Combining the best of Taiwan’s ancient historical treasures and its splendid natural beauty, our three day Mid Island History and Nature Tour tour brings you from one of Taiwan’s most popular spots for temple hopping into its most scenic mountain regions. Along the way you’ll explore traditional art and culture, eat a plethora of delicious Taiwanese dishes, drink some of the world’s finest tea, forest-bathe amid ancient trees, and witness both an unforgettable sunrise and sunset from a mountain peak. There will also be plenty of opportunities to explore, both in the winding lanes and alleys of Ancient Lugang and in the high-altitude forests of Alishan. We’ll also stop in Taichung to explore the city’s art scene before returning to Taipei. Please note: This tour requires a moderate bit of walking, so comfortable shoes are recommended..

  • Day 1:

    Taipei, Lugang, Chiayi

    History is the focus of day one. After picking you up, we’ll head to Lugang, a colorful, history-drenched town on the west coast boasting over 200 temples. We’ll visit the Longshan and Tienhou temples, two of Taiwan’s most important religious sites. Afterward, we’ll wander the winding, art-filled alleys and lanes of Lugang, getting involved in the local arts and crafts scene and sampling various dishes for which the area is famous. In the evening we’ll head to Chiayi for some R&R in a 4-star hotel.

  • Day 2:

    Chiayi, Yuantan Ecological Park, Alishan

    On day two the focus turns to central Taiwan’s astounding natural beauty as we head into the mountains, stopping at a tea farm or two to sample the wares before heading to the Yuantan Ecological Park, known for its natural landscapes, flora and fauna. After visiting the park, we’ll climb deeper and higher still, reaching the heart of the Alishan Scenic area in time to relax before watching an absolutely epic sunset in the mountains.

  • Day 3:

    Alishan, Taichung, Taipei

    We’ll want to rise early on day three to take the Alishan Forest Railway to the peak, for its here where we’ll witness the famed sea of clouds as they roll through the valleys below in the hour after sunrise. (Photographers will want to get up earlier to set up their tripods for amazing shots.) After witnessing this magnificent spectacle, we’ll have some time to hike among ancient cypress trees and breath in the cool mountain air. On the way back to Taipei, we’ll stop in Taichung for a bit of art, culture (and maybe a beer) in Taiwan’s central city.

Worth a while to partipate their private trip.

My family and I made a request on tour in the beginning of May. We took 8 seated van and the car was comfy with excellent driver Steve. Plus, our tour guide, Michael was knowledgable on food, culture, and great sceneries. I remember when I asked Michael we would like to try seafood for lunch. He immediately thought of something and provide varieties of choices for us to decide. Furthermore, they provide one of exclusive service to provide a photographer or intern accommdates the whole trip to make a video clip afterward without additional charges which I have never see this sort of service before in other countries. Althought the tour is a bit pricy, but I will definitely day worth a while to partipate their private trip.
