ya i can get the 2 tickets at 570.. but for some of the days, the discounted fares were sold out.. so you might wanna choose another day..

basically i think the offer doesn't mean buy 1 get 1.. it means 50% off for each person when you book at least 2 tickets..

Hi all, I have read thru all and although its lengthy and took some time but I have some questions since I will be going to Taiwan this coming monday 6D5N on my own:

1. I know that can cover Jiufen, Kelung, Yeliu in one day but I wanna know does anyone propose which place in which order first? Cause I know surely put Keelung at the last for the nightmarket so stuck between Yeliu and Jiufen which to go first and the routes how am I going to take.

2. Since its a 6D/5N trip, has anyone tried to cover the following in one day before like Alishan in Jiayi, Taroko Gorge in Hualian, Sun Moon Lake? Cause I will be going for sightseeing so was considering can choose any one of these in one place and I have booked TS hotel in Ximen Ding dunno if its a hassle or nt?

3. What is the weather like in Taipei now? Cause was thinking of packing what clothes to go there

For me staying at TS hotel, i have an early morning flight taking off at 740am, if you were in my shoes, which would u take, freego or guo guang bus to airport?

around what time should we reach airport before takeoff to check-in?

All the freego or guo guang buses returns tickets can be bought at a counter at the airport when we arrive in taipei, am i correct?

Emergency:
It is Yeliou then to Jioufen via Keelung then back to Keelung and Miaokow.

Drop Alishan as it means you have to spend the night there. You can do SML in One day and You can do Hualien(Toroko) on another day.
Weather isquite eratic. It was 14C~18C early this week for 3 days, Now it is 18C ~28C, SO, Just bring one jacket for emergency, in case there is a cold front. Anyway, once you are here if it gets cold, the just buy a new Jacket, Many good ones now available for NTD390/-

Freego bus does not have a pickup so early in the morning. their first bus leaves at about 4.30 am from bus stop outside Hsien Tien Temple on Sungchiang Road. You can take a cab there . The Second bus is at 5am.
You should be at the Airport by about 5.45.
Dont buy the return ticket and keep your options open.

Thanks nuttyyazn for the reply. So do u suggest I going to Alishan or Hualian Toroko? Cause I am in a dilemma now whether to go there since I am on 6D5N trip. So the weather will be cooling wise as u but the jackets wise will be in winter wear or?
