wow~ imo i think u spend too much time in yurenmatou. u dun have to go so early but if u did, dun wait till the bridge light up. est tour time in yurenmatou should not be more than 1.5hrs. danshui lao jie quite worth more time exploring. i was watching shi zhi lu kou recently and they were filming at 淡江大学。over there got a street selling lotta food and alot university students work there. looks gd~ maybe nuttyazn knows abt the street?

Guessx3 Recording

OR (copied from someine's itinery :p)

0900 - Leave for Yeliu via a KuoKwang Bus heading to JinShan in the Taipei North STN.
Go out by exit 1 at Taipei Main STN. Bus tix around 80NT.
1100 - Reached Yeliu -
1300 - Leave for Jiufen via Keelung - No direct bus so have to go Keelung 1st. Take a
Keelung Bus heading to Keelung Train STN 1st. The bus stop can be found
opposite the bus stop u alight at Yeliu.After reaching Keelung Train STN, ask around
for the bus stop which heads for Jiufen. It is very near the Train STN.
1430 - Reached Jiufen
1630 - Walked finish Jiufen and leave for Miao Kou Night Market at Keelung.
The night market is very near the Keelung Train STN.
1800 - Reached the Night Market
2000 - Leave for Taipei via a Kuokwang Bus at Keelung Train STN.

both option1 and option2 are gd~ but since ur tour is a short 1, i suggest u go for option2. it will be more meaningful. night time go huaxijie / longshan temple after reaching taipei or ktv

Day 5 (Tue): Depart Taipei 6.25pm

0830 – Breakfast
0930 – Longshan Temple

skip longshan if u went earlier as i suggested
