It's direct to SML Via Taichung and Puli. Very comfortable New Buses:Leaves hourly,so you can leave early. About 4 hrs trip. NTD830 return trip.

TAIPEI - SUN MOON LAKE via PULI on Green Transit Bus:http://www.greenbusgroup.com/home.htm
Outside MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station Exit 2, bus departs from No. 274 Zhongxiao E. Rd. Sec. 3
台北市忠孝東路三段274號<忠孝復興捷運站二號出口旁> 
Reservations: (02)2752-2988 Bus Service: 6:00~22:00
Tour SML about half a day. Please note, stuff like the boat ride on SML requires 4 persons minimum, otherwise you might have to wait.
possible to tour SML and taichung in 1 day?

wat are the other options to SML via taipei?

thanks so much for the info.

Since the to and fro trip will take abt an entire 8 hours, as such, would it stilll be possible to do SML in one day from Taipei?

As in, take the earliest Green Transit bus from Taipei Zhongxiao Fuxing to SML, and then latest bus from SML to Taipei?

If it is possible, what time is the earliest and latest bus?
Does the bus bring you straight to SML or do i need to transfer to another bus?


Also the fare NT830 return trip...does it mean to and fro ticket costs NT830 altogehter?

thanks in advance for the reply...
