Btw recently any new spots in Taipei can spend half a day to a day? Already been to XMD,忠孝東路,101,TMS. Didn't go 士林夜市before, but heard too commercial so may want to skip again.

Day 1, you do not have enough time for 薰衣草森林>勝興車站>龍勝斷橋>中社花市>高美濕地>. 薰衣草森林 march is not the season for lavender, I went there in march 90% dead.
Day 3 also not enough time.

I think you can look at the map, from point A to B need how much time, how much time to spend before moving to C.
Thanks for the advice...
In that case, i may just skip lavendar farm
This itinerary is given by the driver de lor..
will go day by day and check on google traveling time and so...
Dun wanna be too rush oso as i have 2 aunties with me...

Driver also never state the number of hours leh, only the price for the day
Do i need to check with him?

acquatics addiction not bad...my partner loves going there for the food...but the food can be costly if you over indulge...can see live seafood swimming around also...can spend 2-3 hours walking around see see and makan...they sell lots of stuff in the supermarket section or you can eat at one of those premium sushi bars prepared by the chefs there if you are feeling rich...quite a good experience la...cab fare around 150nt from taipei main station

Orange hotel, cheap but room very small, breakfast only toast.
Via Hotel, slightly higher price, room bigger, no breakfast but got free foodie.
