Where to sleep in Alishan:The ideal is to sleep inside the park, because that way you can do the trail to see the sunrise, you can do all the trails with ease without having to do kilometers later in the car, and you can enjoy the park with fewer people. Now, we already warned you that the hotels inside the park are quite horrible and very expensive. The best is Alishan House, which also has a Spa. Prices start at around € 250 per double room, but include breakfast and dinner. There are other cheaper hotels in the park, but the quality is also worse.
If you can't find a hotel inside the park (they sell out very easily, you have to book well in advance), the closest you have is Leye (40min by car) and Fenqihu (50min by car).
The best search engines to find a hotel in Alishan are:
- Booking.com: they always have very good offer, and the search engine is very simple and intuitive. It works very well and you usually pay at the hotel.
- Agoda.com: sometimes it has better offers, but we like the search engine less (it is more confusing) and you have to pay in advance on the page.
