Thousand Island Lake (千島湖)
This is a great place to visit anytime of day, but the hours around dusk or dawn will make for the best pictures. Buses do run here from Taipei, but it's highly recommend to have a set of wheels here in order to roam freely. Plenty of taxi companies and tour groups offer this service.
