雲舞樓民宿
This minsu is near to 清境國民賓館 (Guobin guesthouse, near to 7-11 or starbuck area), about 100m away.   The minsu also operates a resturant and specialises in yunan food ‘雲南大理段家私房菜’.  Many locals will go there to try the food. The scenary near the restaurant is also very nice.  Can do the walk trail – 落羽松步道.

In fact, I heard about this restaurant from another minsu as i asked around for good food.  (Have not been there)

Old England Manor
This minsu is a luxury beautiful castle.   It’s also under the same boss as Shangri-la hanging resort.

As the room rates are pretty expensive (at least $11000twn per night), you may want to experience the interior of the castle by having a meal.   A lunch meal like pasta can cost about $380twn +.

Margaret’s Garden

This is also a beautiful purple decorated cafe.  Although i have not been there, i saw some local blogs recommending this place.

Hehuansan Tour (合歡山專車)

There are 2 types of Hehuansan tour.  One is a half day tour and another is a sunrise tour.

For the Hehuansan half day tour, you may check with your minsu on the e-go bus (E-GO 台灣觀光巴士).

There are 2 timings: 830am and 1pm.   Each pax is $750twn (wkday).

For sunrise tour, the tour starts at 4am – 7am.
