About Chiayi, Taiwan

Chiayi (嘉義) is a county in Taiwan, located on the west coast of the island and stretching well into the interior, where it borders Nantou to the northeast.

Like most of Taiwan, the climate of Chiayi is very humid, with high rainfall, highest at the higher-altitude interior areas. The climate changes drastically with elevation, ranging from tropical through subtropical and up into colder temperate areas at the higher altitudes.

Chiayi is home to Ali shan (阿里山), or mount Ali, which is famous for its high mountain oolongs. Ali shan oolong is one of the most well-known oolongs of Taiwan. Ali shan oolong is not the same as Li shan oolong; Li shan (pear mountain) is located in Taichung County, a county farther north that does not border Chiayi.
