Alishan provides different type of scenary as you make your way up the altitude. The mist amid the tea plantations, mountain ranges enhance the mysterious feel to the place. Absolutely beautiful

The air is fresh and it gets cold in the morning. One can stay out of Chaiyi instead of Alishan as there is no entertainment for tourists in Alishan and accommodation were limited and so is ability of getting food when one gets hungry after dinner time. There is a convenient store for those who wants to make purchases for... More

We went to the Alishan Forest Recreation Area 2 days ago. There were hundreds of Greyhound-size buses packed alongside the road and at the bus-only parking lots. Just when we thought we have seen the most number of Mainland China tourists that non-high season day, we were so wrong. Today, our second trip to Alishan but this time we wanted... More

We took a bus from Chiayi to Alishan which took about 1.5 hours but was relatively interesting with the views going up the mountain.

It was three years ago, my friends and I went to Taiwan to celebrate the new year. We visited Ali mountain during our trip there. The beautiful stars really left us a deeply impression. We got up at 3pm, nearly 0 degree, being led to the mountain to see the stars. Really amazing!!!

Sunrise itself is absolutely stunning, with crisp chilly winds blowing all over you. Just waking up at 4am to buy a train ticket is very difficult. Was sleepy and super cold (around +15), but loved the view from the top of the mountain. Park and trees are full with fresh air and mistery atmosphere.
