8 Days - Taichung + Taipei (October)

Dear all,

I will be going Taipei for 8 days and would like to plan Taichung as my first 3 days trip. From Taoyuan airport, can anyone assist me if my itinerary is okay in Taichung:

Day1 - Taichung Fengjia
12pm - Arrive at Taipei Taoyuan airport and take bus to HSR to Taichung.
Then take bus to FengJia University (逢甲大學) and stay at Tomato room for a night
Places to go: Fengjia Night market, and any other places to recommend during afternoon?

Day 2 - Sun Moon Lake
Take bus to Sun Moon Lake from Nantou Bus station.
Stay one night at Laurel Villa 桂月村 or any better recommendation?
Places to go: Wen wu temple, 九族文化村 and any other recommendations?
Are 心之芳庭 moncoeur and Lavender Cottage here too?

Day 3 - Cingjing
Take bus to Puli then to Cingjing.
Stay one night at Starry Minsu
Places to go: 清清草原 and Little Swiss Garden

After Cingjing, is there any straight bus back to Taipei or do I have to take bus back to Puli -> Taichung station to take HSR back to Taipei?

Thank you.

Hi,

You may want to go Carton King for Day 1. Can check with your minsu how to go there. Can see my blog for taichung itinerary: www.wretch.cc/blog/sflow00

心之芳庭 moncoeur and Lavender Cottage are at Shinshe. Abt 1 hr drive from taichung city. These places are not at SML.

For Cingjing, you have missed out hehuansan, it's beautiful and can see sea clouds. Need to engage a driver there. I understand that e-go bus also have half day tour. YOu can email Starry minsu boss.

There's a straight bus back to TP from Cingjing. However, the e-go bus departs abt 1 or 2pm.

Since you got 8 days in taiwan, you may want to spent another day in cingjing. Do the walk trail behind Energy resort. It's beautiful. And there's the English manor like a castle, you may want to go there and take some pixs and have a afternoon tea. Can see my 3D2N Cingjing itinerary.

Rgds,
Low

Revised itinenary (8 - 15 Oct)

Hey thanks for the reply.

Finally got time to plan this trip.

This is my revised itinerary since the SML minsu told me 10 Oct is their national day and will be pack with ppl hence would be better if I go on a normal day.

Do let me know if I can add in any other places as it seems quite short.

Day1
  • 12 pm reach Taoyuan airport and take bus to XMD hotel.
  • Danshui old street and lover's bridge
  • Miramar Ferris Wheel
  • Shilin nite market

Day 2
Book 1 day tour to yehliu, jiufen, etc

Day 3
  • Take HSR to Taichung and check in minsu near Fengjia nite market (any bus to travel to Fengjia area minsu?)
  • 心之芳庭
  • Fengjia nite market

Day 4
SML-九族文化村 and stay at minsu

Day 5
Cingjing farm and stay at minsu

Day 6
Take ego bus back to Taipei (reach Taipei, should be 6pm?)
Check in XMD hotel then go Shida nite market

Day 7
  • CKS Memorial hall
  • Taipei 101
  • Longshan temple
  • Wu Fen Pu

Day 8
Shop at XMD and late noon go airport.

Did I miss out any good stuffs? Dont think i have time to stay another nite at cingjing hence got to give up he hua shan unless I can make it for sunrise trip.

Not sure if I can add in lunch at Ding Tai Fung but anyone knows where is it and how to go there?

Thank you.

when i was there last nov, what my family did is to take a bus to the high speed station, from there take a High speed train direct to taichung.
