2 nights, but i went few times already. probably you can consider 2 to 3 nights if going fo guang shan as it will take 3/4 days.
I'm planning to go probably end December and might stay on to countdown. 5 days should be enough ? The 佛光山 is always on my list . Let's say if I want to go Kenting, I think allow 7 days best?

Levis jeans also not cheap
columbia must wait for sales
TNF too exp
mont bell find their material abit too rough
patagonia can only order online so can't feel the material

recently bought M&S Bermudas during sales very light & quick dry + lots of useful pockets

since i travel budget + carry on luggage. been constantly looking for ways to reduce weight
I do agree with you.
Have good fabric is impt.
If you travel often and do not think you need them, dun need to buy.
I do go ard in my royal robbins. They serve me well.
Columbia is too ex.
Of course if you can afford mont bell, TNF, patagonia, why not?

Really ? For Taiwan?

Even atop Alishan at sunrise, just heattech inner and a simple windbreaker or jacket will suffice.
That's my perception anyway.

Depend on when you go. I went in early march, just heattech inner and a simple windbreaker or jacket is not enough. it's 5 degree at alishan waiting for sunrise, worst cant see sunrise that day due to heavy fogging.

Layer enough. Heat tech, shirt/long sleeve plus a jacket.
Not hiking, no need so solid ones.
My north face starts to peel after hiking bromo and ijen.
Things do not last forever.
