Can I go to Alishan straight from the CKS airport? Ie to take a bus to the Taipei railway station and then proceed to take a train to hualian and change to a train route that take me up to Alishan directly. And for the accomdation there, can I easily find a hotel to stay overnight? Thanks.
I think it depends on what time u reach Taipei. btw, the train to Alishan is at Jiayi.

i dun think there's overnite flight to taipei. but just let u know the approx travel time (not including waiting time)

CKS -> Taipei (1.5h by coach/bus)
Taipei -> Chiayi (3.5+ hrs by train)
Chiayi -> Alishan (2hrs by coach/bus, 3hrs by train)

So i put it at about 8hrs travelling time.

Alternatively, u can try

CKS -> Taichung (? hrs, est. 2.5hrs)
Taichung -> chiayi (~2hrs by train)
Chiayi -> Alishan (2hrs by coach/bus, 3hrs by train)

Also, note that for chiayi -> alishan, 1:30pm is latest train to alishan. bus i think is 4pm latest.

Hi all
got question again
the rail service from Taipei to Hualien
there seem to be only 1 or 2 trips per day and they all start at roughly the same time - 8am or 9
will it be extremely crowded and hard to get tickets if I get there at say 7.30am?
I went thru the online booking site and it is quite confusing

hi, u can take the railway train from taipei main station or songshang station to ruifang station... then take a bus just outside the station.. u have to cross the road. that will be the direction. bus number to take i forgotten.. but u can refer to the bustop signage .. confirm got indicate.

train from taipei main station to ruifang station, return tix cos not more than 400NT

for info.. u do not take mrt to jiufen.. cannot be reached... only to taipei or songshan train stations

Came across a map that showed a street for wholesale clothes between Longshan Temple MRT station and Wanhua train station. May I know what's the diff between this area and Wufenpu?
