Taiwanese Lantern Festival will be held in Jiayi in 2018. The festival will be arranged in combination with "water, land and air". The time of the festival will be 2018/2/16 (5) 3/11 (day). It will be divided into three exhibition areas: North Light District - South Court of the Palace Museum, Central Axis - Prince Avenue, South Light District - County Light District. It is known as the most extensive and longest-lasting lamp festival in history. The main lights of the Lantern Festival will be open at 3/2. The Jiayi High-speed Railway Station and the Jiayi Transfer Station have shuttle trucks to take visitors to the lantern exhibition area every afternoon. The lights will be turned off at 11 p.m. every day. It's beautiful and must not be missed.
The night in Jiayi is beautiful. The whole city is very nostalgic. Small motorcycles under 250cc are everywhere. The street at 11 o'clock at night is full of night queues. The pace is quite slow. It is very suitable for people to live in. It is also near Alishan. Jiayi specialty Turkey rice, local soymilk tea and so on are quite delicious.
Jiayi County, Taiwan Province, is bordered by the Taiwan Strait to the west, the Alishan Mountains to the East and the main peak of Yushan, Nantou County to the north, Tainan City to the south, Kaohsiung City to the South and Kaohsiung City to the east, Gangxi to the north and Yunlin County to the south, Bazhangxi to the South and Tainan City to the south. Jiayi mainly belongs to the Han nationality, while Zou and other minority nationalities are concentrated in Alishan Township.
Actually, there are Jiayi City (where the Taipei Railway Station is located) and Jiayi County (where the High-speed Railway Station is located). The economy and scale of these two counties and cities rank behind Taiwan Island. They feel that they are the most vernacular in the western region. However, with Alishan, the popularity of "Jiayi" is no less than that of Taipei, Kaohsiung and other big cities, but public transport is really inferior, and it will be no later than 2 p.m. Passenger transportation has gone up the hill. There are many bends in the mountain road to Alishan Forest Recreation Area. The temperature is much lower than that in the plain, but the beautiful scenery will definitely make you feel worse.
A relatively small place, living in a good environment, soon after walking there is a night market, Cultural Road night market, clothes and food are available. Things are not expensive, roadside snacks like stewed meat rice, very delicious, Zhongshan Road or near China Road.
Jiayi is located in the central part of Taiwan. Alishan is located in Nantou County of Jiayi. Many tourists only know Alishan. I don't know about Jiayi. I'm going to Alishan. Jiayi just spends one night in the transitional period. It feels that Jiayi has a beautiful environment, convenient transportation and no noisy tourists.
Jiayi is a city with a long history on Taiwan Island. Similar to Hualien, but different from Hualien, when you go out to see advertisements on the opposite street, the contents are not Ma Tan, but Jiayi Turkey Rice. They are also known as 30 or 50-year-old shops. Although there are many cars parked in the parking lot in front of the holiday station, the most spectacular one is the parking of motorcycles. Motorcycles are still a very important means of transportation for the people in Taiwan. We stayed overnight in Jiayi and left Jiayi Railway Station Square before dawn the next morning to Alishan by the "Taiwan Happy Line" bus. Jiayi City, which transited during the arrival of dawn, saw its appearance on the way.
