Hi...

Anyone here knows how to do get to yeliu (the rock formation park)?
Can i take the taiwan mrt thr? If possible which station should i alight?
Thanks in advance
The MRT nor the train goes to Yeliou.Some comments on the Day trip up North.
Take the Bus from The GouGuang Bus North Station which is now known as Taipei Intercity Bus Terminus.

I did the route I recommend to all of you and found that doing just
Yeliou,Jinguashi Jioufen and Keelung is nice and not too tiring.
The Buses are all new and Clean with good Airconditioning. Fare is NTD92/- The
Drivers call out all the Major stops. There are toilets everywhere including
one in Yeliou across from the New Temple being built when walking towards the Yeliou Scenic Area (No Soap or TP here). Yeliou Entry cost : NTD50 and NTD25 (Adult/Kids)
The Bus to Keelung is in front of the Convenience store across from where you
get off at Yeliou.
In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to board bus to
Jinguashi if coming from Yeliou:

Since My Sis loves Scenery we spent a lot of time in each place and we saw
Tour buses come and go quickly Jinguashi also needs a lot of walking especially if you hit the trails.Lovely scenes and very rustic, Entry NTD100/- (Cheaper for kids -Was not paying attention)
Forumers tip on getting off at 7/11 and walking down the steps is great too in
Jioufen (No energy to walk up-did I mention something about getting old!!)
However do this last before your return trip otherwise once down following
the road out is residential area and leads to a large temple.
There is a bus stop outside for buses that heads to Rueifang ,Keelung or
Taipei.
Good to eat here first then walk it off before heading to Keelung Miaokow
where you will also find lots of lovely local food as well.
In Keelung,getting to Miaokow: Getting off the bus walk back passed the Sea
(Keelung River??)all the way to the otherside to the Macdonalds.
Passing the shops in that street Miaokow is on your left at the First
Junction.Not difficult to find.
From Keelung Station you just cross the Street and walk along the Sea .......
