Nantou County is the second largest county in Taiwan. People near and far visit this beautiful county because it offers a certain rustic charm that cannot be found in bigger cities in Taiwan. Every corner of Nantou can be explored - from the vibrant Puli and Caotun townships to the smaller ones such as Jiji and Zhushan, travelers are sure to fall in love with the county’s peace and serenity.
Downtown Nantou is not very big but is charming enough to explore on foot. Travelers are advised to explore the area with a guide who knows his way around. Taxis are readily available but they are notorious for not using their meters and for this reason you should first negotiate and establish a fee before climbing in.
Nantou is an ideal place to visit all year long, but travelers generally visit between March and April when the peach and plum trees are in full bloom and the tea plantation workers are harvesting.
