This is an overdue review. Stayed here 4 years ago, travelling with a friend. Our guide was David. The homestay was located mid way of Alishan, it was sitting on a plot of tea plantation. The package includes homestay, meals and sight seeing. The package is well planned, not too tiring, but get to see a lot of attractions. Food... More

We signed a 3D2N tour with the homestay and was very happy throughout. David was our driver and guide, his wife made breakfast and made up our room for us. Their house and room is clean and what greets us everyday when we woke up is the awesome, breathtaking view from our window. David is thoughtful and helpful, he shared... More

Mr David refused to confirm our room and said he will only confirm if we engaged their driver Mr Xu for his transportation. We contacted Mr Xu and he quoted us ridiculous pricing for his service hence... More

First,we apologize for David's bad reply to your request because he didn't have patience to reply clearly why he didn't reserve the room for you if you didn't booked the experienced local driver's transportation. This homestay's location is in the tea plantation with a very narrow and windy road leading to homestay which is about 2 km away from the... More

When we reached the B&B, it was already very dark and we were all tired after our flights and travelling. We could not see the view outside. The B&B facilities and image are basic, feels more like a home than a hotel. The next morning, when we looked out of the window, we were awe strucked by the beautiful scenery... More

Charlie and his wife were very hospitable hosts. They picked us and another Singaporean up from the High Speed Rail Station and drove us all the way up to their property. Charlie speaks fluent English while his wife manages good Chinese but mostly speaks Hokkien. The accommodation is beautiful! The room is comfortable and overlooks a tea plantation. Charlie brought...

Our family of 5 visited Alishan last April 2, 2015 and stayed for one night at the Small Swiss Homestay in Chiayi County, which sits atop the mountain and amidst tea plantations.

Little Swiss in Ali Mountain's Ding Shizhuo (literally "stone table at the top") is truly a hidden treasure, a subtropical mountain paradise tucked away above 1800 ft. where we stayed from 4/8-4/10/2015. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and each room had its own bathroom. The picture windows in each room looked out to a vast mountain range and a tea... More
