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.
