Still confused on getting to Janfusan theme park in Taichung.

First alternative, High speed rail, 1 hour's journey, 700NT per ride.

Else, bus from Taipei, 2 - 3 hours.

Upon reaching Taichung, take the cab around? How far is Fengjie from the theme park. Also, how do I get back to Taipei at night?

Thanks.
