It looks great however I would do Jinguashi first then Jioufen as Jinguashi is the last stopm, then you can work your way back to Jioufen and Keelung/Miaokow
iso9003:
If you can get to Sengkang (Tofu St) earlier and leave earlier it would be better. I was told that the shops start closing about 8pm at Jioufen(Can someone confirm that??) When you are in Maokung you can ask someone there on the fastest way to get to Sengkang , they might have a better route for you.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion.
So am i right to say that i should take a bus from Ruifang to Jinguashi first. Then from Jinguashi, what bus shd i take to Jiufen?


Also, if my flight back to Sg is 630pm (a Thursday), so what time shd i leave for the airport, considering the evening traffic conditions?

Muzha, Maokong
Muzha Tourist Tea Plantations
Taiwan's first tea-tasting centers, located right next to the actual
plantations, let visitors sample delectable local teas. Taipei Tea
Promotion Center for Tieguanyin and Baozhong Introduction to tea-
picking, tea-processing, tea-brewing and tea-tasting.
Address: 8-2, Lane 40, Zhinan Rd., Sec. 3, Taipei
Tel: (02) 2939-1473
Transportation:
TRTS: Take the Muzha Line and get off at Wanfang Community station;
transfer to minibus no. 10, which brings you uphill to the tea
plantations.
CC Posted Muzha is dotted with teahouses serving yummy dishes such as noodles
in tea oil and chicken in tea leaves. As usual, I add this reminder
for Muzha: Couples would probably want to avoid Chinan (Zhinan)
Temple, as it's believed that a visit there will doom the
relationship. So don't be saying, "Hey, let's check out that
interesting temple up on that hill....!"
ShenKeng - Tofu Street - the tofu here is handmade and free of
plaster powder, which is why Shenkeng is well-known for its tofu.
MRT/ at Mucha Station : the bus to Shen-Keng are No. 660 of Chih Nan
Bus Co., No. 666 of Hsin-Hsin Bus Co., and No. 15 of Taipei Bus Co.
twinkle123 posted this in April: Went to ˇ§Shen1 Keng1 Jie1ˇ¨ for
lunchˇK quite a nice old street and they sell very smooth ToufuˇK we
took the opportunity to try the Ma-La- Tou-fuˇK.Good!
Great Tofu Dishes at Shen Keng

The same Keelung Bus. Jinguashi is the last stop up the mountain. The bus turns around there and comes back down the mountain to Jioufen

A 3pm bus should be fine to get to the Airport in time. It is now formally called Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport

The quickest way would still be by Bus 230 to Beitou from YMS and switch to MRT to Danshui.

Has anyone ever stayed at Nei Jiang Hotel? I am rather confused with the price

Got this from another forum (posted 4,5 months ago)
Neijiang Hotel, Ximending
http://www.neijiang-hotel.com
108 台北市萬華區西寧南路112號
Tel:02-2381-2147、2381-2148
Fax:02-2331-6340
112 Xining S. Rd.
Mon.~Thu. - TWD1280, TWD1380, TWD1480
Fri.~Sun. - TWD1480, TWD1580, TWD1680
Peegs' tip: The rate start from 1180 for weekdays and 200 more for weekends. NT1180 does not come with fridge whereas NT1280 does.
The official website states that it provide breakfast but no room rates provided.

Did a search and found this website which has the price list (updated a year ago)
http://taipei.mmmtravel.com.tw/index...=taipei_wanhua
Slight difference, after factoring the discount for those with 國民旅遊卡者

What is 國民旅遊卡者? Could someone enlighten me please? Is it only meant for Taiwanese? Does that mean foreigners has to pay the full price?
