Has anyone done a day trip to Sun Moon Lake from Taipei? Is it possible? Getting up very early, catch the first train to Taichung, then spend the day at Sun Moon Lake and then return in the night to taipei.

From Taichung train station, how long does it take to reach Sun Moon Lake? Is there a direct bus or should I take a cab? How should one get around the lake itself? Are the scenic spots of Sun Moon Lake spread over a big area, so must keep taking buses or taxis or you can walk from one spot to another?

Hi all!!! Returned from TW few days ago, weather was avg 24C, very cold imo. There's no need to switch on the airconditioner during sleep.

Skipped lotsa places there as I only recovered frm a fever on the 3rd day..=(

Stayed in Rainbow Hotel, as we usually leave the hotel earliest at noon, we get to spend some time at XMD. Most of the time, we travelled ard via cab.

I simply love the 7-11 oulets with their variety of drinks and cup noodles ..my supper everynight..

Hmm..Went down to Shilin 3 times for dinner and shopping. Realise there're lotsa Nike shops there, wonder if they are authentic. Went Jiufen to get the taiyang bing and feng li su, it's really nice up there..Journey from taipei kinda long though. Miaokou's food is yummylicious~!

We lost our way countless time while trying to take the train and bus...like from Shinkong Mitsu we took bus no. 266 which is supposed to reach Beitou but after an hr's ride, the driver said we're to get off and wait for another no.266. weird..eventually we took a cab down to Yu Ren Ma Tou and we're just in time for the sunset! Sooo pretty!

Didn't buy much clothes there, instead spent all on food, skincare, and games like the 'toy-picking' and 'egg-turning' machine..really addictive..hehe

Lastly, I should have spent time brushing up my Chinese language before the trip. Many a times even the directions given by passbys or instructions on certain pdts got me confused.. =\ *frustrating*
it ok,their roads sometimes can get u to holland wan
and their chinese is the trad one,sgians dun really can understand unless ur chinese is quite good
got 1 X,a taxi driver also say my chinese is above ave only
so u enjoyed ur trip,
next X go there try not to take bus,their bus route veri diff from us
should take mrt,since u r i taipei,more easy

is the yilan county worth spending a day overnight?
my plan was to travel over to yilan in a morning and spend the night there
next day morning catch a bus or rail over to hualien so that I will be in time for the day tour
because I checked the rail schedule and there isn't any evening or night trains so taking the morning rail from taipei straight to hualien will only leave me with 1/2 a day
will it be better if i travel to yilan the day before and then go over to hualien?

Hi, need some expert advise. What is the best way to go from CKS Airport to Wan Tai hotel? Is there a direct bus to somewhere near? Or should i take the Kuo Kuang bus to Taipei Main station then take taxi from there to hotel? Thanks : )

HI,
Take Airbus East (NTD140) To Taipei City Hall MRT then a Cab (NT100- max) to WanTai. If cabbie does not Know, just tell him Wufenpu main Entrance.

Hi nuttyazn,
thank you for your advice : ) Just one more questions... is there any major difference between the different buses at the airport, i.e Kuo Kwang, Airbus East..etc. Any bus can reach Taipei Main station faster? ... hee thanks.
