hello, i will be going taipei with a group of friends on 27th december and will need help with the itinerary. will be going there for 8D7N. but intending to go kaohshiung for the first few days for a day trip sorta thing.
Actually, Kaohsiung is quite a beautiful and interesting place. I would recommend 2-3 days instead...

Places to go - Kaohsiung Arena (Gao Xiong Ju Dan) - big mall.
Kaohsiung railway station - not so much the attraction it used to be but still worth a walk.
Central park has a "Harajuku" area with shoe shops.
Love river... has FREE movie screening at their movie library. FREE.
Siziwan - Take the boat to Qijin/Cijin 旗津 (Go in afternoon to see sunset). Very scenic.
There's a Hello Kitty shop also but I didn't go.
MEGA21 dream world - Didn't go either.
SKIP Liuhe Night Market - it's too commercialized.
There's also a lot of other scenic/temple area but I wasn't too much of the cultural person, am more urban person.

xuvilim : danshui's in taipei city, keelung is out of the city but within the taipei county. so they're not on the way at all. gd time to visit danshui will be ard sunset timing. but do take note that taiwan's nightfall is much earlier than sg's...ard 6 it's alr qt dark.

catpurrs : taichung is nt bad to visit for culture. they've qt a bit of historic sites there, a gd experience for culture trip. are you intending to have a short stay (meaning check-in to hotel) in the area?

i've went on a 1 wk trip covering 2days taipei county, 2 days tsinzhu, 2days kaohsiung. expenditure was abt 1K (excluding airfare only)
3days trip in taipei costs me slightly less than 1K, including airfare.

areas in taipei county...i'ld recommend jiufen then keelung. great place to go.
there's actually nature reserves in keelung. if u've the time, can go check out those places. personally went to one of those, the view was great and really worth the trip. (that's for me, diff pple may have diff preference)
also u can make a trip down to maokong / ah li shan for scenic tour.
taoyuan for me is just so-so...not much...

anyone frmo taipei? is the maokong cable car still under maintenance?
Gondola idle until next June


TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Maokong Gondola, one of Taipei's top tourist attractions, will remain idle until next June at the very least. "We'll have to suspend the cable car service for at least half a year," Mayor of Taipei Hau Lung-bin told a hasty press conference yesterday.

Free bus service offered during closure of Metro Muzha line


TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taipei’s Metro Muzha line will be closed for two days a week starting next Saturday, but free bus shuttles will be available. “No runs will take place on Saturday and Sunday from December 6 to January 18,” a Metro spokesman said yesterday. He said the two-day-a-week suspension is necessary because Taipei Metro will be testing a new electromechanical system.
