Fenchihu Old Town, Chiayi County

Must See
Originally a stop for trains to load up on their way into the Alishan forest, Fenchihu Old Town now attracts visitors for its antiquated charm and preserved traditional wares. Sitting 1,500 m (4,921 ft) above sea level, the town's high street is literally the highest in the country and boasts traditional culinary delicacies, as well as aboriginal clothing, toys, and vintage commodities from days gone by. In addition to the old-time shopping, you'll stroll past bamboo groves, and, southwest of the station, you'll have the opportunity to witness hundreds of bats nesting during the spring and summer time. Using our custom trip planner, Chiayi County attractions like Fenchihu Old Town can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It’s a small old street, a lot smaller than jiu fen. We only spent 30 mins there. There’s much to shop there.  more »
  • If it's a car station or maybe it's better! In the middle of the Alishan small car, after the passing of the 闢 Road, only one day 2 classes on the mountain to stop the observation light train, but because the current is not full of iron road, so visitors usually relax but the holiday is filled. The most beautiful time of the tour, every evening before. After the guests had left, the burning wood boiled the Hamamelis hamamelis, with the occasional light of the sun, and the tranquil town was the most fascinating moment. There is a mountain of peaks in the canteen, it provides the cuisine is my favorite, especially when it is the lake when you must not miss.

  • The first-class journey, the cool cake of my dear wife and her little grandkids son, and hide in the fog of the train station, night of the starlight especially bright, forget the city's noisy escape, live a night, especially comfortable
