start end type duration
07:30 10:35 自強號 直達車 3小時5分
08:00 10:08 自強號 直達車 2小時8分

from taipei to hualien, anyone can explain how is the above possible?
do they have multiple tracks on their railway lines in the same direction for overtaking or what?

and how come the same 自強號 can have so much travel time difference?

Tour Alishan

Hi all,

Is it possible to tour alishan for a day? Is it worth to take on the Taiwan Tour Bus to Alishan?

If it is, where to get the tickets? Visitor center at the airport or at Taipei Main Station.

If it is not a good idea, what's the best way to tour Alishan if I am willing to stay one night for the sunset? I am quite confused about all the information I have, plus my reading ability of mandarin is limited! Thanks for anyone's advice!

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)
universe, thanks for the info. Think I will just take up those packages to save the trouble. Is the hotel you stayed at Alishan good? Accessible?


I'm planning a day trip to Hualien, 1 night stay at Alishan and SML respectively. Is the following correct way to travel to those places. I'm abit lost after all those research. Would appreciate the help.

Taipei > Hualien
- Ximen Station > Taipei Main Station 台北火車站 > Hualien 花蓮火車站 by Zhi Chiang Train 自強號 TRA (3hrs)

Taipei > Alishan
- Taipei Main Station 台北火車站 > Chiayi HSR Station嘉义火車站 by Taiwan High Speed Rail 台灣高鐵.
- Shuttle Bus or Train (TRA) > Chiayi Railway Station.
- Chiayi Railway Station > Alishan by County City Bus

Alishan > Sun Moon Lake
- Alishan > Chiayi Bus Station by County City Bus
- Chiayi Railway Station > Taichung Railway Station by TRA > SML by Nantou Bus (take at Taichung High Speed Rail Station) OR alternatively Chiayi Railway Station > Ershuei Station by TRA > Cycle to SML

Sun Moon Lake > Taipei
- SML > Taipei West Station by Kuo Kuang Bus (120mins) OR
- SML > Taichung by Nantou Bus (alight at Taichung High Speed Rail Station) > Taipei Main Station by TRA (2hrs-3hrs)
