Hi xiao,
Looks like our plans are pretty different, no matter. I plan to spend more time out of taipei in more scenic areas. only 2nd night I'll be in TS. after that is a whirlwind movement from hualien -> Jiufen -> taichung -> LuKang -> Alishan etc... I'm leaving 9th & 10th back towards the city, hv not decided where. Maybe may drop by Hsin-chu to visit some old frens & thus go nanliao to fly kites... very strong wind there, my wife nvr fly kites before...maybe she'll like it.

Joan, how about yourself?
I was thinking of that too.. cos first time day so wanna look around Taipei first and i am bringing 2 aunties.. hahaha...

Next round will go trekking with friends already... at Yushan and definitely go out of Taipei....

Oic, i booked 2nd & 3rd Sept, 1.5 days for me.. going back to Taipei in the afternoon on 3rd. Maybe can see you on the 3rd when u come in the morning.. if evening time, would have miss each other... For the room, weekend is NT$1,500 and weekday is NT$1,000. Anyway, i booked NT$2000 for a big room cos 4 persons staying together...

Tour NT$2,000 per day is what she quote me as well.. (for 4 persons unless i heard wrongly)...
I shd be taking the 9:30am taipei train which is non-stop to Hualien arriving 11:48am. We're only 2 person. Did u intend to go rafting? Any details wht u'll be doing in Hualien? I'm leaving everything up to her.

I will be going to taroko, all other scenery areas and the night markets.. no rafting cos aunties dunno how to raft.. i would love to raft but cannot... maybe next time..

Since reaching around noon will definitely go tour then go Ms Lius Minsu to check in only late afternoon.. by then we are on the train back Taipei.. cos going Wufenpu that evening... i don't think can meet....

Correct, so it is best to call them and book when you arrive here. Or Take the Bus up to Alishan Mountain and the Train Down.

The online booking process is a bit complicated for me,so if anyone has successfully done it, please post directions.
