not really, some of us prefer not to do too detail plans for F&E and tht's where some enjoyment is. For eg. i toured USA west coast for 18 days. i almost didnt plan other than the car rental & air tickets. Everything was done there. so its a real FREE & EASY...haha. enjoyed the trip throughly.

of coz, for taiwan, need to plan a bit more coz things like hotels, tickets etc need to be well co-ordinated. But if need to plan to nitty gritty details, then i rather take tour package.
yup. i agree there are many ways to enjoy. i m referring to those with lotsa plans but obviously not enuf time.

need so long meh? actually plan until so detail oso might nt come out true... so many factors have to rely on... such as weather, physical conditioning, timings... if u like a place, u wun wanna leave just to stick to ur plan rite? =) think most impt is enjoy ourselves and nt rush so much...

hehe, already decided to skip a few of the places i wanna visit so as to really enjoy my trip in a leisurely manner... =P

u nid to know a bit of the background of all the places u go to since there is no tour guide. can't possibly go somewhere cos ppl say it's famous but u dunno why it's famous rite? and transport planning is also very important, i think. unless u r rich to get a cab to all the destination.

1) accom wise. frankly i dun feel worth to pay for premium in taiwan. their premium is only like our 4-5stars. not like our 6 stars. unless u're talking about taipei top top top premium. there's a special hotel tht looks like a palace in taipei, slipped my mind its name. can stay 1 nite to experience it. Very old history. i think shd be about NT$3,000 per nite. otherwise, stay city inn or tshotel as recommended by forumers here.

2) 1stly, let me say i'm more of a scenic traveller and almost zero on shopping time.
from your places of visit, my opinion is that yu ren ma tou (nothin special, just visit our bridge from kallang river to indoor stadium is similar..haha). we fen pu is pure shopping. u can skip raohe, nothin there unless u wanna watch pple skin snake and play with king cobra. 101 & nyny beside each other. but dun hv high hopes on their fashion there.

recommend to add-in jiufen & yeliu. these 2 places give u some diversity in your itenary.
