Private room at the Hotspring joints is generally for 2 persons, there you dont need the swimwear and everything is provided.
You should sheck the websites for their special offers for weekdays including tea e.t.c. Sometimes as low as NTD1200 for 1.5 hrs and some access to the public facilities (swimwear needed)

They have wine(DRINK) shops all over. You can also go to the Hypermarkets for the wines - prices reasonable. Hey Taiwan Booze is cheap in retail supermarkets - JW BLACK about NTD700+ only. Cigarettes cheapest in asia on the retail, many brands NTD35 per pack, so if you are a smoker, dont carry your singapore's super overpriced ciggies.

Today is a blistering 33C !! Man is it hot!! NO rain in sight

Some buses have no Number-BUT LED sign-Jinguashi-Jiufen-Keelung
woot~ 33C is hell for tourist i guess.. walking ard under the hot sun..

i guess april will be the best weather... luckily i went to taiwan in april instead of may.. =)

Leave about 8 am
Yeilou :Take a Kuo Kuang (02-2558 3060) Bus from the North Station of KuoKuang
Bus in Taipei Near Taipei Main Station to Yeliou (NT92 per head).
Important Note: The GouGuang Bus North Station is now known as Taipei Intercity
Bus Terminus.

I do the route as I recommend to all of you and found that doing just Yeliou,
Jinguashi, Jioufen and Keelung is nice and not too tiring. The Buses are all
new and Clean with good Airconditioning. The Drivers call out all the Major
stops. There are toilets everywhere including one in Yeliou
across from the New Temple being built when walking towards the Yeliou Scenic
Area (No Soap or TP here). Yeliou Entry cost : NTD50 and NTD25 (Adult/Kids)
The Bus to Keelung is in front of the Convenience store across from where you
get off at Yeliou.In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to
board bus to Jinguashi if coming from Yeliou:

Jinguashi also needs a lot of walking especially if you hit the trails.Lovely scenes and very rustic, Entry NTD100/- (Cheaper for kids - Was not paying attention )

Forumers tip on getting off at 7/11 and walking down the steps is great too in
Jioufen(No energy to walk up-did I mention something about getting old!!)
Buy Tai yang bing, muah chee, tie dan (metal eggs) here.However
, do this last before your return trip otherwise, once down, following the road
out is residential area and leads to a large temple. There is a bus stop
outside for buses that heads to Rueifang ,Keelung or Taipei.
Good to eat here first in Jioufen then walk it off before heading to Keelung
Miaokow where you will also find lots of lovely local food as well. In
Keelung,getting to Miaokow: Getting off the bus, walk back passed the Sea
(Keelung River??)all the way to the otherside to the Macdonalds. Passing the shops in that street,
Miaokow is on your left at the First Junction. Not difficult to find. From Keelung Station
you just cross the Street and walk along the Sea ......

To Jinguashi and Jioufen, it's via Keelung on a Keelung Bus

The Bus to Keelung is in front of the Convenience store across from where you
get off at Yeliou.In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to
board bus to Jinguashi if coming from Yeliou:

The rest of the Journey is by Keelung bus. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y97/nuttyazn/Taiwan/2006%20July/KeelungBustoJofunandJingwaxi.jpg
You Dont have to get off at Rueifang

It's NTD92 to Yeliou , then It's NTD44 to Keelung and another NTD44 to Jinguashi, Then a 22 to Jioufen then another NTD44 to Keelung. From Keelung ,you can take the train back to Taipei or a Bus.

There are other buses there as well, just read the signboards.
