After Taroko Gorge and Alishan nature visits, it’s time to head back to Taipei for the ultimate city experience.
We were contemplating on stopping by Ching Yi (Swiss Farm) in the middle of Taiwan and/or Sun Moon Lake from Alishan.
And we decided to go with the touristy Sun Moon Lake for night as it is more convenient to get back to Taipei Main Station.
It’s unfortunate the B&B we booked for 1 night here at Sun Moon Lake was terrible horrible and appalling in condition in its own right.
Not even in comparison to the previous marvellous hotel stays at Taroko Gorge and Alishan.
The name is Ming Hu Bed and Breakfast, sure, the location is prime – just right beside the busy pier at town centre convenient to catch the bus too as it’s a mere 8-10 minutes walk away.
However, the room was not kept clean, dusty and all. Bathroom reeks of unpleasant mouldy air….brrhh….it still gives me the nasty chill when I think back.
The 1 day 1 night trip is very short and feel that it’s enough to cover the area.
The bad accommodation really broke the experience and also I was anxious to get to Taipei.
Moreover, that weekend was very misty to have a clear picture of the surrouding :(.
So, it was an overall so so touristy experience for us.
