Hopefully when I'm there next week, all fully bloomed.
I think you wear jacket with t shirt and short so be enough. Bring long pant in case weather change.
You go which part of tw?

I look for comfort hehe.
How's your beacon hotel? I stay in La Vida Hotel 2 mins to fengjia, I reviewed in tripadvisor if you are interested.
you look for comfort for the hotel or the HSR?

Beacon is great. imagine we go down at 11pm to buy food.

rmb to drink tiger brand black sugar bubble tea.

spent 1 night in alishan. you wont regret. try to reach around 12pm, eat then start walking. watch the sunset then eat and return to hotel. sleep early. internet is not bad on Far east tone. able to watch korean drama.

next day see sunrise, walk around. latest by 2pm take the ride to go down Chia yi then return no Taichung.

Chia yi is pretty quiet. If you are staying in chia yi can take 1 station to go night market.

actually i think the bus better. very comfortable.

hsr need to book early. if miss need to book another ride for full fare.

in the end i canceled the tickets and paid the admin fee.

not worth to take shuttle bus to the hsr from tra for 30 mins then 30 mins to taichung hsr then free shuttle bus another 30 mins. somemore im at the peak hour in the evening.

take bus back so much easier.

if talk about flexibility, hospitality and service, it is really good.

we volunteered to check out at 4.30am because we are heading for the sunrise and wont be back by 11am as we plan to panic there and walk around. the minsu said just leave the bags in the room in case we are back early still can bath or rest.

if we are not back at 11am, when they do the cleaning of the room will help us carry the bag out.

Bro calkel didn't book for you flexible ticket - mean you can take any time any train. All my tickets are flexible ticket, I don't have to rush.

Why so troublesome, hsr > tra > bus to fengjia (hsr to fengjia 200 ntd+ only)

chia yi tra > chia yi hsr > taichung hsr >bus to fengjia (not worth)

chia yi tra > bus to chao ma station >taxi to feng jia

this trip i never take those bus in the taichung city. just taxi everywhere, even buying the tai yang bing.
