【NANTOU 南投】ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CING JING FARM 清境農場

DAY 3: Cingjing Farm - Carton King  - Fengjia Night Market 清境 - 清境青青草原區 - 紙箱王 - 逢甲夜市

Cingjing, the first thing that came across my mind was “sheep”. 

ACCOMMODATION


We had a good sleep in Starry Minsu before exploring Qingjing Farm on the next day. Out of so many pretty European style homestay or hotels, we chose Starry Minsu because it’s at the highest peak of Cingjing. Click here for my Starry Minsu short review 


Complimentary dinner 

Complimentary breakfast 

TRANSPORTATION

I was struggling which was the best way to travel from Cingjing to Taichung as that was our next destination. The owner gave us a clearer picture of the transportation fare and we decided to get our driver to send us to Taichung. 
Option 1: Nantou Bus (NT265 / way) + Taxi to our homestay
Option 2: Private chartered car - from Cingjing to Taichung homestay (NT2000)

Ok! Settled! Checked out and let’s go....! 

BAGGAGE STORAGE

Our driver dropped us at the baggage storage area nearby Qingjing Farm. Storing your luggage here is FREE OF CHARGE.

Small Swiss Garden

The “Taiwan’s Little Switzerland” gives the beautiful Northern European atmosphere. Visit at dawn to enjoy the paradise in the mist when misty clouds started floating down from the mountains. We skipped this attraction because we will be going to Zhong She Flower Market in Taichung. 

We spent 4 hours (9am - 1pm) here, visited only a few main attractions. If you have more time or a full day in Cingjing, there are also other feature attractions you may want to visit such as Cingjing Skywalk, Guest House Vererans Museum & Bowang New Village, Sheep Sheering Show, Biological Experience Garden, Hiking (Guangshan Trail, Bu Bu Gao Sheng Trail, Shoushan Park, Sunset Trail, Cryptomerial Trail, Sakura Trail) and Magnificient Green Lake Scenery of the Wushoh Dam. 

FOOD

Mos Burger, 7-11, Starbucks, Food stores and restaurants are available around Cingjing Farm.

甕仔雞!! ( I don't know how to read it), it's a roasted chicken famous, you'll probably see it everywhere while on your way up or down from Cingjing. Besides, Angelica (vegetable) can also be found everywhere in Cingjing.

阿東甕仔雞
Highly recommended!! This is the best meal I ever had in Taiwan. We requested to stop here for a quick lunch before heading to Taichung. Ordered a Roasted Chicken and Angelica Eggs. We had a hard time and felt to gross tearing the whole chicken apart. Hahaha... Definitely worth the effort, the roasted chicken was so SO good!!







甕仔雞 Roasted Chicken | NT600


當歸雞蛋 Angelica Eggs | NT150  

I've finally checked my Cingjing "meh meh" travel list. Next, let's head to Taichung! (next post)
