Aurora Optima Sun Moon Lake (日月潭) Daybreak (晨曦) Limited Edition
Sun Moon Lake is one of the most beautiful scenic wonders in Taiwan. Its captivating beauty lies in the changing colors of the lake during different times of the day. The palette of colors the lake ranges from include the pearl-like silver strands shrouded in morning fog, to the reflection of a reddish-tinted sky on its turquoise serenity at dusk and the enchanting moonlight dancing on its mysterious dark blue waves at night.
