※Pinglin local tea shop
Meet your tour guide and driver in the morning, relax and enjoy a scenic drive along the mountain road, to Pinglin, a rural district that is famous for growing Wanshan Pouchong Tea.

The tour starts with a visit to the local tea factory in Pinglin, where you will learn about the cultivation and making of Taiwan Tea. Pinglin tea farmer will also teach you how to properly brew Taiwan tea and the tips of tea appreciation.

※Shiding Thousand Island Lake
After that, take a short ride to Shiding District and visit the famous Thousand Island Lake. The catchment area of Feitsui Reservoir surrounded by hills creates this unique scenery – a lake with thousands of islands.

The natural terrain and climate make the surrounding area of Feitsui Reservoir an ideal farmland for tea-growing; the noted tea plantation of Bagua Tea Garden is located in this area, too. From the top of the hill, the neatly planted rows of tea look just like the symbols of Eight Trigrams.

※Shenkeng Old Street
Then you will move to Shenkeng District and visit the famous Tofu Street – Shenkeng Old Street. It’s one of the locals’ favorite for a weekend break, and also well-known for the smelly and delicious “Stinky Tofu”. If you are afraid to give it a bite, try some Tofu Ice Cream!

※Taipei Elephant Mountain
Finally, you will head back to Taipei City and then take a relaxing hike along Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail. This mountain looks like an elephant’s head from a distance, hence the name. It is also a popular photo stop for a panoramic view of Taipei City, where you can even have a look at the entire building of Taipei 101.
