9/30/2010: I woke up at 4 AM sharp and was ready to go well before the 5 AM train to the sunrise viewing point.
There was a small crowd at the lookout point, so just a few minutes before sunrise, I walked a bit further up the mountain road and found a secluded spot for myself.
The train left at 6:50 AM to go back to the hotel area, and from there I walked around the giant cedar pathway.
I caught a 11 AM bus back to Chiayi, where we had a stop in Fanlu. This place reminded me of southeastern Kentucky.
I arrived in Tainan at about 1 PM, and bought a ticket for a 3:25 train to Tainan. After a 40 minute train ride, I arrived at Tainan Station.
