fast and prompt email confirmation and reply by the lady boss.
once we arrive at the minsu, we were greeted by Mr Zhong. He bring us to the hotel lobby which is also the restaurant area. He pass us a map and brief us regarding the interests around the area, and the services provided by the minsu. In the end, we took up the offer to go see the sunrise and go watch the sheep show. Once he done the briefing, we went to the counter and do the check in with the lady boss. She is nice and friendly, and she addressed you by your name. Which I think, do help in making you feel at home.
Mr Zhong helped us to bring our luggage to our room door. We stay at level 1 so it just one more flight of stairs to the level. I recommend those traveling with elderly to request lower level with the lady boss . The number of stairs to climbed to the top level is tiring.
We went to walk some of the route given to us by Mr Zhong. After that we went back for dinner. The dinner was very good!, even my picky wife likes it a lot. It their Yun-Nan cuisine but a healthy version of it( Less oily). I do not know whether they changed their dinner menu regularly as I only stayed for 1 night.
Trip to see sunrise at He Huan Mountain.
Our driver is Mr Zhong, personally I feel he a very knowledgeable guy (he from some taiwan magazine and a avid mountain climber i suppose). He will bring us to some place to get use to the altitude and see stars before driving higher up to the Mountain. He also show us and introduce some of the history regarding CingJing and some interesting facts along the journey.
He also passed us his number so next time regarding any trip planning to Taiwan he can to introduce us as well as provide us help if we need it.
We went down a little later for breakfast as my wife was feeling a bit sick after the journey back from the mountains, Almost all the food was finish, the lady boss saw it and she personally went to inform the kitchen cooks to prepare more food for the 2 of us and another couple.
the room are not air-conditioned but it generally cooling even it summer. There are 2 windows that have mesh that you can open or close it. I do suggest you use the mesh at night as it is to prevent the insects from coming into your room while you sleeping. Bathroom are big and clean , There is this huge window with glass panel for you to view the whole of Cing Jing(higher the level, the better the view).
Overall, We had a good experience with this minsu and will recommend to people looking for value added minsu in Cing Jing.
