[quote=“TomHill”]Just booked 2 nights at the Teachers Hostel at Sun Moon Lake. Very expensive, 4,200 NT per night. Oh, well.
Wuchi has a pretty cool harbour.
JDsmith, thanks for the tip about the farm, I will let you know how the coffee tasted![/quote]
The Teach hostel is 4200? For what? Two rooms? Surely not a double (two beds)? This must be the rack rate. Ask for a discount.
In any case, I don’t recommend it for you and mom as it’s a walk up from the village making it inconvenient to get to cafes, restaurants, the boardwalk, buses, etc. And parts of the walk up where not lit up last time I was there. Your mom may not like that.
Also, the view is not as nice as a place right on the water. Stay at somewhere like the Apollo or El Dorado. Right on the lake, balcony views, and right below a string of attractive cafes now along the water’s edge.
You may think the teach hostel will be more quiet and intimate, but it really feels more like it’s out of the way. The only plus is it’s right by the Lalu for lunch or dinner.
