Nantou

3.8
Bodies of Water · Landmarks · Forests
Nantou provides good access to the cultural and natural sites of the surrounding county of the same name. The only landlocked county in the country, it makes up for its lack of coastline with a wealth of scenic mountainous areas, vast lakes, and well-preserved forests. A number of cultural points of interest lie in the countryside surrounding the city, including old oolong tea plantations, storied temples, and traditional towns. The city itself has a couple of interesting museums and markets, although holidays in Nantou focus far more on what lies just outside, rather than what lies within. Make Nantou central to your Taiwan travel plans using our Taiwan trip planning app.

Where to stay in Nantou

As a base for explorations of the county, Nantou offers a wealth of accommodations for its many visitors, from the outdoorsy minded, to cultural adventurers and luxury-lovers. Take a look in the center of town to find a number of hotels of all types, along with some simple guesthouses. On the outskirts, particularly by the river to the north, sit a good selection of boutiques boasting views of the surrounding landscape. Many visitors to the county also get tempted by lakeside accommodations by Sun Moon Lake--arguably the main natural attraction of the county--to the south.
