A fun stroll through the village visiting little shops and taking in the views. We stopped for dinner and enjoyed good food and a wonderful sunset. A great way to end our visit to Taiwan.

We got to the top of the mountain via the gondola, which was a great way to travel. The mountain has amazing views over the city and the surrounding tea plantations. Once up there, there are tea houses, restaurants and shops to enjoy.
