About Alishan Township
It's like a secret mountain (ok, ignoring the tourist hordes that come here). It's nice and cool, filled with tall trees and trails. We woke up at 3.30am to see the sunrise, but it was raining so we didn't see anything. The adorable thing was that someone from the Alishan park was there where everyone was watching the sunrise, and he was updating us on the expected time of the sunrise. He sang some songs and told a few jokes while we were all waiting and shivering in the rain. He apologized when there was no sunrise as it was still raining but he said sometimes it happens.

In search of Taiwan's nightlife, I made my way to Taoyuan, a county neighboring Taipei. For movement within and around Taipei, I used the Taipei MRT (subway system), which is very modern and extremely efficient. In Taoyuan, I entered a Filipino night club called 'Thai Ok' and to be fair it was quite seedy! But otherwise, Taiwan has a pretty good and fun nightlife.
