yes, abv is correct, just make sure u time the ruifang train. its not v. freq
bus from jiufen goes all the way to keelung. its the ending stop. just alight when i ends

anyway, i always suggest skipping shifen. no idea wht's interestin there.

depends on wht u wanna do at jiufen. if its just jiufen & walk around jiufen, yes, 3hrs shd be enuff.
u can take bus to taipei, there is. or u return via the way u go via train. just remember to time the train schedule.

Jioufen 九份 (Best To Go On Weekdays)
  • Taipei Main Station 台北车站 > Cross the road using an overhead bridge from the train station > Take Keelung Bus 基隆客运巴士 > The bus stop is in front of a clinic with a blue signboard > The service to Jioufen has a sign that reads 基隆 > 九份 > 金瓜石 OR
  • Zhongxiao Fuxing Station 中孝复兴 > Exit 1 > Take the bus that reads 基隆 > 九份 > 金瓜石 (Takes about 1hr 45mins) - NT90 OR
  • Board a railway train to Rueifang Railway Station 瑞芳站 > Transfer to a Keelung bus outside the station.
  • After alighting from the train > Exit the station & walk to the front of the railway station > The road in front of the station is Mingdeng Road Sec 3. If you are going to Jioufen or Jinguashih 金瓜石, you would need to cross Mingdeng Road Sec 3 to the bus stop just outside the shops & café > Take the Keelung bus heading to "Jinguashih" for Jioufen. The bus will terminate at Jinguashih. Bus fare: NT22 (To Jiufen/Jinguashih same bus fare). The bus journey uphill takes about 20mins (to Jiufen)
  • Alight at the Old street (Chishan Street) stop along the road bend > You can see the 7-11 convenience store
[For return: Can take a Keelung Bus directly to Taipei > Stops at Raohe St Night Market 绕河夜市 or Zhongxiao Fuxing Station Stop (竽圆,果冻 from Ah Xing's stall,Li Yi Bing Dian (李仪饼店) OR Li Gu Bing Dian (李鹄饼店) 太阳饼,凤梨酥,芋头酥,Mochi). Li Yi has opened a new outlet at Taipei Main Station Front Metro Mall]

Cool

if u dun scare of "trouble" then u can fly 2 bkk 1st using budget air (feb gt promo i think only $38/1way), then change plane in bkk using KLM cost ard S$350 nett + can get burger king snacks while waiting at the airport this 1 total cost will b juz ard $400+ but you get premium flight to taipei , rather than spending the same amt using jetstar =boring, no food, no entertainment..

Thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated!

But I don't think Freego Bus brings me straight to my hotel. In that case, I will have to take the Kuo Kuang Bus to Taipei Main Station then take a taxi down or go down to Ximen Station,search and ask around.

since its in ximen station, find a nearest hotel in the list to ur hotel, then walk there lor. can save the taxi fare.
