    Lotus Pond

    This scenic area combines nature, architecture, and culture. The pond itself is filled with lotus plants which blooms every spring with pretty pink flowers. Nearby are three sets of impressive architecture, the most famous of which is the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. Located near the water, the twin pagodas as well as the unique entrance and exit of the pagodas (you will enter through the mouth of the dragon and exit through the mouth of the tiger) make for the perfect photo opportunity. The lesser known Ciji Temple and Spring and Autumn Pavilions are spectacular as well.

Not only is it a place of worship, it is also a great place for visitors to learn more about Buddhism and its ties to Taiwanese culture. Even if you are not a religious person, the beautiful architecture of the temples and statues will surely impress you.

    Driver - Charlie

    We had THE BEST day with Charlie. When he picked us up he had traditional (delicious!) Taiwanese breakfast food for us waiting warm and ready to eat as well as some traditional snacks and bottled water. He drove very well, just the right combination of speed and comfort and told us lots of interesting facts along the way. He made some great recommendations for adjusting our original itinerary which was really appreciated. He also recommended a great (cheap) steamed buns place to grab some lunch and took us there on the way which was awesome. It was really easy to coordinate with him via WhatsApp to arrange meeting up with him again after we visited our two stops of the national park and the beach. The beach he recommended was perfect, and he even started us off with a coconut to drink out of, truly thoughtful and sweet. The traffic was not great due to Chinese New Year but he didn't let it phase him, gave us lots of updates about expected ETA and then adjusted our drop off point to take us straight to the airport to ensure we made our flight on time. All in all totally wonderful man and the experience exceeded expectations, recommend for sure! Thanks Charlie :)

    Pleasant and accommodating driver. Brought us around, helped to take pictures and even compiled a video for us. Overall a comfortable ride up to Alishan despite the long journey. Also, thank you to Steve from Ownrides for the prompt response and service in helping to arrange for a driver even though the booking was made one day before the trip!
