Enjoying nature's handiwork at Shibi Scenic Area
One of the highlights of a visit to the little village of Shibi, one of Yunlin (雲林) County's most scenic spots, is the journey there.
 
Explore Chiayi's Budai Fish Market, coastal area
When you visit the seaside village of Budai (布袋) along the coast of western Chiayi (嘉義) County, don't expect to see the 24 Heavenly Kings when they come ashore to visit the local gods.
 
The short but eventful life of Neihu Stream
The little Neihu Stream doesn't flow for very far, measuring less than five kilometers from its source on the border between Nantou and Yunlin counties to its mouth, where it flows into the much larger Clearwater River
 
The haunted Liu Mansion of Minsyong
The Taiwanese seem to be just as interested in ghost stories as people in other countries, yet few places in Taiwan are associated with specific ghosts or ghostly incidents. An exception, however, is the Minsyong Haunted House (民雄鬼屋), half-an-hour's drive north of downtown Chiayi.
 
Ancient masterpiece: Ten Thousand Year Gorge
Although it's only a little after nine in the morning, the sun is beating down fiercely on us as we're riding rented scooters along a mountain road, winding down into the deep gorge of the Neihu Stream in Yunlin's mountainous eastern extreme.
 
Into the woods: Aowanda and its wonderful waterfalls
Sometimes I forget that I live in Taipei. If I squint my eyes a little as I'm walking down the street, blur out the mountains and Taipei 101 in the background, it's easy to think that I'm back in the States
 
The lush natural beauty of Tai Ping
The mountains of Chiayi (嘉義) County offer an almost endless supply of beautiful spots waiting to be explored by weekend city-dwellers and keen hikers alike, and plenty of mountain resort areas offer cool air, enchanting scenery and the chance to either relax and unwind, or stretch the legs and work up a sweat.
 
Fenchihu, a key scenic spot along Alishan railway
Back in the days when the only way to reach Alishan (阿里山) was by rail, Fenchihu (奮起湖) was the biggest and most important stop-off station. It was here that the train changed engines, and here where people rested, bought lunch, and relaxed.
 
Hiking in Doulishan, Chiayi county
Chiayi County, home of the Alishan Scenic area, has more than its share of hiking resorts and trails. One of the best of these -- and at less than 35 minutes drive from Chiayi (嘉義) City, one of the most convenient -- is Doulishan (獨立山).
 
The Botanical Garden in Taichung
In the crisp morning air during the Chinese New Year holidays, we left for our three-day trip to Taiwan's third largest city -- Taichung (台中). One of our most remembered visits during the trip was to the Botanical Garden.
