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. After getting our fill of ancient culture, we’ll head to Chiayi for an evening of luxury at the 5-star Nice Prince Hotel.

Day 2 / Chiayi, 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 over the mountains from the luxurious 5-star Alishan House Hotel.

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.

Excellent service.
My family just returned from our trip to Taiwan. Start from the very beginning, My Taiwan Tour has shown excellent service.Each one of us had the best experience in Taiwan. The trip was designed so professionally that the younger one do not feel bored and yet not too tiring for the elder one.We are loving every part of our 3 days tour. We did not expect to experience Taiwan as much as we just had. We have our annual family trip all over the countries and so far our Taiwan tour guide has been the best tour guide we had. Thanks to them everyone in the tour has made Taiwan the best travel destination.I would highly recommend My Taiwan Tour to anyone who has been or has not been at all to Taiwan because they make your trip pleasantly unforgettable!!!
