hi, where to get tickets for tt?
The boarding point is outside the Train Station near Tourist Visitor Center. Look out for the colorful bus. you can sign up n pay on the spot. 500NT pax includes only tour and no meals. Would suggest you bring your own sandwiches or bread rather than taking their meals. Quite ex, imo.

besides Taroko gorge, can go rafting in hualian (if u adventurous enuf...). basically u need a car to explore hualian.. can forget abt the Ocean Park there cos nutting much.

Going to alishan from hualian is troublesome cos not along the way... n think u haf to travel quite a distance - if u r driving (If u not driving, worse, haf to transfer a couple of times)

its better to go alishan from taipei. take bus from taipei to jiayi, then from there, take train up to alishan
