  • Morning on the 5:50 train and went to see the sunrise. Good weather on that day could see the first Sunrise in my life.

  • The whole atmosphere is filled with fog. Air is exceptionally fresh, wood has a very long history. It is cool in the summer.

  • If you want to come to Mt. Ali/Exciting Lake advice one night, or else will be very tired, because from the mountain down to the mountain about 1 hours, then to the mountain fog will be very concentrated road is very small, driving to open the car lights, the most famous of the lake is in the street below, not in the car station of the old shop Oh, but a $130 really not cheap ah

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.
