Trip Planner:   Asia  /  Taiwan  /  Chiayi County  /  Fenchihu Old Town
Fenchihu Old Town, Chiayi County
(2.7/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • 有很多好吃的小吃,如檜木甜甜區,烤得非常好吃以及在地野生愛玉非常的美味,例外還有厲害的草仔糕非常的扎實好吃,至於鐵路便當那就真的還好!冬天來還有螢火蟲可以看歐,不過在要日落之後1-2小時內欣賞 
  • 來奮起湖遊玩不外乎是來參觀阿里山小火車及逛逛著名的奮起湖老街和走走步道。而奮起湖大飯店販售的鐵路便當已是遊客來遊玩必嚐鮮的美食之一了!在搭配一杯清涼野生愛玉,簡直絕配啊! !! 
  • Very quaint. So little place but so many things to see, eat and buy! So many picturesque places. A cameraman's dream place to shoot.
