Yah, day 1 go Taichung straight and have dinner at fengjia nm.

Day 3 you have to leave Taichung very very early to complete the agenda. 7am by hsr.

0800 Leave Taichung for Taipei (HSR)
1100 Go to Zhong Zheng Ji Nian Tang(1hr need to spend there at least)
1200 Go DanShui Old Street (The metro takes time, kindly google)
1400 Go Fisherman' Wharf (spend 10 mins there and off you go? With your friends, at least be 1.5h before leaving.)
1500 Go Beitou Thermal Valley( Getting out of fisherman's wharf to danshui by bus, takes 20-30 mins. Do factor in the metro from Danshui to Beitou and walk to hell valley)
1800 Go shilin for makan( Last stop, so anytime also can do.)

I hope i gave you invaluable advise.
Good luck with your planning.

Hmm, okok. I need to double check. Now i need to ask if my friend can change his ticket for an earlier flight.

Yah, day 1 go Taichung straight and have dinner at fengjia nm.

Thanks. Coz i got 1 friend reaching at 6pm... So i am not sure is it worth it to go to taichung from airport directly..

Day one straight away go taichung liao.
Mai waste time go north then south.

There is no best. It all depends on what you want to do/see/eat. Taichung is big. If you are making Taichung as a base and doing day trips, it makes more sense to stay near the train station.

I will be staying there for 2 day just to visit SML and go to Aboriginal Theme Park. Other than that, we will just be walking around Fengjia Night Market. As such.

I am also gg to buy the 太阳 biscuit. So that's is mainly my itinerary for taichung. After that we will go back to taipei

I see the train station a place where we can get quick bus to sml and back to taipei. But the night market is 1 hour away from the nearest hotel at train station... I am really not sure what to do
