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 +.
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).

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