(I should have written this review a year ago..)
I stayed a night at Alishan 20/10/2009 to 21/10/2009, the hotel I stayed with was Dafeng. HOWEVER I am not recommending this hotel to fellow travellers.
I have chosen a bad date to travel, the reason - one month ago taichung suffered servred earthquack. There wasnt any public transports going up to Aishan, I used xinxin minsu transport. I told the minsu staff that i am going to stay in Dafeng but i do not know how the message got across. and so when the driver found out that i am not staying in Xinxin Minsu my pal and i was charged more for the ride up the mountain. during the journey up the driver communicated with Dafeng which kind of upset me... driver: "fei yang lai le" which means "fatty sheep is arriving" the driver use taiwan dialect to communicate, and i happen to understand.
Arriving at Dafeng, the surrounding looked like a ghost town, (which i was expecting) all shops are closed, including the 7-11 store. The main attraction comin up to Alishan is watching the early morning sun rise. so the sad part was the staffs at Dafeng told me flaty that they do not provide this tour, and there is nothing they could do, well.. i have to accept it.. their responsibilities were to keep the hotel open check me in and then check me out, and seems like the reason i came all the way up to Alishan was to "enjoy" the coldness.
I was lucky God didnt forsake me, there were 2 other travellers who stayed at another different accomodation were going to watch sun rise the next morning, all thanks to them!
the owner of their accomodation went down the mountain to pick up them because there wasnt any public transport. I salute him for his customer service attitude. anyways a picture speaks a thousand the following are pictures i took. rooms are clean and affordable, if i remember correctly the rates for double - quad are between US35-45, cheaper than Dafeng
