Initially I wanted to put PS Bubu with Danshui but then I realise Danshui has alot of food to eat too.. Dun think can stomach more food from PS Bubu so had to put it somewhere else and it's kinda far out so can't fit in anywhere well.. Hehe.. Will try to shift shift abit again..

Yea, that's the Mr Lee.. U also got him for airport transfer?

that would depend on your agenda, shopping or sight seeing? that would be the best time for hot spring and some nature sight seeing i think.

hi, for the bus to leofoo village. if i do no purchase the tickets before hand, somemore i only board at jingan station. means if the bus is full when it reaches jing an, means i cant go le? what are the chances of meeting a packed bus?
Yes u have to alight at Jing An Statn. When u reach the station there will be sign board directing u to which bus stop to take the bus to "Leofoo chun"

Last yr i went , there was this taxi uncle standing ard the bus stop asking if we were interested to take his cab to go up to Leo Fu Chun ( Hence he gathered some more passengers and we travel up ) Save time !!

If u want to take bus, dun need to purchase for ticket . Ask the Bus driver how much u need to pay will do
