No point rush to hua lian lah.
Maybe u can go jiu fen. Got direct bus there no worry. Journey about 1hr. Along the way can go rui fan. Or u can take train to rui fan, shop around there then go up to jiu fan.

Jiu fan is a old street up in the hill. A tourist attraction.

thanks bro.. than which area i can buy those local food to bring back singapore?? like " Tu Chan" ?? thanks again

they selling at wholesale prices. if u find the same clothes in ximending or somewhere else, u will probably find it also in wufenpu at half the price.
Actually if you do browse around ximenting, same clothes sell the same price as wufenpu, even taipei underground mall sell the same price as wufenpu.

Can anyone suggest the route for me if I intend to cover these locations in 8-9 days?

Tentatively, I thought of doing this:

Taipei(2 nites)
Beitou
Alishan(1 nite)
Tainan
Hualian(1 nite)
Taichung
Taipei(2 nites)

Not so sure how many days I should spend on each location, as my knowledge of the locations are really limited. Any lao jiaos can advise?

Hi everyone.i asked dis question b4....but no one replied mi :s but reply asap can?
1) for the tour trip to hualian (taroko gorge )takin the bus or taxi,they juz drive u round the place and back arh W/O stopping? or they drive u there, give you some time to explore ard n drive u back?

2) how to go to hualian from rainbow hotel? hmm, correct mi if i'm wrong..izzit take train from Taipei Main station n juz directly take e train to hualian ? cos when i go to the railway website, saw on the website to take a train from taipei to hualian, the starting station is " Shu-lin". I dun understand leh....

Hi Byleek,

1. just came back from Taipei, originally i booked the Taiwan Bus Company half day tour for NT550 for Taroko National Park Tour which includes Swallow Grotto, Tiansiang, Changchun shrine (hours 10.30am-3.30pm). Apparently they will bring you to their marble/stone factory. When we reach there, some one approached us (since there were 3 of us offered to drive us around for NT600 which includes the above as well as to 七星潭 (beach nice rocks). FYI, you should try to booked the tickets earlier as when we went there one day b4 to book the train tickets to Hualian, there were no more seats for the 6.45am train. If you like I will post his telephone number here and you can call him and he said that he will pick you up from the train station. your timing can then be flexible. He also brought us to eat the Hualian Special wanton @ NT60 per bowl ie about S$3. He also stop by the road side for us to buy sweet potato/yam roasted

2. Take the train from the Taipei Main Railway station situated at the Taipei MRT station (one stop away from Ximending)
