Miramar Ferris wheel Get there: Take MRT to Jiantan – Bus 167/ MRT to Yuangshan. Exit #1 cross road diagonally to Soccer Stadium bus stop. Take 21, Red 2 both very frequent. or 247, 287)
there’s a free shuttle bus to miramar outside jiantan mrt - Correct

The MRT to Yuanshan is for the Martyr's Shrine

From Jioufen,If you dont go back to Keelung, you can take a bus directly to Taipei

Journey time for ruifang to jinguashi

Journey time for ruifang to yeliu

Day3
ZhongXiao morning nothing much. shops dont open till 11am. go taipei city hall 1st can take photos walk walk until 101 open at 10:30 for the first session. if you really want to go zhongxiao area, maybe can squeeze in in the evening.

Day4
I went Miaokuo about 4-5 already quite happening already. any earlier im not sure. go until danshui should not be a problem. keelung take bus to taipei main station then mrt there. can hang out at danshui old street until sun set then go fisherman wharf and wait for the bridge to light up. after that you should have enough time to go else where. for me i went back to shiling for more food.

i would recommend you go to taipei train station(not the MRT), theres a visitor center there. tell them where you want to go. they will help you plan the fastest way to go there according to the train or bus schedule. and always bring your passport with you, put it in a bag or something. i dont feel safe leaving it in the hotel.

The MRT to Yuanshan is for the Martyr's Shrine

From Jioufen,If you dont go back to Keelung, you can take a bus directly to Taipei

harlow nuttyazan or anyone

can you all comment if this info is correct??
cos a bit complicated from yeliu to jinguashi to jiufen and keelung and miaokou??
seem like no mrt only bus
i thanks for any help keke

Yeliu(morning)
Get there: Go out by exit 1 at Taipei Main STN. Take a Kuo Kuang Bus 19(NT92 per head) from the North Station of KuoKuang. Look for the Kuo Kuang counter and purchase tickets to Yeliu. Trip was around 1hr 20mins. Stopped at the Yeliu stop, go in Yeliu must pay NT50 and walked about 10-15mins to the Yeliu tourist park.
Jinguashi(afternoon)
Get there: From Yeliu take a Keelung Bus to the Keelung Main Station( in front of the Convenience store across from where you get off at Yeliu). From there you can take a bus to Jinguashi, the bus stops at Ruifang and Jiufen on the way. In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to board bus to Jinguashi if coming from Yeliu:
Note: monday it's closed. The museums will be closed at 5pm.
Need to buy admission ticket to Jinguashi from Ruifang
Jiufen(sunset, evening)
Get there: from Yeliu, take a Keelung Bus heading to Keelung Train STN(1.5 hr) first. The bus stop can be found opposite the bus stop u alight at Yeliu. After reaching Keelung Train STN, ask around for the bus stop which is near Train STN to head for Jiufen(1hr).
Keelung+ Miaokow (night) seafood
Get there: From the bus stop opposite where you alighted for Yeliu earlier (in front of the Convenience store across from where you get off at Yeliu), take the Keelung bus. Fare is NT 44. If you want to go to Miao Kou, it's about 1-2 bus stops before the terminal.
