2. Car

I rented the car with chauffeur (Day Tour from Taichung: Private Car 10 Hours) from KKday. The price depends on language and number of people. Total price for 1-4 people is about NTD 5,500 for English Tour. The price for Chinese tour is different from English Tour about NTD 900. English tour is more expensive. There is no guide, just only chauffeur. You can create your own itinerary within 5 spots and 10 hours, very convenient. Pick up and returning point can be different spot so you can take your luggage in car. It takes almost 2 hours from Taichung to Cingjing Farm.

Pick up point: Taichung City Center, Taichung Railway Station, Taichung High-Speed Railway Station, Taichung Airport, Cingjing bed and breakfast, Sun Moon Lake bed and breakfast.

Returning Points: Taichung / Cing Jing / Sun Moon Lake 


Vehicle Type:

1-4 passengers - 5 or 7-seater 

5-6 passengers - 7 or 8 seater.

I bought local sim so I could contact with chauffeur. In case you don't have local sim, make an appointment (exact time and place) where you get off the car.

This is the entrance. You will pass the exit gate, then the entrance. If you rent the car (like me), ask chauffeur to pick up at exit gate.
I went there on rainy day so it's hard to take photo. There are many tourists visiting Cingjing Farm even rainy day.

Unfortunately, I visited the farm on rainy day so I could not see the blue sky like the photo on farm's website. 


Cingjing Farm Map

I started to walk to the right side (Hanyan Pavilion) so that I could see the panorama view from the pavilion. There are maple trees so you can see the colorful foliage in autumn around this pavilion. 


I could see Sheep Show Stage from the pavilion. The visitors can watch sheep shearing show. The show is everyday except Wednesdays and rainy days. Unfortunately, I am the one who miss the show. The show take 30 minutes. 


The visitors can get closer and take photo with sheep. They walk freely within this farm even on rainy day.



I think Cingjing Farm is not a huge farm comparing with other farm but you can see beautiful view on sunshine days. There are few activities and attractions. The animals are only sheep and horse so I spent time here only 1-1.30 hour approximately.


This is the exit gate. You can tell your chauffeur to pick up around this area. There are the shops (not much) selling food and souvenirs.
