Hi,
You can check out this offer for a Northern Tour (DIY) By train:
....the "Northeast Coast Railway One Day Pass," which covers all scenic spots and tourist attractions along the northeast coast of Taiwan. The pass costs only NT$130 (US$4) ....

Take freego bus from the airport. Just tell them your hotel and they will drop you there for the case of Futurestar.

hey peeps

thought i'll just u guys know. that freego no longer drop passengers directly at their respective XMD hotels anymore. you will have to change to another shuttle bus. dun worry, the paid ticket will cover the change over too.

i will recommend staying in the XMD hotels.
