There is a bus from Jioufen to Keelung and vice versa-Just read the LED Signboard. If you are there early in Keelung , take a bus ride on No. 103- you can go to Bisha Fishing port and along the way there is a Recreational park with a 22.5 Mtr Kuan Yin Statue.

From Keelung, you can take the train or bus back to Taipei.

You need to go to Rueifang only if you are planning to go to Shifen and Pingshi.
thks. u're the man!

Based on what I saw, there are quite a number of shops selling guys clothes and shoes at Wufenpu. For a t-shirt, the price is generally about NT350, which translate to about SGD16.. There are shops that sells shirt too and maybe around NT500? Gotta test out your bargaining skills lor...

personally, i prefer shopping here than at shilin, it's less crowded...

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 ......

just came back from taiwan today, was my 2nd time there, and i enjoyed it as much as the first trip, if not even more. this time when i went to taroko gorge, my friends and i hired this local guide who is a retired teacher that had lived in hualian most of his life, so he is pretty knowledgeable about the area. he brought us to the lesser known locations that tourists normally wouldnt know abt as well as bringing us to cheap and nice eating places in hualian.

some of the less visited areas is this li yu tan (direct translation = carp/koi lake), where u can cycle or get on swan paddle boats to go around the lake. best of all, in the evening, there are lots of fireflies around this area.

he also brought us to areas like one of the local university, and some of his friends houses in the country side and sea side, which let us peep a lil more into the lifestyle of the ppl in hualian. scenery at those places while nowhere near the standards of taroko gorge, is pretty nice too.
