Our group of 5 signed up for Fu Yam's 3D2N tour and subsequently spent the next 3 days at Taipei. Our common sentiments when we were in Taipei were: "we miss Fu Yam, Brian, zhong ma's cooking, our tour guide- Sky, Lala mountain... & KILO (their beautiful dog)...!!!"
Indeed, we do not mind a few more days up there!
The first impression was already impressive. Sky, our tour guide engaged by Fu Yam welcomed us at the airport. From the first day to the last, he was simply more than a tour guide. He was a friend who took care of our needs instead of merely fulfilling the itenary.
The itenary planned by Fu Yam was just right. Structured yet flexible. They were always ready to adjust to our needs and to our best interest ie help us avoid weekend crowds at some places of interest.
For first timers, we strongly recommend taking their tour package. You will find the transport provided from airport to Fu yam very helpful. It takes 2-3hrs car ride to reach. In between, they will stop for meals/ sightseeing and we did not find the journey dreadful. That was really thoughtful. For those with motion sickness, do prepared your own medication. The mountain van ride can be slightly tough for city people. However, most of us did not find it an issue.
Rooms are FANTASTIC. Very clean. Towels, slippers and basic toiletries are provided. There are thermal mattresses and that was a pleasant surprise during a relatively cold night (10-20 degrees).
We were in Fu Yam 1-3 Mar. Spring is a good time to go. The weather is cool. Colors at the mountains are awesome: a sea of green blended with occasional white/ red blossoms. Water along the stream is cooling. The sound of it hitting against the rocks simply rejuvenated the tired city soul. The night sky of stars is also another bonus. You are also likely to be their only guests, or maybe with at most 1 other group. Peace and quietness is guaranteed.
Zhong pa & ma were so hospitable, we felt very welcomed. Zhong ma's cooking is really.... Good! The portion was generous and we really can sense the sincerity.
Something that really caught our group's attention was Brian, son of Zhong pa/ma. Wow, a trendy young man up on the mountains...! Also, the access to wi-fi, tv programmes... This blend (nature & technology) is really interesting. For city people who cannot withdraw from Internet and tv immediately, you need not worry. Nonetheless, we would still advise you to spend more time with nature... !
Overall, all 5 of us were very satisfied. No complains... Really. We believe you will enjoy too :)
