Perfect for tea fiends and nature lovers alike. Even better: return transport from downtown Taipei is included in your ticket.

As you approach Thousand Island Lake, you'll understand how it earned its name; the lake's bright blue waters are filled with leafy green islands of different shapes and sizes. This natural terrain and the local climate make the surrounding area perfect for growing tea.

The district of Pinglin is the main growing area for several popular varieties. Tea plantations fill the mountainous surroundings, creating a unique and lush green landscape. Only one hour away from central Taipei, the scenery along the way is breathtaking – and the town is a popular getaway for those seeking some relaxation away from the city.

Want to find out what happens to all of those tea leaves? Located near the beautiful Beishi River, the Pinglin Tea Museum is a must-see for tea lovers. There's a huge collection of material based around tea culture, divided into several areas: tea history, tea making, and tea leaves. Discover how tea culture developed throughout Chinese history, learn about local rituals, and trace the commercial development of tea.

Good tour with great guide and wonderful views. Although a bit short and the driver had quite terrible driving skills. Felt a bit nauseous...
