of cos,car rental is much more costly
for taroko,u can take cab,book cab or take the Tw tourism bus.
But going further like he huan shan...I would recommend book a cab. Cos the bus got timing n the timing is like an hr per bus. So u will have difficulty in ur tour
I see. Thanks.

Nice. Thankss for your reply. Got car license but no bike license even though I know how to ride.... Car rental seems costly though. Like comparable to book a driver one day.

Paiseh just clarify a bit, I meaning traveling to nature sites in hualien (taroke, etc.)and also definitely he huan shan (I see picture too awesome to not visit liao). So are there public bus service that goes there? If so are they recommended? If so I will research for it.

Thanks.
Rent car is OTOT.
Hehuanshan not all the time good weather so yes it is nice, but if with driver, sway u go up see nothing.
When u depart, the skies open up.
If self drive, u can stay and go as you like.
Taiwan hard to rent bike in certain places.
So even if you know HOW. No biggies.
I also know how and has a MID license, but then locals dun rent u due to insurance and scared u kena fine and they cannot claim off u, they will simply refuse by all means.
So ideally, drive if you can. Can stop anything , anywhere.

Hi guys, will need some advice and recommendations, thanks in advance!

Am thinking of traveling in end Feb for 5D4N trip to Taiwan. Main purpose is for trekking (solo backpacker), have been to eastern coast of Taiwan (Taipei to TaiTung) few years back due to biking trip. Admit haven't done much research on places to trek, but been briefly to taroko gorge previously.

Any advice? Such as duration too short or recommendations for lone traveler (like accommodations)
