Where to stay in Chiayi County

Accommodations in Chiayi County lie sparsely scattered across its rugged landscape, though many visitors opt to stay in the city of the same name (which, technically, the county does not include). In Chiayi City, choose from stylish four-star accommodations to quirky hostels situated in the heart of the city center. Heading out west for some of the county's most remote and mountainous regions, the Meishan and Alishan Townships offer a handful of cozy bed and breakfast-style lodgings, allowing you to explore the picturesque national parks in comfort.
