Thanks for all the replies. Probably will stick to the hsr way to tai chung. Not too confident my kid can tahan another 2 hrs ride after 4 hrs flight. Haha.

Yeah. With a kid, everything planned is subject to changes. I just came back from taipei 5 nights stay just to get a feel how my kid can cope. Now trying to venture out to other cities.

Taichung and Tainan are quite good.
Yilan can go by bus.
1 hour or so will get you to luodong.

Thanks! Will go see see.

Will be in Taiwan for 8 days. My plan is to stay at Taichung for most of the days (5D) and last 3 days at Taipei.

Is it feasible (cost wise & time) to get a driver for day tour in kaohsiung, tainan etc, and back to Taichung in the evening?

Or have to stay over at those places?

Thanks!

Are you running road?
Why must go back to taichung to stay every night?
Redundant right?
Besides, Tainan and KHH are in the south, nowhere near taichung within an hour ride.

I see. Because of the packing and unpacking of luggages etc. I was thinking to leave all the barang barang in Tai Chung hotel and then go for day tours.

In that case I will need another hotel in the south.

I understand why you don't want to change hotel so often but Taiwan is very big. Doing day trip to other places then come back to your hotel will be more tiring and rushing. If you havn't book your hotel yet, you can reconsider you plan.
Unless you plan to hire driver for the day trip then it's doable.

You can check out Sun moon lake and Cingjing, both beautiful and relaxing.

廟口夜市
羅東夜市
largest still in 台南
Fengjia too many commercial stuff, just personal thought.
Used to like Taiwan night market food but don't know why, they don't entice me anymore. Probably getting old and find that Hong Kong food is more suitable for me now.

Not only night market food, their normal breakfast stall - those sandwich, beef noodles, carrot cake, etc also not nice now. I like TW because I like to go to the country side, farms, mountains, rivers, etc and lots of flowers. Very calm and nice but HK still good for food.
