Im going on 3 Oct and barely planned my trip or booked my hotel. Tentatively looking at the following:

Day1 : Arrive in Taipei
Take overnight coach to Kaohsiung
Day2 : Kaohsiung, stay 1 night
Day3 : Chiayi to take train to alishan
Day4 : Nantou?? (any other suggestions)
Day5 : Hualien
Day6 : Niufen/KeeLeung
Day7 : Yeliu
Day8-10 : Taipei

Am I over ambitious with the above travel plan ? ALso anyone can recommend a place to stay with nice scenery in Nantou or I should consider other place?

mayb Niufen/KeeLeung can combine under Day8-10 : Taipei
while u in Kaohsiung,can go down to hengchun see the 'chu huo' then take a walk at kenting night market

I got feedback that Kaohsiung is quite boring.. can easily cover in a day ? Also, I should be reaching KaoHsiung early morning, so should have enough time ? Travelling down to Kenting would need me to spend another day there?

Just checked, Lushan is in Nantou right. So thinking of spending a night at the hotspring hotels, Is it easy to travel to this location from Chiayi ?

HI Joan,
If you are going to Kaohsiungdirectly, then you might as well take the bus to Taichung, instead of coming up to Taipei. From outside the Taichung train Station, many buses going to Kaohsiung.If you come up to Taipei,you will have to do the same route passing Taoyuan again. You can check when there is a really late bus and then Hang around Taichung and have dinner there befor moving along.
