1) arrange a minsu. much better option
2) taoyuan -> taipei train station (1.5h by bus). taipei -> hualien by train (3-3.5hrs)
3) ask minsu lady to arrange for u

Its better to stay in ximending if going free and easy. Ximending can shop fpr 2-3 days alr. Hua Xi Street not worth going alr. Very boring.

if you dun mind pay a little more...try this one!! Book in advance and try going there on the weekday. weekend very very crowded. BUT if you prefer the scenic view one~ then take a cab from there up to the hot springs ...about NT160++(Cab Fare).


http://www.aquabella.com.tw/room_ch.php

I stayed there last month at NT$2280 comes with 2 breakfast and 2 dinners and if you book now~ FREE 2 organic Face Masks
Also they have Bath Tub in every room with the water from the spring. Clean & Comfy

Is just across from the beitou Metro...there's a map- check it out on the web!

Have fun
