If u can contact the locals to fix the tour to start at xincheng, you have an edge.
But most prefer to go back to 七星潭, then to city.
That is like the SOP for the tour there.
U can also ask the taxis at xincheng.
Bet they will be willing to do a tour for you there.
Taiwanese seldom says No though.
I think taxi at Hualien station do tour, just like Pingxi station

will leave zhuilu old trail for another time ... bus intervals are hourly so need to plan ahead. i think scooter gives better flexibility
Just take train from Taipei to hualien. Hualien take bus to taroko. The bus stops at a few stops along the gorge. Then back the same way. Why duwan stay at hualien one night ? Hostel <30sgd. Or climb taroko mountain 13 or 16km stay one night with the native tribe people on the hill

Taroko actually no need guide la... Just go climb climb.

Go the one that need apply permit one at the gorge. Awesome view
thanks! i think finally got it sort out. will do 2 trips, one just for taroko another for hualien/suao. 七星潭 easy access but for photography not ideal, i prefer somewhere on higher ground to view 七星潭

Hi

Most of the Taiwan instant noodles have liquid seasoning (oil/sauce). Has anyone tried bringing back these kind of instant noodle back using hand carry luggage?

Flying budget so don't have check-in allowance. I wonder whether the the liquid seasoning packets in the instant noodles violate the liquid restrictions.

Thanks

Good to eat under the aircon comfort.
Do remember to 分类, if you cannot.
If not, at least wash them before packing them up.
Lesser "aroma" in the room as well.

Hi, anyone have been to Chiayi, Tainan or Taitung?
I'm planning a year-end trip to Kaohsiung, I have 8days 7nights over there in Taiwan.

Thinking to stay to stay Tainan for at least 2 day to explore, but not sure for the other days. However, am planning countdown in Kaohsiung.

Would like suggestions.
Taitung can do two routes.
One mountain one towards the hotspring.
The other is along the sea route towards 三仙台。
