to confirm again... to get to kee lung from taipei i must take train from Taipei main station rite ? wat is the train i take there ??
Go to the ticket counter at the Taipei main Station and get a ticket to Keelung. Follow the directions to the boarding gate for the trains.

or by bus:

Hi Cheng Du and Rainbow in the same group.
Chengdu is better as a hotel, Rainbow is ideally located.

Mandarin is very new,You can email them directly to get location as they have more than one location.

I have heard about both Happy Family and Taiwanmex.

I have not been there but Sounds like Wulai or Yangmingshan is what you are looking for:

http://www.gio.gov.tw/taiwan-website/gogo/goen_34.htm Wulai

http://www.gio.gov.tw/taiwan-website/gogo/goen_32.htm Yangmingshan

I am not a Hot Spring Type of Person.
