Swiss chalet in taiwan?


#1

:?: i was watching my mom’s satillite TV the other day (here in DC), and i saw that there was this place about 2 hours away from Taichung, it is sort of a swiss chalet resort area. the hotel looks beautiful! i was wondering if anybody has ever been to this place? i might be planning a trip there during my next visit to taiwan. sorry i do not know what it is called… i do not know much chinese. oh yea, this places looks very “sound of music” with the mountains. and this other place you can visit near the swiss chalet village is where a new zealender is raising sheep. :wink:

is it expensive to visit this swiss chalet?

Shangrila Hanging Garden Resort. The New Zealander is the “star” of the sheep shearing show at the neighboring dude ranch. :slight_smile:

To the topic at hand. I went to some hotel about an hour from Taichung on the weekend. Beautiful mountainous scenery, triple hot spring spa (cold, warm and hot). Lost the brochure, but will try to find out later in the week. Quite cheap too, I think it was something like $NT5,300 for a 4 person room. Check out at 12, so plenty of time to shake the hangover off with an early morning dip.

Cool place. Anyone been there?

I was hoping that you were going to say that they were opening a Swiss Chalet is Taichung. Rotisserie chicken anyone?

Overall, I would say if you are travelling to Hehuanshan or Chingjing Farm this is by far the best place to stay. However, like most rural hotels in Taiwan, the food was miserable and the service non-existent. According to the waiter at the hotel, the Kiwi at Chingjing is an entertainer, not a “real” farmer as such. :wink:

:bulb: It looks like a good place to bring a focus group or a Zen retreat!
