maybe u can skip ye liu coz its really a waste of time believe me i went there 8 days ago. nothing much to see not worth the hassle to get there at all..
maybe u will like to go yang ming shan den followed by bei tou and dan shui.. might be rushy though.
ur 18/12 hmmm is really nt very possible to go so many places in a day at all.
if u are gg to bei tou den i suppose u can skip wu lai ba.. either one coz its both wen quan area.

your 1st few days is relaxed. but 18/12 & 19/12 is impossible to achieve reasonably.

unless u nvr had hotspring experience, otherwise can skip both wulai & beitou. taiwanese hotspring nothin' special.

I like the cold sea breeze in Yeliu, it's the north tip of Taiwan island.

yang ming shan dunno shud go or not... cos maybe abit wet so nt sure if its dangerous...
