stopover to Alishan mountains or Nantou countryside. The food is good along ChuiYang street near DayPlus hotel.
Chiayi was a Taiwan city getting popular. This city is the start point for people going to Ali Shan area.
Chiayi had a night market which offered food, clothing and varieties articles.It is also the only city in Taiwan offering turkey for the meal. Chiayi is also a famous fish market which offers fresh and cheap seafood. Highly recommend to people who travel to Taiwan to stay here least 2 to 3 days.
If you are staying mid hill or near Alishan, there is not much night activities basically. However, the air over there is very fresh and is a good place for sightseeing and hiking.
A very nice city , but the traffic is not good, passengers should pay attention on the cars on the road.
Foods are delicious and not expensive, the culture and historical spots are good...
Forest bath, imagine where you can leisurely! Drawback is that the forest train diesel smell! Hope the future of electric cars on the forest is better! Watch the sunrise number does not control, causing the crowd is a disadvantage of a long rope! I was disappointed that this place should be quiet appreciation! rather than to take pictures of .
..... by the way, the mountain foot temperature difference of 13 degrees, remember to bring a warm jacket!
i can say it is a medium city and it is quite comfortable as it is not crowded with peoples and traffics compared to Taipei.
Simple and Quiet city. All attractions were within walking distance. Many people will tend to bypass this city to get to Alishan.
Might be good to stay here a little longer to rest and do a little bit of walking. Oh please get good walking shoes though.. thats important..
It was a budget hotel, in the township of Alishan. The service was slow as there is barely anyone at the counter.
I had to call someone by their phone to come and when the lady come she was good at explaining about the tours and the walks, etc. even though she didnt speak much english, she did what she could. The hotel was very basic and it had heater and electric blanket provided which I didnt use. It had all you can eat breakfast buffet at a diferent hotel which the hotel give me a ticket for but was ok.
This is a more country style place, nth special compare with Tai pei if you are typical city person. Local people there is definitely nice and food is fresh and yummy.
It is very easy to travel form Chiayi to all the surrounding places by bus, trains or taxi. People are friendly.
Quiet city but poor tourist attraction. Free of charge jail visiting but not well organized guiding. Old Japanese village reconstitution but nothing is open to visit! Nice old train station but poor time schedule to visit ALISHAN mountain by train
Home of mother nature with good fresh air and cooling temperature. Very minimum pollution and people.
A very good place to relax and recharge.
It's a quiet town with most travelers looking to get atop to Alishan. Did not have a chance to see much
Chiayi is between Tainan and Alishan. Many tour agency will often bring you to Tainan for their Mud-spa, followed by the charcoal-grilled bamboo chicken.
If you are budget traveler, you may ask the local on how to get about the busstation to GUANZHILING! Understand that Tainan has one of the worlds'4 mud-spa ability. Must go must go!

Chiayi for us is a stop over to our trip to Alishan, however the town is fill with places to find good food as well and for tourists looking to have a good time shopping
Chiayi is not big. I explored the city mainly by walking. The cultural centre, natural museum, old prison, Chiayi Park, the 228 Memorial Park are all within walking distance.
But one thing I do not like about the city is that there are too many motor-cycles on the road. The fun of strolling around the night market was very much damaged by the motor-cycles running around you and the foul air they produced.
You can visit the local market and street, but the reason why you are in this city is because you are going up to Alisan early morning the next day.
Chiayi is a smaller city in Taiwan. The weather is great with less population. People are friendly and living costs are lower than Taipei.
I went to Chiayi railway station on my way to Alishan. It's a beautiful town and I really missed the Turkey rice there.
Very friendly, helpful people, who went out of their way to assist travellers/tourists. Loved the museum, and the universities
Chiayi is a smaller town with delicious turkey rice. The Kwork Family restaurant sticky rice n turkey rice are delicious.
The opposite soya n rice milk is famous in the morning with delicious sanwiches for breakfast
Not much impression, if you go from middle of taiwan to southern part, this hotel can be a choice to take a rest
