I came back from a free-and-easy tour in Taiwan.

These are the things i had missed, but shared for your benefits.

Buy muscle/joints/painkiller in SG. if you expects lots of walking (ie jiufen, flora expo)

Panadol Extend is not available in TW.
Panadol is 普拿疼 (not 班纳杜as in SG), they got Extra, but no Extend.

If I intend to skip Shifen, Bus 965 will be faster to reach Jiufen Old Street?
Skip shifen, take bus 965, different route.

Any suggestion for travelling between Kenting and Tainan City?
Need the exact train/hsr/bus/cab information. Preferably least transfer+cheap as we will be taking luggages. Though time won't be a big issue.

I understand that taking the train(自强号)and then transfer to 小港(紅線) can take me from Tainan City to KaoHsiung International Airport yup? Google shows it takes an hour, is that a good gauge?

Erm, I'm asking for specific... you are giving very vague answers.
Thanks but no thanks.

You can take taxi too, I take taxi from Taichung HSR to cingjing minus cost 2200 ntd. Or you can book driver for tour.
Cingjing minsu, some got provide transport to cingjing farm or others places.

KKday tour/transport review very bad, choose others.
I agree with Andrew. Didn't use them but based on what I read, u are better off on your own.
Tried kkday for past two days actually nothing bad about it.
