Nuttyazn,
Yes, I read thru the forum before setting up the itinerary. It's been very fruitful!
Do you know what time does 光華商場 open and is there any particular shop e.g. challenger I shld go to?

Jiajun & Nuttyazn,
How long is the bus journey to Ye Liu? Any other places I shld cover in that area?
From Jiufen, how do I travel back to Taipei? Can I take the train service?
let me try to answer your queries....

1) Dunno what time 光華商場 opens but my guess is the usual 11 am. BTW 光華商場 is located to a temporary site near the original site. Maybe Nuttyazn can provide more info on this.

2) The journey to Ye liu is about 50 min by bus from Taipei Main bus station. The only place worth visiting is the scenic area with all the natural rock formation. There is also a water world which I think you can skip. After Jiufen, my suggestion is to take a bus to Keelung. You can go visit Miao Kou Night Market in Keelung. From Keelung you can either take a bus or train back to Taipei.

LifeIsSuch Thanks for the help.

In this case, I am more towards spending more time @ Jiu Fen than Ye Liu in this case. So I shld take the train to Rui Fang which is abt 40 mins then change a bus (wat no? how much? how long is the journey) to Jiu Fen?

Guanghua:New location. MRT Stop Zhongxiao Xinsheng > Exit 4 > Turn right, walk to second junction , turn left , walk 2 mins to new location. The First Junction is the Bade Road Shops.

However I found that in the Blk 4 of the new location a shop selling MP3 lowest @ NTD1390, then NTD1790 for 1gb. Unlike other shops, this chap has prices shown in the counter.

there's a bus from jiufen to keelung, can go there straight to shop it'll pass by the ruifang train station, so u can drop there also. i really miss jiu fen and keelung, a really nice place.

Taiwan Food Celebration at the World Trade Center Keelung Rd Entrance:
Here are some photos of the stalls. The prices are very reasonable, so if you are here or coming down in the next 2 days , DTF and DLS are both offering discounts as well:
