Alishan is the most beautiful and majestic place I have ever been. The sunset over the sea of clouds was absolutely breathtaking. A must see.

Waking up at 4am and queing up for the train ride is worth all the effort to view the beautiful sunrise

A must for those who go Chiayi. I braved the motion sickness to travel up and down the hill. But absolutely worth it! Views are spectacular. Every scene is picturesque.

It's not worth waking up at 3am to catch the Alishan train for the sunrise. More breathtaking views from other mountains like Tailuge. Would recommend day trip and stay in the mid level or Jiayi to get better value accommodation instead of the Alishan town.
