“Better for foreignors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Fenchihu Old Town is a traditional town with tipically local things and foods, but not so attractive for Chinese... and it's also a very small town, take you 1 hour to visit at most.

“Just another old street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

It is just another old street where there aren't much to offer except the following:
a. The train bento. Quite good value for money. It is recommended.
b. When you are there, it is good to visit the old train station and walk to the opposite side of the station to see the rare square bamboo. It is square but you have to feel it with your hands. It is rare and unique. Highly recommended.

“A wonderful view of times past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We loved walking around Fenqihu; enjoyed the fireflies in June--but wished that the train was still in service! Loved the railway bento dinner at the Fenqihu fandian (with the 7-11 near the station!)

“Nice old railway station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Its a small railway station with old shops selling local delicacy and souvenirs. Must try traditional Railway lunch box and 'ai yu' jelly drink.

“Wish we had more time there...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

We booked a local travel agent to arrange our Alishan trip. The driver picked us from Chiayi High speed train station, and stopped at Fenqihu Old Town for 1 hour before heading to Alishan. We walked briefly, it's very old town. Since the forest train is not running at the moment, so the place is quiet comparing to other touristy places in Taiwan.
We had the famous 'train bento box', the tin box is so cute, if our luggage had more room, i would had bought one. Then we had the famous jelly drink, and bought one huge box of hand made mochi (fiance was laughing out loud)...
I wish we had more time, seems there is a nice hiking trail but we didn't have time to explore...
A nice little stop on the way to Alishan, try some food there. :)
