  1. Hi. I'm planning for a trip to Taiwan this June. Will be there for like 7-8 days. Do you think there will be enough time for me to visit Hualien, Sun Moon Lake, Cinjing, Alisan and Farmosan Aboriginal Cultural Village? I would have to keep 3 days for Hualien coz am visiting a friend there. Wanted to visit the Lavender Farm in Kaohsiung as well but most likely will be impossible. Please advise. Thank you.

    1. It is possibly if you skip Taipei,Kaohsiung,Taichung(Lavender Farm)

      刪除
  2. Ok. I think I will skip those and probably the Farmosan Aborginal Cultural Village as well since it's an amusement park. Prefer to enjoy the nature. If I need any advice will ask again yah. Probably after I've planned my iterinary will ask you if it's ok or not. Thank you so much!!!

  3. Hello. Sorry to disturb you again. I'm contemplating how I should go to Alishan. Will it be easier and nearer to go from Taichung or Kaohsiung? And do you recommend a night stay in Alishan or I should just make it a day trip?

    1. Chiayi is in the middle of Taichung & Kaohsiung. Not much difference.
      I would suggest that you can stay overnight at Alisan since it takes 2.5hr on the winding mountain road. And you won't have time to enjoy the forest railway.

      刪除
  4. Ok. Is there any recommended place to stay in Alishan?

    1. If you have enough budget, try Alisan House
      http://www.alishanhouse.com.tw/traffic.asp
      There are also some others hotel you can try if they accept booking online

  5. Hello again. I'm trying to find the best way to go from Cinjing to Hualien on 23 June which is a Thursday. Not too sure if I should travel the mountain roads or go down to Taichung and from there to Hualien. I understand that either way, both will take quite a long journey as well. Any better suggestion? By the way, I've narrowed down my place of visit to Alishan, Sun Moon Lake, Cinjing, Hualien and Taipei. Reaching and leaving Taipei 19 June 2pm and 27 June 10am. Please advise what's the best route I should take. Thank you!!!

    1. For the transportation, please refer to another post "Bus Trip Between Hualien & Cingjin"
      The Key: can you book the shuttle bus between Cingjin & Hualien? Ask the help from your hotel host.
      If you cannot book, follow itinerary 2 above. Stay at Taipei and move to Hualien. Go to Hualien via Taipei from Cingjing directly is exhaustive.

      刪除
    2. Ok. Thank you so much. I will ask the hotel that I'm staying to assist me. I found out some travelers will get a cab from Cinjing to Hualien with stops in few other places. Do you have any experienced and good cab driver that you can recommend?

      刪除
    3. If there are family with you, hiring a cab is a good choice.
      I'm afraid that I cannot provide list. You can find some lists in Tripadvisors. Since it is a full day driving, the price is around NTD 6000-8000.
      You can also ask your hotel host to hire a cab for you. Then the quality of the driver is under the guarantee of the host.

  6. Thank you for posting this! I will only be in Taipei for 12 nights, so I am thinking of following your itinerary for two weeks except cutting out Taichung. That way I will also avoid going to Sun Moon Lake on the weekend (since I arrive on June 16, which is a Wed.). Does that sound good? Thank you for your input.

    1. If your transportation arrangement is ok, your plan would be gooed

      刪除
  7. Or would it be better for me to spend two nights in Taichung and go to Sun Moon Lake on a day trip?

    回覆刪除
  8. Technologically, both are doable. The choice depending on your preference.

  9. Hi Sullivan, I am going to travel for 15 days on 30 Oct - 13 Nov, going clockwise: Hualien, Taitung, Tainan, Alishan, Cingjing, Taichung, Taipei. I am thinking to rent a car from Hualien and drive myself because it saves time and more flexible. But I am worried about the mountain roads in Alishan and Nantou area. Is it safe to drive on our own? Is the GPS clear and reliable?

    回覆刪除
    回覆
    1. The road condition is under great monitor and maintenance. GPS is also clear reliable. The key problems are:
      1. If you don't have experience along the winding road, drive slowly.
      2. Confirm that you can rent and return the car at different places.

    1. Try the day trip itinerary examples of Taipei.
      It would be cold and raining at Mt Qixing in Jan. But you can go to Yanminshan for Cherry blossom.

    1. Yes, your itinerary is doable by taxi.
      D2 would be late. The trip may be over 12 hours and arrive Taipei after 9pm.

    1. It is the right time to watch cherry blossom in Formosan Aboriginal Park, which is next to Sun Moon Lake

  13. Hi, will be going to Taiwan this coming November for 5 whole days. We already booked our accommodation at Taipei(specifically at Zhongshan). But we don't like to spend all our 5 days in Taipei only. Seeing your suggested itineraries, i'm considering a 1 day tour at any of the ff: alishan, toroko gorge, taichung, sun moon lake. Can you suggest me an itinerary pls? Thank you.
