[QUOTE=dreamer75]Here's my itenery, can the bros here give some comments? thanks!


Yeliu? (is it nice, worth to go??) - Yes for me. I like the unique rock formations


Qns :
1) Is tian Mu and YangMingShan worth going? - YangMin Shan - not really for me, I thought I could see lots of flowers but was too little due to the season and not worth the journey there cause only see the flower clock

Oh by the way, Dansui, you can go about evening time, say 4pm. Cause, you can just see the sunset there. Walk about and have dinner there. If you like you can take the ferry over to the other island for seafood But remember to check last ferry back. I believe it is 8pm or something like that. DON't Miss the ferry. Understand from somebody that the seafood over at the other island is cheaper.

Thanks bro!!

The ferry terminal is at Dan Shui ( NT40 one way... bus NT10 )
U can go Yu Ren Ma Tou first... then on the way back, tell the ferry in charge that U want to go to the island (which i forgot the name)... Then they will drop u at the island first before dropping everyone back at Dan Shui. Remember to buy some local products in Dan Shui.

For those who cant sleep at night, I recommand this restaurant to u all

Xiao Li Zi porridge restaurant (open in the evening till 6am)
Taipei Fu Xing South Road 2 section 142
They serve great taiwan porridge (sweet potatoes porridge, then the dishes u order yourself)
Very nice and around NT200 each only even if u order a table full of dishes

Or u can go party world KTY at night, which u pay around S$20 bucks for 4 hrs of singing at midnight and a mini buffet of snacks, finger food, salad, ice cream and drinks. The ktv cabin comes with a private toilet
