Wind is the ultimate killer.

haha agree.
Probably will bring along my super-thin rain jacket which can double up as a wind jacket.
Looking forward to not sweating whilst cycling.



By the way, I have a general question about itinerary.
Would it be possible to fit Jiufen (old street), Shifen (waterfall), sky lanterns (with dusk or nightfall as a backdrop), and Keelung Night Market into a single day's itinerary?

Travel will be via public transport preferably, or else next option is via car/van with driver if that speeds things up.

I was thinking Jiufen around late morning till lunch, then Shifen, then (I think) Pingxi (?) before heading to Keelung.

hi all.. need some advices on my itinerary..

Day 1 - Reach taoyuan airport and take HSR to taichung

Day 2 - Taichung to Cingjing minsu (any recommendations for driver?)

Day 3 - Cingjing minsu

Day 4 - Cingjing minsu to flying cow ranch(Miaoli) (any recommendations for driver?)

Day 5 - Flying cow ranch to taipei (any recommendations for driver?)

After day 5 onwards will be at taipei.. just wanna ask for recommendations for driver or just book a local taxi? And whats the market rate like?
call uber to qingjing minsu is around 4k, taxi is pretty expensive here.
