jiufen
tianmu
hot spring
yeliou
Shilin
xmd
LongShan Temple
101
Mirama ferris
Xindian(Wanted to go Wulai..but the weather was a little disappointing, ended up at the bi tan, which is a nice place too! Think xiao gui lin, but maybe 100 times better?)
Their universities( Shi da and Tai Da). Dont ask me why i visit their universities but i like visiting universities. Lol, Anyway Tai Da is a good place.
Memorial hall
and of coz a few other night markets.

shopping wise, not much. All female stuff and winter stuff. Bought alot of goodies and bought bf2142(ard 8 dollars cheaper) for myself though. hehe. Lastly, got to thank all the pple here for the kind input through out the whole thread, especially nutty.

okie... need a little help here on the itenary of my trip to taipei it will be a 7 day FnE trip.. we are traveling in a grp of 4 from 26th dec to 1st jan

here goes,

Day 1 Tuesday 26th Dec
Morning Flight, reaching about 1pm
Late afternoon, after checking in, walk around XMD
Night, Shilin NM

Day 2 Wednesday 27th Dec
Morning, buy tickets to Hualian for Day 3... Then proceed to Yeliu
Noon, Move to RuiFang for JuiFen.. here comes a small problem... i still can really figure out which place to visit first shld i go to shifen?? as i read thur here, i notice ppl mention that trains going in and out of shifen is infrequent... therefore is it better to do without shifen??

With Shifen i am hopping to be something like this, RuiFang --> Shifen --> RuiFang --> JianGuaShi --> JiuFen --> RuiFang
Without Shifen i am hopping to be something like this, RuiFang --> JinGuaShi --> JiuFen --> RuiFang

Then Night time, KeeLong, MiaoKou Seafood Stalls....

Day 3, Thursday 28th Dec
Hua Lian, am thinking of contacting Ms Vivian Zheng that lots of forumers recommanded here, do you all think it is abit later to contact her now? As i will be going there for only 1 day, what are some places to recommand? i am looking at the taroko george and Qi Xin Tan...
Do you all think we can fit in any NM here???

Day 4, Friday 29th Dec
Morning, YMS
Early Noon, Beitou Hot spring
Late Noon, DanShui, Lovers Bridge,
Night, Mirama Ferris Wheel ShiLin NM

Day 5, Saturday 30th Dec
Morning, about 9am like this DingTaiFung, most prob skipping lunch..
Noon, Guang Hua (computer stuff and comics) followed by TianMu and WuFenPu (is it possible to cover this 2 places b4 going to the NM??? can i reconfirm that TianMu sells warehouse rejects of branded stuffs and sort.. and what will be the recommanded time to visit WuFenPu on a sat? i see most ppl here visit them on weekdays as opps to wkends..)
Night, Raohe NM

Day 6, Sunday 31st Dec (NY Eve)
Morning, slack around i guess, any other place to fit in here?
Late Morning ~ Early Noon, Shoe Street (my understanding is that it is at YuanLing Rd which i believe is near TMS, anyway are they similar to that of hongkong's show street??)
Noon, Zhong Xiao Area i will suppose this will be where all the shopping centers comes in... like NYNY, Warner, SOGO and sort i guess) but slightly b4 reaching zhong xiao area, i rmb reading somewhere that there is an undergrd shopping center @ TMS, is it better to go there b4 heading to ZhongXiao Area??
Maybe will head up into taipei 101 (if it is not too croweded noting that there will be a event going on there for the countdown) mingle ard that area for the countdown to NY.... which i guess will take us thur the night...
ok i am grping TMS and the 3 ZhongXiao MRT together here, are they all within walking distance say from 1 shopping center to other... and are there any recommanded shopping centers that we should take note and will they be open???

Day 7, Monday 1st Jan
The flight back is at 1800, therefore what will be a good time to leave for the airport??
anyway i dunno what to plan for this day, as my concern will be are the shops open? it is new year day... and most prob by the time we wake up shld be ard noon or checkout time whichever is eariler...
any place did i miss out??

anyway thanks in advance for anyone that is going to help me vet thur my itenary first... and help will be greatly appreciated many thanks again
Cool, I'm going during the exact same period.
Plans almost 80% similar too, but Hualian is not included. Will be going to either Pinglin or Yingge instead.
No confirmation of hotels for the last couple of days... haha will figure that out when we are there.

Is IT better to travel in jetstar or sq?sq fare is 1024$ while jetstar is 816$...the taxes both charge differently. So jetstar need to top up taxes when departing taiwan airport?

u can choose by train or by bus
train is faster but more expensive
all depend on how much time u 1 2 spend on the transportation..
