How big is the Lotus Pond? How long does it take to walk around the pond?
Walking around the pond may take between one to one and a half hours depending on your pace,
allowing yourself some time to stop for taking pictures or a snack along the 3km route.
You might consider putting on comfortable shoes and sun protection for your convenience. It would also be handy to carry a portable umbrella when traveling in Taiwan since the weather becomes more unpredictable. Also in this part of the world, it’s perfectly normal to put up an umbrella when the sun is out, even if it’s not for the rain. As they say “when in Rome do as the Romans do.”
