Cingjing, Nantou County 清境，南投縣
Started the day early as we only had a little less than a day planned for Cingjing. Bad bad day to be up in the mountains. It was raining all the way from Taichung to Cingjing.
Cingjing Farm 清境农场 and Small Swiss Garden 小瑞士花园
Weather was so bad that I could only hear the voice of the host, not seeing him, a lot of “meh…meh…” noises as well just not the sight of sheep when the show just started.
Shortly after the Sheep’s Show was another performance, with a “standing ovation” of course.
Small Swiss Garden (entrance fee included in Cingjing Farm’s ticket), small but sweet and nicely decorated. A pity with the weather in the way of a highly instagrammable place.
Cingjing Farm Entrance Fee: NT$160 (weekday) NT$200 (weekend) NT$80 (with a Youth Travel Card), inclusive of entrance to Small Swiss Garden.
Though a bad weather for exploring, it was perfect for steamboat which was included as dinner from our accommodation.
I would highly recommend staying at least 2 nights up in the mountains after this trip. There is more than just Cingjing Farm 清境农场 which you spent almost 3hrs travelling to, and you simply cannot visit the rest all in a day.
