bus to yeliu from taipei takes approximately 1hr 40 mins, and it takes abt 10 mins to walk in from the main road to the entrance of ye liu. if u merely wanna take fotos of the mushroom rocks, ye liu will probably take like 20 mins, though if you wanna explore the whole yeliu and walk all the way to the end of the headland (which i did), it will take abt 2+ hrs.

12noon-1pm - check in to minsu and walk ard jiufen (anything there to see @ tis time?)

u can either take bus to jiufen from keelung (approximately 1hr+, cant really remember since i slept most of the way) or take taxi to jiu fen from ruifang. anyway from ye liu there's only bus to keelung (approximately 1.5hrs), u will have to switch a bus from keelung to jiufen. frankly there's nothing much to see at jiufen, wouldnt take more than 2hrs to cover the whole place. though me and my friends took 2 hours just sitting on the rooftop of a teaplace, brewing tea and watching the sunset and enjoying the cool breeze.

i would advise u to just travel back to taipei from jiu fen, since it will only take like 1.5 hrs if u take a bus to rui fang and switch to a train from there.

oh ya, miao kou is a street in keelung... ask the bus driver where to drop off.
