What You Can Expect

5-Hour Thousand Island Lake and Pinglin Tea Plantation Scenery Tour

5-Hour Thousand Island Lake and Pinglin Tea Plantation Scenery Tour

Your tour begins with an 8am pickup from your central Taipei hotel by air-conditioned coach. Soak up the scenery as you drive through New Taipei City, then head into the countryside, winding along mountain roads into the Shiding district.

Jump out to admire views of Thousand Lake (Qiandao Lake) and the Feitsui Reservoir, and spend time enjoying the serene landscape, with its lush green hills, vast tea plantations, and glittering lake dotted with tiny islands.

Continue to the Pinglin district, famous for its Wanshan Pouchong tea, and enjoy a tour of the Pinglin Tea Plantation. As you explore the plantation and visit the Pinglin Tea Museum, learn all about the fascinating tea production process, from growing and harvesting the tealeaves, to brewing the perfect cup of Taiwanese tea.

At the end of your tour, return to Taipai, where your day ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Please note: The Pinglin Tea Museum is closed on the first Monday of every month and will be replaced with a visit to Pinglin Old Street.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Our guide was great. We had one other person on the tour with us, so even though it was billed as a small group tour it was almost like a private tour. We were taken to areas of beautiful scenery, off the path for most tourists we didn't see ANY other non-Asians. We enjoyed the tea museum, and the tea tasting experience was fun. This was a reasonably priced tour, and we felt it was very much work it!

Great tour, but unfortunately it was raining when we visited. It would be amazing if the weather was better. The tea tasting was a lovely touch to the tour.

It was a very nice tour and the tour guide was very friendly and open to all the questions. The tour ended nicely at a tea house which was really good.

The trip is fine. Only when we view the thousand islands lake we are facing the Sun and the LAKE is hidden in HAZE!
Time is a bit short for every spot.
