Tainan was one of the first cities in Taiwan. The city was also the first capital, and the center of politics and economy for about 300 years. From this history, an ancient atmosphere has emerged with the most abundant collection of historical buildings & national treasures in all of Taiwan.

Hidden in the mountains, Sun Moon Lake is Taiwan's biggest fresh water lake and also a popular honeymoon destination. The lake surrounds Lalu island.
