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.
Hot spring wise, twn ppl will say beitou all piped back to residential.
Wulai still okay.
Luodong, can go su-ao for cold spring.
Jiaoxi too.
But then jiaoxi one not shiok.
Latest i went was beipu cold spring.
Good.
But a good 6km one way.
Two siao kia walked about 1hr plus.
Fun indeed.

Calkel!
Pls give me some info on hotspring in taichung and SML
And oso your opinion on the itinerary
Hotspring i dun do there one.
Taichung only those typical ones.
Now got flora expo, search 花博2018.
SML, typical ones, tour ard lake and enjoy at 向山遊客中心。
All google and check.
SML quite boring unless u intend to cycle or etc.
Cruise and also 9族文化村.
Take cable car 9 times also can.

taipei, can go hangzhou xlb
worth value. better than DTF.

or spend 1 day, take guoguang bus to keelung-yeliu. actually ur paid trip that goes to shifen....shud consider shifen + yeliu.
if u are at jiufen, see see rook rook is ok, dun eat anything there. among my clique of friends including taiwanese who travel over last 3 years, none was spare of foodpoisoning in jiufen. but 9fen too much steps so i skip it in my itinerary for oldies

my whole trip, best food review was the foodcourt at taroko mall.... am quite surprise TBH

no leh, seems that he is travelling from taiching to huadong....guguan is one of the routes enroute to huadong.

apparently the duck wasnt what it used to be, now they sorta premade it in advance and make it look as it its is fresh and added some very unhealthy additive to it. friend of friend told me jinshan is better for goosemeat.

@whywhy80, march maybe is the final leg for jiangmuya (gingerduck) in taichung. they only open at night. jiangmuya is seasonal food, very tonic.
