Taipei main station : Bus stop outside East Exit 3 to YMS. Bus No. 260. If you are in a Ximenting Hotel, You can also take the Bus 260 from across Zhonhhua W Rd Near Ximen MRT Station Bus Stop

leaving for taiwan tmr!! guys, i heard there's a mayor electorate this sat?? wud it affect the traffic??
Not really. Things are quite normal during these elections. People go and vote throughout the day and then go home to see results if they are seriously into this election.

Remember, it is cool at nights if you are not used to it, so a denim jacket or a windbreak with lining should be fine.

The trains are taken from Taipei Railway Station (juz like trains to Hualien) rite?
Also, do I ve to book for the tickets like I will do for Hualien?
Transferring from Taipei ->Rueifang to Rueifang->Shifen need to head for another location or simply cross over to another platform within the same station?

paisei paisei...

Tks.

Sorry, no bus to Shifen. Yuo have to go by train from Rueifang Station.
Taking the trains same as with Hualien i.e. TMS to Rueifang. In Rueifang, you have to buy the separate ticket for Shihfen on the Pingshi Line.

My timetable just shows the details for the morning traveller. There more trains later but times are infrequent.

Actually in End March, it will be sales of discounted Winter wear and the beginning of Spring.May should Spring sales and beginning of Summer in June. The last sales for Summer clothes was in October.This is the time you find the short sleeve stuff and shorts on sale.
However that does not mean you dont have summer clothes on sale during June ~ Oct Lots of offers during this period as well.

the bus route is something like this Rueifang -> Jiufen -> Jinguashi.
So the reverse is also true, Jingguashi -> Jiufen -> Rueifang
