taichung itself nothin' much tht's fresh & unique in taichung. my commonly expressed opinion is that taipei contains wht all the other cities have in terms of entertainment / food / shopping and so on. really dun see any benefits of visiting other cities. the only thing tht taipei seems to lack in terms of quality & quantity is binglan xishi. :p

Guys, do u all mind looking at my itinerary and comment on it? Especially the directions are correct or not. First time going taiwan , first time going on tour free and easy. A little excited but nervous. Much would be appreciated.


Day 1 : CKS airport > Royal castle hotel > XMD area

Directions: Take Freego bus from airport and drop at the door step of royal castle.

Day 2: East of XMD
Wufen pu >101 taipei area >Rao He night market

Question: Do u guys think its good to add in jiufen on this day? Jiufen is like a heritage tour or something eh?

Directions: Take Mrt to Houshanpi station to get to Wufenpu. And walk around the area to get to places we wanna go. Maybe can also visit Jacky Wu’s Dessert store at Zhongxiao Dun Huang Station.

Day 3: North of XMD

YMS >Beitou> Danshui

Question: Beitou besides hot spring got anything else? Coz we are not really into hot springs. Let say I leave out beitou, any where else up north to recommend?

Directions: Take bus 260 along Zhong Xiao W road which will take us to the YMS ‘tourist centre’. Internal loop bus of 108 will go around several YMS spots

Bus 230 will take us from YMS to Beitou. From Beitou, take the mrt to Danshui and from there red bus 26/23 to Yu Ren Ma Tou. Return trip with the same buses.

Day 4: South of XMD
Wu lai falls > Taiwan university > Shi da night market

Directions: Take MRT to Xindian and take bus Xindian Ke Yun to WuLai. From Xindian station back to Gu ting Station to get to their university and the night market which is kinda like a budget market cater to students.

Question: Which bus stop to stop when taking the Xindian Ke Yun ah? All the way to the main terminal ah? Im interested in the Waterfall and natural sceneries there but once again not the hot springs.

Day 5: North of XMD again
Long Shan Temple > Miramar Entertainment Park > Shi lin night market

Directions: Take Mrt To JianTan station and from there take a free feeder bus to Miramar Entertainment Park. I assume feeder bus will take us back to Jiantan which is right at the door step of Shi lin.

Day 6: Bye bye Taiwan~

Thanks alot guys.

The arrival of the first cold air mass from China is expected to engulf the island from Friday until Monday, plunging northern and central temperatures as low as 10 degrees Celsius and 11 degrees Celsius in the south. (Note it is a lot cooler in places up in the mountains and in places like Danshui-Single digit temp)
The coldest days will be Saturday 16th Dec and Sunday 17th Dec . Northern and northeastern regions will experience cold weather throughout the day, as temperatures are not expected to go above 16 degrees Celsius.
Central and southern regions will experience temperature differences ranging from about 11 degrees Celsius in the morning and evening time, and up to 20 degrees Celsius during the day.
