ur itinerary very pack.......feels like each location see look 30-45 mins and need to move on

u have to be sure that the people in ur group have good physicality and stamina
personal take, 黃金瀑布 can skip. its really not consider as waterfall IMHO, the taiwanese very good in twisting. if u really wan, u can replace that w 7-du manmade water fall(someone correct me if i am wrong)

hotsprings.... this trip i really do many homework! not many offer 4 ppl pte bath use. mostly is 2 pax per room. diff soup hv diff speciality. if u r staying at yilan, just check into a hotel in jiaosi w that facility. take out 1 -2 items in ur yilan trip. yes bath towards end of trip is very worthwhile

another personal take - NM is same everywhere. perhaps only 2 specialty food on each area(province). whatever food i see in fengjia, is same as what i see in zhongxiao, yizhong, shilin, taoyuan. only keelung slight different cos it is by the sea more "sea" items. which also means what i see in keelung will be thereabouts in yilan and luodong. this time huadong, again my missed out areas, partly i cannot get any tickets + lack of time ==> which also heng cos if i do have tickets, i will be in that fated langga train

earthquake was interesting....the building really SWAY n SWAY

i never wanna go HK leh. go there is merely visit friends. HK is chop chop eat n go. fierce is their day to day life, HK culture.

its lok kok la. there are high ses places at the same stretch. llst also cos thats the only stall that dun need to wait 20 mins for a seat
Same thing for me.
It's like an every 2 year ritual.
They ask me when come again, i say too congested.
Perhaps 3 years!

Thanks for the fast reply...

I haven been there for 10 years, totally no idea...
From where to where, how long we will be at each destination, how long is the journey and all. We will be booking car for these 6 days though, i dunno if it will be easier..
Can u recommend which are the items that can be taken out from each day?

So u will suggest we stay in a hotspring hotel at jiaosi?
Can skip Luodong NM?
Got any good hotels or minsu to recommend in Jiaosi?
we have 3 pax, sharing a room

go book for triple family room

i would advise to siam agoda if u can. very dodgy

if u hv driver, then book the one closer to the final destination of the day. cos u will be dead tired
OR, book one that is nearer to first destination in the morning, where u siam morning traffic (dependent what is ur set off time)
my group all early birds

ur trip can have 2 hotspring .... but this one have to ask ur driver plan, personally the smell of hotspring in taichung is more fragrant LOL sun-moon that side also hv a few good ones. this one u must ask calk to gaisiu u
i use to go lu-shan until 921 wreck the whole place. i prefer annie castle over paper box king.

cannot say which one "shud " take out. best is u google for image that shud tell u if thats ur place to go. the image will be lesser than what u see in real

NM, dun need to be fixed. if u are tired, then that day dun go, if u are not is can go.

fj MUST avoid weekend. if weekend, i shud say go yizhong.

my group have pensioners but my old ppl very hardy type, can walk 10km a day w heavy bag. cos my trip everything is F&E.

i use tripadvisors as backup review.

if it helps, i stay in diary hotel at taipei, kaifeng. i basically wash n dry my clothes there before leaving for airport LOL! so that go back sg dun need to do anything liao
they have other freebies too

陰陽海....i no comment...since i hv been spoilt by pink lake -- a natural phenomenal of high mineral in water
so 陰陽海 i only see "muddy" water again my personal take.
