      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.

    Andy was very kind and accommodating. So thoughtful of him to ask if we already had breakfast when he met us at the THSR station. When he found out we had not eaten yet, he brought us to this small eating place that serves the best siopao and dumplings. The best dimsum we had. When our tour ended at...Read More

    I am very happy with Jack's service. He was punctual, his driving style was fast but safe, and he was flexible to accommodate our requests to change the choice/sequence of spots to be visited. He also helped take a lot of our photos.
