Frankly, many Taiwanese go to Temples, even the young people especially during festivals and before Examinations. Hsientian Temple is crowded everyday, so is the Tzuyu Temple at the end of the Raohe St NM. Lungshan Temple is as usual always crowded.

Not too late at all: She has an Itinerary that covers most Tourist sites and then some.

Morning, slack around i guess, any other place to fit in here?
Sunday from 1pm onwards, Ximenting is a happpening pace where all the stars come out for free show etc
Day 7, Monday 1st Jan
The flight back is at 1800, therefore what will be a good time to leave for the airport??
This New Year everything is open(After 10.30am) The Bus pickup by Freego is about 14.50.

Sorry huh kinda blur... the train you mean is the mrt or railway huh?

Saw from a website they state take jieyun (taipei metro) to danshui station.
Outside the danshui station take the "danshui to keelung" bus.
Alight at yeliu stop.

Is this another alternative coz i really have no idea.

The MRT nor the train goes to Yeliou.Some comments on the Day trip up North.
Take the Bus from The GouGuang Bus North Station which is now known as Taipei Intercity Bus Terminus.

I did the route I recommend to all of you and found that doing just
Yeliou,Jinguashi Jioufen and Keelung is nice and not too tiring.
The Buses are all new and Clean with good Airconditioning. Fare is NTD92/- The
Drivers call out all the Major stops. There are toilets everywhere including
one in Yeliou across from the New Temple being built when walking towards the Yeliou Scenic Area (No Soap or TP here). Yeliou Entry cost : NTD50 and NTD25 (Adult/Kids)
The Bus to Keelung is in front of the Convenience store across from where you
get off at Yeliou.
In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to board bus to
Jinguashi if coming from Yeliou:
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97...dJinguashi.jpg
Since My Sis loves Scenery we spent a lot of time in each place and we saw
Tour buses come and go quickly Jinguashi also needs a lot of walking especially if you hit the trails.Lovely scenes and very rustic, Entry NTD100/- (Cheaper for kids -Was not paying attention)
Forumers tip on getting off at 7/11 and walking down the steps is great too in
Jioufen (No energy to walk up-did I mention something about getting old!!)
However do this last before your return trip otherwise once down following
the road out is residential area and leads to a large temple.
There is a bus stop outside for buses that heads to Rueifang ,Keelung or
Taipei.
Good to eat here first then walk it off before heading to Keelung Miaokow
where you will also find lots of lovely local food as well.
In Keelung,getting to Miaokow: Getting off the bus walk back passed the Sea
(Keelung River??)all the way to the otherside to the Macdonalds.
Passing the shops in that street Miaokow is on your left at the First
Junction.Not difficult to find.
From Keelung Station you just cross the Street and walk along the Sea .......

Taipei main Station: EEC Elite Mart: They have a MKY Card for NTD255 Talk time to Singapore 75 mins
I go down to the back, Taipei City Mall underground , all the way to the End Sec 1: Indo Jaya- GS Card for NTD90/- for Talktime to Singapore 90/- mins. There is no call back, you just follow the instructions and dial a whole series of numbers.
