I’m thinking of going to Alishan next week (wednesday maybe) but am having trouble fiding ho(s)tel websites let alone making reservations (no credit card).
More experienced Forumosans please enlighten me: Do you think it’s possible to just take the train up there and try and find a place to sleep there? (I am not picky) I hear weekdays are quieter anyway.
Some internet writings say that there are ho(s)tel employees milling around at the station waiting to offer their services, but those posts were some years old.
Thanks for everything! I just arrived in Taipei 3 days ago, and will stay for 3 months, studying at the MTC.
