyone can swim there, as it would be too big for lifeguards to patrol. The annual swim ends with a spectacular fireworks display and party, all set against a stunning backdrop. Well worth making a second trip back for, methinks!
