You Monday land or land earlier?
Taichung to Alishan is like this, Taichung to Chaiyi to Alishan. Can stay Chaiyi instead.
Wed can go cingjing but a bit rush end up all not enough time to really explore alishan and cingjing.
Thus i ask him issit run road?
If yes, go straight to Chiayi than alishan then Taichung more smoother.
Alishan if not in March, then i dun go.
Later go liao nothing to see.

my China Airlines $278 return flight :
first time take CI, wah seat spacious wor, and further more the 2pm flight was quite empty, jin song nobody squeezed beside me, and next column also empty. stewardess quite pretty too!

but the flight was delayed half an hour... food not v nice,
and now its super long queue at the custom!
is it common for this timing?
they clear so slow... HK so much faster.
im in queue for 40min liao... Zzzz

Precisely why ppl ask me whether can make it in time for trains to hualien and where else, i need to ask more into details before advising tickets!

Kaohsiung airport looks worse. I had a shock when I was there in June.

Hi Andrew, Calkel,

My itinerary is as follow:

Friday - Taoyuan Airport -> Taichung
Saturday - Taichung
Sunday - Alisan
Monday - Alisan -> Chaiyi hsr -> Kaohsiung
Tuesday to Thursday - taipei

Iíve been to CJ before Liao so donít plan to go again this trip.
Actually Iím also thinking if I should swap Sunday and Monday to Hualien instead of Alisan. Hualien will be via HSR and TRA.

Would you know 包车 to alisan from Taichung would be around how much?

Appreciate your advice thanks!
