Chiayi to Taroko Gorge

by babesally

Hello

I am planning to visit Alishan and Taroko Gorge, will tavel to Chiayi from Taipei, visist Alishan. Can i go from Chiayi to Taroko Gorge, is there a direct transportation link? Or do I need to go from Chiayi to Taichung then change bus to Hualina, then from Hualian to Taroko Gorge?


And when I travel from Taipei down to chiayi, most likely will arrive in the late afternoon. Are there still buses availabel for going to Alishan? What time is the last bus from Chiayi to Alishan?

Many thanks

Hello,

You can't go directly from Chiayi to Hualien(Taroko Gorge). You could try going to Taichung first, where there are buses/trains to Taipei. Or you could also take a long-distance taxi from Taichung to Hualien.

I'm not sure about the Taipei-Chiayi part because I did it by car.

Travel Tips for Chiayi

Chiayi's Peculiar Customs

by eric_ives

Are there any customs or cultural traits that set Chiayi's happy residents apart from the rest of the Taiwanese? If you read accounts of early Western visitors to Chiayi (missionaries a century ago, not the Dutch during the colonial era) you'll hear about the curious custom of stone-throwing games. Evidently the young men of Chiayi used to throw stones at each other for fun and amusement, sometimes killing each other (if accounts can be believed). This custom no longer endures, but ask any elders if they heard stories about the stone-throwing when they were children.

Chiayi was a hotbed of opposition to the KMT, so the central government didn't do much to fund economic development in Chiayi until the 1980s. As a result, there was a high concentration of traditional buildings and Japanese colonial wooden architecture in Chiayi. This is changing as economic development spells the doom of many old buildings.

One old custom probably persists. This is the rite of passage in which young men race their motorcycles through the Wen Hua night market, missing pedestrians by inches as their motorcyles, badly in need of new mufflers, scream through the crowds. This diversion is related to the custom of lighting bottle rockets and firing them from one's motorcycle or scooter while racing down the streets during the Autumn Moon Festival.

"Cherry Blossoms"

Here, Mt. Ali. We came there on Feb. It was a good time for seeing cherry blossoms.
Actually, I haven’t been there for ten years. While we arrived there, only a amazing view I can see, cherry blossoms surround whole mountain…

"The Entrance of the Mt.Ali forest park"

The beautiful background behind us is made of colorful mosaics. Is it special and creative idea,right?

There are two sides of plum blossoms

"A Gauze Curtain"

While we walked for a while, the scenery in my eyes sight attracted me to stay for taking a picture. The mountains around us are covered by cloud, which looked like a gauze curtain cover mountains faces.
