Hi.. ur day 4 seems odd?

Shifen waterfalls is at Taipei.. But sun moon lake is not? how u gonna fit it in a day? Travelling to Shifen Waterfalls, already will take quite some time...

I would probably go alishan cos my fren told me that there are sakuras blooming at this period of time, so jus wan to go and take a look.
Sakuras(Cherry Blossoms also In Beitou and Yangmingshan (Taipei) No need to go so far.

If you want to go to Alishan then you should head for Taichung on day of arrival, Next day Day -2) go to SML for the day tour and return to Taichung, overnight at Chiayi and go -Day 3) to Alishan in the Day and return to Chiayi by the afternoon bus and then come to Taipei in th evening. - Day 4 Do Shimen WF first then Jioufen.
Day 5 and 6 do the Taipei Stuff.

day 4 - i think ur SML can go during day 3 since u are at Taichung, y travel out & in of taipei?
day 5 - after DTF, it will be too early to got Wu fen pu (go after 4.30pm), maybe u can shop others areas, Which DTF u gg?
day 6 - actually u can go to CKS on day 6 & back to XMD.

PLAN B

day 1 (tue): arrvial, xmd, shilin
day 2 (wed): Zhongxiao fuxing, tapei 101, New York Shopping centre
day 3 (thu): YMS, Beitou, danshui
day 4 (fri): Jiufen, shifen waterfalls

btw is the jetstar asia return trip at $460 sgd considered expensive? or travel agencies provide cheaper rates? actually im planning to go to taipei this march.. $460 is the cheapest airfare i could find online. im planning to go for a 6D5N trip.. and stay at ts hotel
Agencies will give you a better price when there is no promotion from JetStar. With promotion, JetStar is definitely cheaper.

oh, cos when i m in taipei, i went to beitou hotspring, then late afternoon i went to danshui, walk walk & fisherman wharf (lovers bridge) to catch the sunset, (but too bad, it was raining), the pl is very quiet maybe cos is a weekday. after that i went to shilin for dinner & shopping.

ic, if u really wan to go Tao yuan maybe u can consider LeoFoo village theme www.leofoo.com.tw park if not

i rather u pick Jiufen, a very nice place. From Taipei, take the train north to Ruifang Station (abt 40-45mins). From Ruifang take the Keelung Transit bus from the bus stops in front of the train station to Jiufen (cross the road). The bus trip is roughly 15 minutes.

We will be having early Breakfast on arrival then to Baotou Hot Spring....was told to bring swimming cap as this is compulsory.....and towels too...don't they provide towels after the Hot Spring dip? Also to hand carry prior to Taiwan is Lip Gross & moisturizer.......

Is It necessary to hand carry wind breakers instead of putting them into our luggage bag for check in? Many thanks to yr advises.......Taiwan here we Come......
