Hi all,

We (2pax) will be going to Taiwan from 20 - 29 sept:

Planning to visit the following places:
-Kenting
-Cing Jing
-Taipei (Also include leefoo village, jiu fen etc.)
-Maybe Hualien

Will just like to see if anyone is interested in sharing cab to these places? We are quite flexible to travelling plans, so pm us if you want to share cab.

Thanks!

Check in hotel and go Ximenting area for dinner & a bit shopping

After lunch go Kaohsiung by bullet train
Query -> Is it troublesome to drag 4 luggages with elderly and 1 child from Ximenting area to Taipei Main station? Cos if take cab, I think we have to take 2 cab. But if the mrt has no lift or escalator (more staircases) then die die must take cab. Can someone advise please? Thank you
Around 4-5 pm arrive Kaohsiung, plan to go Liuhe nightmarket

7 Sep : Plan to go National Museum of Marine & Aquarium but not sure worth to go or not. Or just go Dream Mall and go Cijin Peninsula eat seafood. Any other nice places to recommend in Kaohsiung?

8 Sep : if nothing much in Kaohsiung, will go back Taipei in morning around 10am.
Arrive Taipei, check in Royal Castle hotel then go Beitou hotspring, Dansui, Wufenpu and Rouhe night market.
Query : Is it too pack or just nice?

9 Sep : 8 am go Leofoo Themepark till 4 pm then go Shihlin nightmarket

10 Sep : Plan to go Sun Yat Sen and CKS memorial Hall, take lunch then chcek out and go back Sg. 7 pm flight

National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium >> yes worth going, spectaculating seaview there. got dolphin show also need to check timing

imo kaohsiung nothing much to do in the day, maybe 85 building or various departmental stalls u can find around wufu 3rd street....

agree with fireworks79, dont pack danshui and wufenpu n raohe on the same day... will be pretty worn out from all the walking.. danshui to shilin is nearer than to wufenpu

4pm should be fine, depends on what transport u take... i recently took freego to the airport, got some delay and was picked up by public bus which was packed (had to stand n squeeze with my luggage duh) later on transfer to their coach to the airport. so maybe hire a cab is better if folks n kids are with u

no problem with charging, just get the adapter locally like what fireworks79 suggest. otherwise can borrow them from the hotel receptionist for 100NT deposit (refundable upon return)

Hi, thanks for your advise.
1. May I know where is xiziwan?
2. Decided to book car from hotel T$2,000 (the lady said the car can accomodate 9 ppl). Is it too expensive? Or I just book from airport?
3. For 8 Sep, if I skip Beitou, where should I go for 10-2pm? My priority is Danshui and Wufenpu & Raohe night market. How about Taipei 101, Miramar wheel?
Plan to go beitou on the last day cos we only need to go airport at 4 pm. I believe should have enough time.

Hi, thanks for your advise. Decided to go National Museum of Marine & Aquarium. Have you gone to the Cijin Peninsula? Heard lots of cheap seafood there? And Sizih Bay?
