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.

  • The parking lot is not much, the holiday is very terrible, but the mountain is a car, exciting up the Lake train station with Old Street to stroll, there are some shops around to eat, the oldest shop is at the bottom of the old street, where to eat and iron is installed, but the advice can take a train up from the mountain, can see more beautiful scenery

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.
