Dont think Nantou-Hualien is accessible by public transport. It's only linked by roads thru the mountain.

I initially wanted to do a Nantou to Hualien but abandon the plan as I couldn't find any direct way of travelling, only one was by Train, and it goes from Taichung-Taipei-Hualien.
hi thanks, will spend 1 day in hualien than. leave nantou till next year

I stayed in kindness hotel in KaoHsiung, was 1400NT . At alishan, I stayed at YingShan Hotel, it was 1800NT (doesnt include 150NT/pax entrance fee into the Alishan Recreational Area). I took the bus up to Alishan, it is 200NT. The train is 930am / 130pm up into Alishan. You have to be early there to buy if you are going during more crowded season.
tks 4 t infor

Thanks Emergency! =)

Finally started to plan my itinerary, leaving nxt Monday and I've yet to receive my maps, brochure etc..sighs..

Some questions..

1. 24hr Eslite bookstore at Dun Hua South Road. Is this near Zhong Xiao Dun Hua? Planning to go down to both Dun Hua East and South Road.

2. What time does the 'Kuan Hua' Computer place open for business?

3. 'Tien Xiang Hui Wei' (Manchurian style Hotpot) and 'Xi Duo Wu' Buffet..Anyone knows where this is?

4. http://www.taiwan-vigor.com.tw/ How do I get here for the Taiyang bing? Sorry, I can't make out the directions stated in Chinese.

5. Lastly for now, =x Issit possible to exchange 2000SGD all in one go at the money-changer? Gotta start looking for one with good rates soon. Btw, heard that the exchange rate is quite good at CKS airport.

receive maps and brochures? did u request from the Taiwan tourism board? tried filling in the contact us form but clicking send always gave me a broken link. can't find the email on their website also. Can I have the email address? thx
