Introducing Guanziling (Kuanziling)
The Guanziling area is essentially one long dip off County Rd 172 on leafy Township Rd 96. The village, on the eastern end of the dip, is divided into lower (the older part of town) and upper sections that are joined by a series of stone steps for walking. There's an ATM in the 7-Eleven in the lower village.
It’s possible to visit Guanziling as a day trip from Tainan or Chiayi. Should you want to stay here, there are a few hotels remaining from the Japanese era in the lower village. The posher resorts are in the upper village.
