wao this thread is really great!! so much useful information. I be going to Taipei in jan spending 4 nights there and 2 nights in Hualian. really looking forward to the trip!!

Does anybody knows how far away is the Taoyuan railway station(not high speed) from the Taoyuan airport? Is there any shuttle buses operating between these 2 terminals? I will be taking the Zi Qiang train from hualian all the way to Taoyuan railway station and wondering how can i get to the airport from there. Also is the Zi Qiang train lugguage friendly?? any compartments to store the luggage?

Thanks a million!!

Are you referring to the Free Go Bus Company from Taoyuan airport? If so, you may wish to visit this website for details on the major stops along the way:

If you watch the Taiwan movie Cape No. 7 海角七号, it took place at 垦丁. The hotel is 夏都

Is there anything to see or do at Alishan beside watching sunrise? Is it worth a visit?
Is this the correct way to travel to Alishan?
Taipei Main Station > Chiayi HSR Station by THSR > transfer tran to Chiayi TRA Station > Take Alishan Forest Railway
Do I have to reserve the seats online first?

Btw, does freego bus stops at Neijiang hotel? Many tks

currently at taipei, taoyuan airport going back to sing...waiting to check in @ 1200 hrs

weather @ taipei: temp is ard 10-20degrees...without the wind, weather is damn good. with the occasional wind, i wore a t-shirt, windbreaker with sweater...enough liao...

as for the $$$ issue, the rate @ taoyuan airport now is 21.77...pls stop asking about the rate in the airport...the rate is definitely better than in singapore...

as for alishan, the forest train is out of service...so cannot take the forest train, have to take a bus/cab up... the bus fare is ard NT215 IIRC, but i took a cab up for NT750 (for 3 pax)

my itinerary in alishan is:
reach alishan @ ard 1pm. went to jalan in the forest recreational area (which is actually a forest reserves)
went for the tour organized by shen-mu hotel @ 440pm and 840pm to view the yun hai (sea of cloud), stars and dusk/sunset.
took a NT300/pax tour to view the sunrise @ yushan with tour guide + star viewing @ 440am (*yawn*).the NT300 tour was worth every cent. if dunwan to take the tour, have to pay NT150 to take train to zhushan (which is lower than yushan)
