have yet to figure out

which brings me to my next question, how people get around there ah?
Taiwan 好行 lor.
If not cab or local bus.
Local bus timing really sux. You can wait 1-1.5hr for a bus. So ur itinerary is doable if u plan around the bus timing but u need to stick strictly to the timing. If not hong gan if u miss the bus.

I stayed here http://dynasty.okgo.tw/. Walk to 永樂市場 every morn for breakfast.

Bus schedules are rather timely.
Those long breaks are more for meal timing.
Usually not very packed.

Cz falling debris has no eye.
So just a small item can damage the front windscreen.
So maybe got to move fast if from songxue lodge to taroko gorge entrance.

thanks & noted ... how about going down?
since auto can't use low gear for engine breaking, how to prevent brakes from overheating? can't share tips?

So many scooters can do.
But do remember to pump enough.

Very important msg.
This prevents overheating the brake pads.
