Fenchihu Old Town, Chiayi County

(2.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Fenchihu Old Town represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chiayi County vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • 散步在奮起湖老鎮上,有著濃濃的古早味,懷舊的鐵道便當很好吃,阿婆的草仔粿熱騰騰,阿伯的愛玉冰很消暑,還有已經退休的蒸汽火車頭,是火車迷的最愛,散步附近的森林步道可以吸吸芬多精  more »
  • 喜歡這裡的清閒,很可惜現烤甜甜圈賣完了沒吃到,有星空拍攝景點,經過老街吃喝一點在地小吃解渴!百年肖楠樹集中種植。鐵道旁設有鐵道歷史文化展覽館!  more »
  • 熱鬧老街雖然小小的,但是別有一番風味,除了在老街走完還可以繼續往森林步道走一圈,吸收芬多精,適合全家大小一起遊玩  more »
