Heng la going to als!!

No problem Bro...The counter info given also not accurate, Thursday asked, they checked and said sold out, Friday asked, they told sold out but got the 8.30am free seating, but only selling one day in advance, so came back today, they checked the system and told the 9am tickets are available...Fast hand fast leg bought immediately!!!

Maybe reserved some for local or walk in customer...

I didn't see in Bugis

I have some more questions. We are self driving when in Taichung and Cingjing.

Our itinerary looks something like this:

Taoyuan Airport --> HSR to Taichung HSR station --> Rent car --> Drive to Cingjing

For the drive to Cingjing, will there be mobile signals? We are relying on Google Maps. If the signals will be bad, got what other alternatives? Google offline maps can use? Or other offline maps recommended?

We don't mind physical maps. Any good source of physical and updated map? Taoyuan Airport or HSR station will have ma?
I was on chunghwa network, drive up to cingjing also got 4g. But just download google offline maps just in case. Remember to turn on your headlights when driving around the mountains even during the day.

Why still go take hsr to taichung?
Just start from airport will do good.
Save money too!
We are taking midnight flight there. So we plan to rest a while in HSR first, then slowly drive to Cingjing.

THE dangerous part is not driving up to cingjing.
It is to hehuanshan and to the East of it.

How much rest can you be taking on the hsr?
Tell me if youare oncoach. More comfortable and that is what i call a proper rest.

YOu just need to drive south towards taichung and look out for signboard towards Nantou, and you will be there in no time.
Rushing to cingjing is no good.
It is like advising you to dive immediately after flying into your destination.
Not worth the calculated risk.
Stay a night in taichung, and drive up the next day.
Always do not rush on your journey.
