We stayed in a B&B called 天一民宿。The owner couple are very nice and serve us. They took us from Chiayi to their place and toured us around in the Alishan. There are a lot of trails in the mountains, well maintained and easy to walk. We will be there again. The B&B has a very good view for sunset

Alishan National Park is a great place to visit if you like nature. Besides a new experience of watching sun rise on top of mountain, I found walking around the park in the area of the divine trees is really refreshing and relaxing.

Great place to go if you like to do easy forest trails. All trails take about an hour to finish. How to get there from Chiayi Railway Station per way: By cab from is about 250NT per person, 2hour 30mins By public bus 7322 is 236NT per person, 2hour 40mins (purchase bus ticket at counter next to bus bay) Entry...

Alishan National Scenic Area is beautiful. Being in the mountains gives one a deep sense of reverence for the environment. The sacred wood trees are awe-inspiring. It's a fantastic place especially for urban dwellers to reconnect with nature. There are a lot of tourists who are quite loud though. This can spoil the tranquility one is seeking. They are quite...

I loved this place. Possibly my favorite experience in Taiwan. We spent 2 nights here, and I'm glad I successfully argued for 2 nights vs. 1. It can be crowded, but it is absolutely worth it, because sunrise is spectacular. We watched it from 2 different places which I am glad for. The forest is very beautiful when it is... More

It is a lovely place - and I came because of the song I heard many years ago! Came in September 15 and December 15. In September, I stayed in a hotel in Alishan area. It is overpriced with extremely basic amenities. In December, I came with my family and we hired a taxi to bring us here from Sun... More

I like Alishan most among the places I visited during my one-week trip in Taiwan. Our driver-guide brought my family and I to tour Alishan Forest Recreation Area where we walked among tall trees, saw the picturesque Sisters Lake and passed by the Alishan Xianglin Primary School before we reached the Xianglin Giant Tree. Alishan Xianglin Primary School is situated... More
