About Me

Enjoy my life no matter where I am.

My friends always think I am an easy going person.
I like to take everything in a positive way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

At the beginning,I just wanted to help people. At that moment,I thought it's a fun way to help people and make new friends.
As time goes by, couch surfing is kind of like the nutrition of life. You can see different people have their own ways to live.It's also a way to travel by listening to others'stories. I think that's why I keep doing this.
If you have any questions about Chiayi,just feel free to ask.

Interests

In my free time,I like to read,watch movies ,hang out with my friends,cook and dance.
Dancing is my favorite hobby. I used to go to a dancing studio on Sundays.
When I am in a bad mood,I usually dance in my room...ha...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

♤Living in Australia with working-holiday visa for one year.
♤Because of Australia, I quit the job which I had worked for 8 years in 2011. I am not sure the amazing part is working at the same place for 8 years or quiting....haha

Some information about Alishan.
(Including timetable for the bus)

Most people come to Chiayi for Alishan.
The Alishan train only takes people to Fenqihu, not to Alishan.Besides, it costs like 11 USD for one way. ( You can feel I don't recommend this way...haha😆)
There are 3 ways to go up there.

One is hitchhiking,which is not so hard in Chiayi if you are willing to try.
Another one is to take a bus from Chiayi city to Alishan. It normally takes 2.5hrs.The bus ticket costs around 8USD one way.But if you have an easy card, it costs around 4USD!😉
Usually people will spend 3~4 hours walking around in Alishan Park.Plus, it needs entrance fee for the park.
The fee is 10USD for a person if you don't take a bus. If you do, you just pay 5USD...🙄
The earliest bus to there is at 6:05am;the lastest bus to be back at 5:10pm.
Timetable for the bus

(* means also going to Fenqihu)
The last way is renting a scooter. I think it's a good way to explore the areas along the way to Alishan.

Hope to help you guys who want to worship Alishan.
