the weather was cloudy when i was at yms but it was damn crowded and many people had to walk down the mountain cause the last shuttle bus had already departed shifen waterfall looked ugly during heavy rain last sat and visibility was poor. my camera died and i had to quickly return to city to fix it.

It's at ping xi. U can take the train to reifang stop then cab or bus over or u can book a tour car about 3500nt for 12 to 8 hrs share with 4 pax it's pretty good deal

let me provide a brief review of the places i have visited

yangmingshan- nice place with good scenery and hiking trails but the frequency of bus 108 sucks. I will definitely return and spend more time in this place.

danshui fisherman's wharf and old street- boring place with dirty, grey old buildings. There is nothing much to do at fisherman's wharf besides looking at the white bridge and bali island. I will not visit this place again.

Yehliu- Average place but nice sea view. Those who have visited Pinnacles in W.Australia would find this place to be a bore.

Shifen waterfall-Shifen waterfall is beautiful but it was raining very heavily during my visit so I didn't really explore that area and also jiufen. Will visit again on a sunny day.

Maokong gondola-cheap and good. allows one to enjoy night view of taipei city.

Sun Yat sen memorial hall--Took a few pictures of taipei 101 from this place.

I think my visit to central taiwan few years back was much better than my recent visit to taipei cause taipei does not have beautiful scenery and the weather sucks. i miss cingjing farm and alishan and want to go back again
