    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.

    Fo Guang Shan is a huge complex of numerous Buddhist temples. 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.

    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.

    Driver - Guo Zhou

    He was very kind and met us on time. He was also very informative about all the places we were going to, and even gave us recommendations for restaurants when it came to food that would fit our dietary needs. Overall, he’s a very pleasant driver and I would recommend him to anyone that needs to hire a driver in taiwan.
