I have planed up a day trip to yehliu, jiu fen etc. with the help from fellow podders but have added in some other places to visit. Would really appreciate any comments about the route I have planned!!

And also can someone advise whether that is too many places to visit in one day??

and lastly, do I need to book the train tix in advanced? or I can get it on the stop on that day?

Sorry for asking so many qns!! thanks thanks
