found this tour at hualien train station
http://www.taiwantourbus.com.tw/engl...ail.php?uid=61

but the tour starts at 7am, how to reach there so early?

is there any difference between Taroko National Park and Taroko gorge? Which one better?
its the same

go for the half day tour instead...starts at 10am or 11am now.

Thanks alot~! Was thinking of this hotel or Rainbow hotel.
go for One Star Hotel. All three hotels in the same area. East Dragon and One Star are just beside each other while Rainbow is in the middle of Ximenting which I find that can be a bit too noisy for my liking when I want to rest early. About 10pm can still hear noise from the 'crowd' in the room.

I went to see the room at East Dragon. So so only but have internet access in their rooms. Not all rooms have internet access. There's internet access in all rooms in One Star. Good for people who bring their laptops.

i presume u will reach Taipei first on Sunday night. Spend Monday to Xin Bei Tou for hot spring then Dam Sui and Yu Ren Ma Tou. You can buy the Hualien tix for Tuesday then u wont worry that u cant get train tix for Hualien liao.

Post ur itenary here.
