Xiangshan Administration & Visitors Center
The Xiangshan Administration & Visitors Center officially opened on Feb. 25, 2011, after seven years of construction. This is the new home of the Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area Administration. This internationally-renowned avant garde building is designed by a Japanese architect, Dan Norihiko. The uniquely-designed building is based on a concept of embracing Sun Moon Lake and blending into the surrounding environment. The slope sods lead visitors to the top and the arc-shaped design creates harmony between the building itself and nature. The design of the roofs of both buildings allows visitors to have enough space to overlook the Sun Moon Lake. The interior design and the surrounding landscape made of waterscape, sods, and exposed concrete create a perfect space between people and nature. There are a number of exhibition halls inside the building. For instance, ‘Love at Sun Moon Lake’ gathers a variety of featured industries, such as pottery, timber, liquor, black tea, and agricultural products from Puli, Shuili, Jiji, and Sinyi. A gallery combines tourism with culture and holds displays with different themes every season. Sun Moon Gallery introduces Sun Moon Lake’s nature, culture, and history. The Multimedia Briefing Room regularly plays 3D and HD Blue-ray discs about Sun Moon Lake every day.
With the service provided by Taiwan Tour Bus, round-the-lake bus, yacht sailing tour and cable car, you can see Sun Moon Lake from different angles.
