Fenqi Lake is not a lake. It is a stop on the way from Chiayi to Alishan. Many people take a break here. There are restaurants and homestays on the old street. Fenqihu Bento is very famous, cost-effective and tastes good. There is a railway museum, you can stroll around. There are several plank roads opened nearby, you can take a walk, the scenery is good, there are few people, and the air is good. Like Alishan Scenic Area, they are all towering trees.
Fenqi Lake is located in Zhonghe Village, Zhuqi Township, Chiayi County. It is about 1405 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by mountains to the east, west and north, and the middle is low and flat and shaped like a dustpan. Therefore, it was formerly known as the dustpan lake. This area is located at the midpoint of the Alishan Forest Railway It takes about two hours to drive here, and most of the tourists hit the tip and buy bento here, so it is called the kingdom of bento. In addition to the cultural customs of Fenqihu Old Street and the railway station, Fenqihu 16 scenic spots are another major feature of Fenqihu tourism. They are the "square bamboo" named after the branches are square. The roots of the loquat tree and the root of the Sam tree are connected with the "Mother Tree", the "Da Frozen Mountain Viewing Sun Peak" with a two-story observation platform on the top of the observation peak, the "Bat Palace" and the "Ling "Rock Eighteen Caves", "Mingyue Caves", "Giant Tombstones", "Dongtian Fudi", "Tianmo" and other tourist attractions
The very moody railway platform is full of nostalgic atmosphere. The unknown flowers on the side of the platform, the song of Teresa Teng in the ear. Walking on the rails, there is an instant feeling of a youth film! And compared to the well-known attractions like Alishan, there are really few people here, so you can enjoy it unscrupulously. Only by walking around the town can you really see the local people's culture and customs.

I booked the ride-sharing service in Alishan, and picked us up from Chiayi city in the first morning to the Alishan Visitor Center around noon. We stayed in Alishan for one night. We can be in Ali on the first afternoon and the next morning. Free activities in the mountains, the next day is close to noon, and then we will be picked up by a car to take us to the Taiwan Railway or High-speed Railway station in Chiayi City. The first stop on the way is at Fenchihu Old Street. You can dine in the restaurants on the street and go shopping at the same time. It’s old street, similar to Jiufen Old Street, it feels pretty good
