hualien and yilan all have. i think taidong should have as well.

you search in chinese as shang3 jing1 and you should be able to find a few, e.g. at hualien port.

Shilin night market.

day1 looks ok as it should be the same as mine but since mine is a monday, i will go for guessx3 recording if i'm able to make it else i'll go shilin

Day 2(Thur)

0800
Yeliu
1230

1330
Reached Jiufen
1700
leave for Miao Kou Night Market at Keelung.
1800
Reached the Night Market
2000
Leave for Taipei
2200
Shilin for supper

u set off for yeliu at 0800hrs? so will reach abt 0900+ and i dun think u'll need too long to see rock formation. so u might have some free time if u dun wan stay in jiufen for too long. can take bus go up to jinguashi too~

after eating in miaokou liao still got appetite to eat in shilin mah? i think go shilin do the shopping more feasible (use day1 to eat, day2 to shop at shilin)


Day 3 ( Fri)

0900
Leave for breakfast at Ding tai Feng.
1100
Leave for C.K.S Memorial Hall
1300
Shopping at sin guang shan yue
1500
Leave for hot spring at xinbeitong
1800
Leave for Danshui
2100
Dinner and Ktv at Ximenting

actually i think u go hualian on fri better cos sat very happening in taipei. ximending might even have free concert to watch

Day 4(Sat)
0700
Hualian
2100
Back to taipei
2200
Supper at shilin

as mentioned go on fri better. less crowd. supper in shilin again? maybe should try another nite market?

Day 5 (Sun)
Lungshan Temple + Taipei 101 + New York New York + Warner + Wufenpu + Raohe

eh... taipei101 and sin guang shan yue is same area mah so i thou u might wan to put them together instead of going sin guang shan yue on fri as planned. since this is ur last nite in taipei, i suggest u go try their ktv or clubbing. dun waste the nite


Day 6 (Mon)
Check out at 12pm ( Is it possible for me to leave my luggauge at the hotel when I check out at 12? cos my flight at 5pm. Wish to shop around xi mengting before I leave for airport)

monday seems to be rather standard but i think somewhere in ur plan, maybe u should squeeze some time to visit bookstreet?

Thanks for your advice

Didn't know much about jinguashi. Is it a special place?
Didn't plan hualian on a friday becos thought that after one day of Yeliu, jiufen and keelung, it would be quite siong to go hualian the next day. But might change the day like wat u say, it's more happening on sat at taipei. Almost forgot about bookstreet. Will squeeze it in on sun. Btw, bookstreet is where Eslite bookstore is rite?

i remember reading somewhere in this thread that there's a street selling books near mei shiuan hotel. eslite should be good too ba
