This town is very small but it is very cute. The people are incredibly nice and we bought some high quality tea from a local farmer.

Old town is small but nice with local food but i was attracted by the train station, so i took train to Chiayi in the afternoon. About 2 hours is enough for Fenchihu exploration i think but the trail need a night stay. It is...More

Old Town, old street with all the local food stuff. However, I guess you need to find the right store for a bento set, the place I went was not fantastic. But we managed to find the aiyu shop! Don't just stay in the old...More

If you're looking to relax and stroll - it's a quiet place. The bento lunch box was just ok. Nothing special.

Very quaint. So little place but so many things to see, eat and buy! So many picturesque places. A cameraman's dream place to shoot.

The old town stores and restaurants are very cute. Make time to take the Cedar Boardwalk around the outskirts of town, beautiful area, you may find some surprising sights and beautiful forest with cedars and bamboo, among other trees. Lots of cool, old buildings.

It would probably be a shame to go to Alishan and miss Fenchihu. The city is surrounded by hills, which you can climb, with the beautiful views and bamboo forests everywhere. Also, once there, go to the market which is just next to the train...More
