Still confused on getting to Janfusan theme park in Taichung.

First alternative, High speed rail, 1 hour's journey, 700NT per ride.

Else, bus from Taipei, 2 - 3 hours.

Upon reaching Taichung, take the cab around? How far is Fengjie from the theme park. Also, how do I get back to Taipei at night?

Thanks.

the hsr is NT700 one way or reture??

wats else is there to do or must eat in taichung apart from tai yang bing?

Hi,

May I know how to get to the tai yang bing shop?

By the way, I'm trying to book a room at future star but I can't seem to get through. The correct number is this (02)2375-5500, right?

Beef Noodle soup@ 15 Taoyuan Street near Ximen Exit 3.

The eatery specializing in braised "pig knuckle on rice" and "milkfish on rice", which has been in business for 50 years:
"Zheng" 鄭 - No. 22 YenPing S. Rd.、Tel: (02)2371-1366 (Closed Sun.)
It's located where BoAi Rd.、Zhongxiao W. Rd. and YenPing S. Rd. all seem to merge next to Taipei Main Post Office. Can walk there from Ximenting Hotel.

XX Chicken

Hu Jio Bing

And where ever you see a long line of local waiting to get some food. Should be good.
