By right: NO.
If custom check, confiscate and lose it or fine 3000ntd.

2 nights in FCR is good. For the little one to enjoy the various activities there.

There is a famous museum at TC. Nice for little ones to go. But may be too young to understand.

hi folks,

travelling with wife and baby in Dec. For flying cow ranch, does it make sense to stay 2 weekdays nights? was thinking cow ranch for 2 days and then 3rd day on checkout head to strawberry farms at dahu area before heading down to Taichung..

Itinerary is briefly this:
D1: touch down 6pm at TPE, head to XMD and stay 1 night
D2: travel down to Flying Cow Ranch
D3: Flying Cow Ranch
D4: Check Out from Flying Cow Ranch > Strawberry Farm at Dahu area > Taichung check in (then do FJ night market)
D5: Taichung
D6: Taichung
D7: Check out from Taichung > Taipei
D8: Taipei
D9: Fly back from TPE to SGP 09.55am

For TC not sure what are the good itineraries to recommend for children <2yo? Please advise TIA.

Hi, I'm not an expert, just sharing as I'm also going in Dec, with my 3yrs old

D1 6pm land, about 8pm then can reach XMD. With <2yrs old, you can't do much plus next day still need to travel south. Recommend to stay in Taoyuan.

D2/D3 according to feedback by TW drivers, not worth to stay overstay, day tour good enough. Myself I originally plan overnight but change after taking into consideration various drivers comment.
