Stayed here in December and it was a truly memorable and enjoyable stay. The minshu though not very high up the mountain is in a tea plantation and very close to some very nice walks. We arrived at night and woke up to lovely view of Alishan famous 'Sea of Clouds', which is surreal when seen in the horizon over... More

Our family of 5 chose to stay with small swiss and we were genuinely satisfied and happy with all the arrangements made. Pick up and send off: David was right on time to pick us up from chiayi HSR station. He was a careful driver and provided us with knowledgeable insights of the sights along the way. For a fee,...

Meals and guide all provided. Do not need to worry and David ensures that all of us are well fed. He is knowledgeable. Would definitely... More

He would explain in English so we could understand better as our chinese level weren't that great. They fetch us at the train station when we reached Chiayi and brought us for lunch and a few great locations before heading to their homestay which... More
