jasz18 & jesagal: Thanks! so cfm i shld be able to draw money from the ATM there right? I think i will just change 1.5K.. abit sian now coz now no summer clothes to buy....
S$1.5k should be more than enough to spend during the 8 days, unless you really going on a spending spree.

Anyway, you shouldn't have problem finding ATMs where you can withdraw cash from your bank account by using Cirrus. I've used the Visa version and the bank charge's S$5 per transaction.

Chiayi to Fenchihu / Alishan

With the recent closure of the Alishan Train Railway, currently the train only runs from Chiayi to Jiaoliping on weekends only.

Does anybody know any alternatives from Chiayi to Fenchihu or Alishan?

1)
By Train from Chiayi to Jiaoliping. But I don't know if there is any bus from Jiaoliping to Fenchihu or Alishan.

2)
By Bus from Chiayi to Fenchihu / Alishan, but i heard that it takes about 4-5 hours!? Is it true?

There are many drivers waiting at Chiayi Railway station, same price as taking the train. You can have more times to explore Alishan than speding on the transportation.
