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. 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.

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.
