wow cool !!!!

I be going this wk but only 4 days due to work schedule....

can ask you some qn ????
you got go to ye liu and jiu fen pu ?
got anything nice there ?

also any nice food to recommand :p
yeliu only have rocks formations, i don't recommend the place if you are not into sceneries and your time there is short.

are u refering to jiu fen or wu fen pu? Jiu fen is a nice place with tea houses to relax at while wu fen pu is a wholesale shopping area for clothes.

Hi,

Am planning a trip @ last week of Sept.

Planning to cover Penghu, Alishan, Taroko Gorge and Taipei. Would 6-7 nites be enuff?

Any recommendations for accomodations @ Alishan, for those who went before?

Is anyone able to advise on the weather @ the respective area during sept end?

Thanks !

Not really enuff if u intend to visit penhu coz tht'll take u 3D2N. for a proper coverage of those places mentioned, i recommend at least 10days & tht is only if u're already familiar with the routes or u've to do v. thorough planning

i'd reccomend u to stay at least 2 nites in Hualien. other than going taroko gorge, U can do water rafting, dolphin watching, ocean park etc... Hualien is a nice place to relax

As for Alishan, 1 nites will do as the main objective of going there is to catch the view of sunrise. Here's one of my photos:

I just got back from Taipei on 25th, TPE WAS super super HOT HOT HOT!!!

and regarding Mao Kong Cable Car, i suggest DON'T TAKE! it has NO AIRCON and it stalled for a FEW HOURS on 21st. I saw it on the tw news. HENG i didnt go, i wanted to go lor...

and on Tues, it rained a while, and the cable car was OUT OF SERVICE. when i took their MRT, there was an announcement that the cable car is out of service.. diao.
i read the cable car got no 避雷针。。 can get strike by lightning !! better be safe than sorry.

anyway i find that wu fen pu is GREAT. well, for gals.. not for guys.. i bought a lot of things there. Shilin is GOOD for FOOD & cutesy t-shirts & accessories...

didn't find any clothes or shoes in Shilin leh. disappointed sia. maybe it was TOO HOT for me to shop in Shilin.

just to share a tip. don't bother going the underground malls they have.. very boring stuff. there's TWD200 shoes found in the underground malls, but all sama as SG. you can go if you really want to buy those 娃娃鞋 (doll shoes). but no need to search through all the shops because 90% all same..
