TripAdvisor Reviews Alishan House Chiayi County
Travel Blogs from Chiayi County
We finally made it to the Alishan village only to find out that the hotel we booked was no where near the village. So, the only English speaking person at the tourist information took us to a hotel that we think later is ran by his friend. Anyway, the owner actually speaks Cantonese and was quite helpful. The hotel would charitably be described as rudimentary.
We took a ride on the historic narrow gauge ...
We took the fast train from Tainan to Chiayi, it took 40 min. The regular train would be 65 min and the high speed rail, 18 min. When we got there, some woman was offering a mini van ride to the B&B for NT$ 250 each. A bus ticket would be $170 and we would have to wait for another 4 hours. Luckily, we took the offer and the driver actually called the B&B to meet us ...
... track, and famous railway lunchbox...??. Anyway, it was a scenic journey up with lots of misty mountain views and excited kids waving at the train as it passed by. The tourists on-board seemed fascinated by every aspect of it and were taking photos of the interior, walls outside the window, the back of the headrests etc. There were lots of posters of 'famous railway lunchbox' everywhere too (beginning of Fenchihu railway lunch box obsession...). ...
got up early, had a bite to eat and was over to my other hostel early. arrived and they invited me for a huge breakfast that they cooked for the wedding goers. after eating, visited the railway garage, prison tour, ate slushie, fish soup and turkey rice.
spent saturday wandering Lukang. It was a crazy day of parades with all of the temples organizing groups dressed in various themes... tons of firecrackers. accomodation is super booked up, so have to move on to Chiayi in the evening as my hostel is booked out for a birthday. The hostel I want in Chiayi is also booked for a wedding so have to stay at another place and switch tomorrow.
