Nov 08 – Cingjing Minsu 清境 – 觀星園景觀山莊 (Starry) / 愛力家生活村民宿 (Energy Home Vacation) / 翠湖步道

Here’s my first self trip to Cingjing.   I stayed at two different Cingjing minsu – Starry Minsu 觀星園景觀山莊 / Energy Home Vacation 愛力家生活村民宿.

We took the e-go bus to Cingjing 清境.   Need to board the bus at Taipei main station 645am.  It took about 4 hours plus to reach there – 1130am.

We alighted at the Sea Cloud minsu and called the Starry minsu to pick us.

Here’re some pictures of the Starry minsu:

It’s at the top of Cingjing – can have a good view at their open balcony.

Room is pretty simple but amenties well-equiped.

A small balcony inside the room where you can view the scenary too.  We saw a lot of sea clouds here.

Steamboat dinner is inclusive at Starry minsu.  It’s really delicious!

When we reached Cingjing on the first day, it was raining.  The next day, the sky seemed clear.

After one night at Starry minsu, we moved to another minsu – Energy Home Vacation Village 清境愛力家生活村民宿 that is withing walking distance to 7-11/Starbuck.  This minsu has quite a number of wooden chalets.

This is the main reception area.

The chalets are over at another side.

The room furnishing is quite nice.  There is also a small balcony outside.

Also a roof window on top of the room.

Shangri-la hanging resort is just next door.  It’s a beautiful minsu too.

Off the beaten track翠湖步道

The walk trail behind the Energy resort is really beautiful especially on a sunny day.  As you walk, you can see many beautiful minsu and tea garden around there.

Need at least an hour walking this trail and enjoy the scenary!

    Hi, I also booked Energy Home Vacation for my November 2015 trip but couldn’t find much review in Trip advisor. Glad that I found your blog which details about Taiwan, it really helps me when planning my itinerary 🙂

    May I know is it easy to go around by ourselves from there? how about journey to Cingjing farm, is it a walking distance or need to drive up?

    Thanks in advance 🙂
