Lake
The Sun Moon Lake has a wide surface, and the peaks reflected on the lake form a beautiful landscape. There is a small island in the lake. It looks similar to a bead floating on the water, so it is called "Zhuzi Yu". Now it is also called Lalu Island. With this island as the boundary, the northern part of the lake is round like the sun, and the southern part of the lake is similar to a crescent. This is the reason for the name of Sun Moon Lake.

Most people go to Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan because it is very beautiful. Going to Sun Moon Lake is also indispensable for the boating (speedboat) water, but what I care most about is the big meal at the Sun Moon Lake Palace. The reason why it is called the palace is that its origin is from Mr Jiang because the water is also the place to pay attention to the landscape. On the top floor of the palace, while enjoying the freehand dishes, and enjoying the scenic view from the window, it does not feel that important to fill the stomach. It is not too late to get some food.

Hualien is located in the eastern part of Taiwan, between the Central Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean. Taiwanese like to say that Hualien has "good mountains and clean water", and every Hualien person is sincerely proud of this place. When I first arrived in Hualien, the air was as usual. Fresh, there is no special feeling, go to the car dealer to rent a suitable locomotive. I don't really have much understanding of Hualien, I just want to see the clear water cliffs, and I want to see if this is heavenly. We got on the road, the first day on the east Rift Valley. Went to Yunshan Water, Mata Saddle Wetland, two Tropic of Cancer Monument, Shitiping. Because of the estimated time zone, but also took a long time turning the mountain road at night even more terrible that I have not found a gas station all the way. I only found a gas station when it was almost empty. It is estimated that I will start driving for another few kilometers. I will start pushing the car and go to the Cliffs, and also detour to Ji'an Qingxiu. Two days in Hualien were beautiful, the good mountain views and clear water.

Take the bus to the Pingtung City Passenger Transfer Station, then take the bus for half an hour, and the master will pick it up and take the small plane. I saw that the plane had a window door that was not convenient for taking pictures, and I mentioned it to the master. The master unloaded the window door without saying anything. I took the plane and gave me a check on the seat belt. A few laps of hot air on the runway, and then began to tell me a variety of light machine knowledge and what various signs represent and the simple operation of the aircraft, with the take-off of the take-off rod, the entire take-off is stable and uncomfortable bumpy, 30 Minutes of experience time, the master took me to fly over the mountains and rivers, across the river, over the fields, hovering over the village, all the way steady and the master talking and patted the scenery and patted the self-timer. Although I only experienced 30 minutes, but the master directly took me over 40 minutes, and I think that the master is so cute when compared to some unscrupulous businesses in China. What impressed me even more is that after the smooth landing, there are tourists who come here to experience the flight, but the master insisted that I should send me to the station to pick up the list, except for the inner silence to praise the master, I can only be as far as possible in the travel notes. Propaganda of him, of course, the above are true and no exaggeration, blessing people who are sincere can fly farther.
