Advise on Taiwan Trip next week with family

Hi Shi Fus

I am travelling with my preggy wife (4ish months) , 3 yo son and mom-in-law for 9d8n

Planning to do the followings:

Tao Yuan to Chia Yi - 1 night (HSR)

Chia Yi to Fengqihu to Alishan - 1 night

Alishan to Taicong - 2 night

Taicong to Cingjing - 1 night

Cingjing to Taroko (Hualian) - 1 night

Taroko to Taipei (?) - 2 nights

A couple of questions :

1.) I am planning to rent car from Taicong and self drive to Cingjing and Taroko and drop the car at Hua Lian, would it be difficult to self drive ? or would taking public transport is more recommended ?

2.) Would it be too rush, it seems like a lot of touch and go

3.) Any addition/improvements/advice is greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance

1) Cingjing to Hualien route, never self drive. This route got rock dropping on raining days and very often. This route only transport is hire driver.
2) Yes, you didn't add in the travelling time, especially Chia Yi to Fengqihu to Alishan and Alishan to Taicong - 2 night. I don't know what transport you intend to take, if bus, from Chiayi to Alishan alone take 2.5 hrs.

You plan to DIY or hire driver, DIY need more time in travelling.

Yes, i read what he has written, that's why i asked him whether he had proceeded with his trip as planned or he did smthg differently. I would like to explore what r the different ways or what r the different things that i can do between the period i touch down at taoyuan to the time i reach Alishan. As Alishan is the furtherest item on my itinerary.

I would like to see how i can arrange my itinerary so that i can minimise the discomfort of long journey travelling and at the same time fit in some of the items which my family would enjoy.
