Taipei, Oct. 11 (CNA) Two scenic areas in Taiwan — Sun Moon Lake and the Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area — were named among the world's top 100 green destinations of 2019 on Thursday.

The two destinations were highlighted in the latest 2019 Sustainable Destinations Top 100 unveiled in Croatia that day by Green Destinations (GD), a Dutch nonprofit organization focused on efforts to promote sustainable tourism.

GD described Sun Moon Lake as playing the starring role of hydroelectric power production in Taiwan and focusing on travel with a low carbon footprint.

"With the circulation of water in Sun Moon Lake generating electricity and tourism development efforts, this has been a popular destination for many years," according to the GD website.
