Sharing my 6D5N itinerary for Taichung + Cing Jing + Taipei + Yilan in Jan 2019

Link: http://www.flyhoneystars.com/2019/01...ng-jing-yilan/

Did a short climb in Taipei @ Jingmian Shan (aka Scissors Rock).

It was a good climb but it slightly scary towards the end..

It was a pretty hot winter this year. There wasn't snow at HeHuanShan! Oh wells.. global warming

Cingjing is quite a touristy area nowadays. The experience is good but half a day is good enough to cover most of cingjing alr.

Cingjing farm quite big. need 3 hours to explore. walk from the north entrance to the windmill also need 1 hour. still need to explore carton king, swiss garden.

last time i went for cingjing farm + hehuan mountain tour. tour guide didn't even have time to bring us to the windmill.

there is another tour which excludes hehuan mtn but allow visitors to have more time in cingjing farm, swiss garden and carton king.

The drive to hehuanshan is about 2h back n forth, not including stopover.
We even hike up the two nearby peaks.
Advantage is we stayed overnight there, so did one for each day.

Ha ha Cingjing quite small to me. The sheeps there are like domestic pets. In the morning see the sheep show, then walk around the hill. By noon prob finish liao lol. Zhen de no need tour guide lol. The swiss garden also quite small leh and they still charge entrance fee. The place feel quite man made/touristy. Is not the kind of real rustic farm/area you see in Australia / China / Thailand.

Ya excluding the travelling time and hehuan mtn.

Ok lah good to stay in Minsu for 1 night as you get to see the beautiful night and morning view.

For Cing Jing, I did a 2D1N there.

We reached our accom at about lunch time. Went over to Cing Jing Farm. After that went to the Skywalk and walked down to swiss garden. Entered Swiss Garden (honestly nothing much) and then took the public bus up to our accommodation and ate chicken in a restaurant nearby.

Next morning, 4:30am pickup for sunrise tour, About 7:30/8am went back at accom. Had breakfast, slept a bit before checking out. Had lunch at Old England before heading back down to Taichung.

To be honest, would be a lot better if we drove/hired driver but as there were only two of us, we opted for public transport and tours + a lot of walking..

I really enjoyed the scenery there. Felt really good to be high up on the mountains!
