The Hotel: 民宿: 谷巴森林遊樂區

Room price: NT$1900 per night.

It’s a three people room. There are one double bed and one single bed.

The fridge is small and not so cold.

when we booked, Booking.com showed that there was no room left. We called the resort, the female owner said there was one room for us. When we paid the fee at the spot, the female owner said the rooms were not all booked. She said she didn’t want to make the rooms all booked, which is kind of strange. Later we found out that it was a motel in the past and there were so many rooms at that time. I guess they don’t want to rent out many rooms because they don’t have much staff. I only saw 4 staff in total.

The rooms:

We arrived at Miaoli around 9 pm by bus, rented a scooter, which was NT$500 per day. It’s more pricy then Yilan which is around 250 to 300 per day because there are few scooter rentals in Miaoli.
