The Sun Moon Lake, situated in Nantou County, is separated into Sun-shaped of East side and crescent Moon of West side by Lalu Island, and therefore got its name.
Being richly endowed by nature, Sun Moon Lake has a clear green surface surrounded by hills and mountains, which has been one of the best scenes for putting on fireworks shows. Since 1990, Sun Moon Lake International Fireworks Music Festival has been carried out here at Sun Moon Lake, it has become the highlight for visiting and appreciating tours in the fall, which is one of the three major annual events, in addition to Sun Moon Lake International Swimming Carnival and Cherry Blossom Season.
