Hi ppl,

i read the posts and i'm interested in the yeliu -> jingguashi -> jiufen -> keelung. i tried to gather info abt getting to these place using public transport. Is this correct?:

1. getting to yeliu from taipei should be easy, no prob.

2. from yeliu, take bus to Keelung, in front of the Convenience store across from where you get off at Yeliou.

3. In Keelung you have to cross the bridge to the other side to board bus to Jinguashi if coming from Yeliou.

4. not too sure how to get to jiufen from jingguashi. where to take the bus?

5. back journey from jiufen to keelung.

6. keelung to taipei.

hope someone can help. tks!

4. if u take bus to jingguashi, you'll know how to get from there to jiufen, dun worry, coz bus -> jingguashi will pass by jiufen on the way day. They're just 1 stop apart.

Dreammall is so big, cant finished walking it.

But there's nice food over there.

Btw, there's a Hokkaido shop selling Hokkaido food at the basement.

I spotted Shiori Koibito

Ok, i've juz came back from Taipei a few days ago.. n I did went to Yeh Liu, Kee Lung n Jiu Fen..

from Taipei Main Station, the Kuo Kuang bus to Yeh Liu is taken at the Bus Terminal. This shud b quite alrite. But u wun b able to see Yeh Liu Geopark when u alight bus, so b attentive to see d bus inside LED notice for Yeh Liu.. from there, u walk in pass by a temple to Yeh Liu Geopark..

From Yeh Liu to Jiu Fen / Jinguashi, there's no direct bus. So u hafta go back to d bus stop where u alight n cross opposite, to take d bus to Kee Lung. When u alight at Kee Lung, cross opposite to take bus to Jiu Fen / Jinguashi. It's the same bus, which will travel to Jiu Fen and den go to Jinguashi.. So u can go either one 1st and another next..

After dat, from Jiu Fen to Taipei, u can take bus opposite Jiu Fen, which is in front of Li Yi Biscuit shop.. Take the bus to Taipei, which will pass by Raohe Night Market and den Zhongxiao Fuxing.

Your itinerary is too packed. Since you have extra days, why not spread out the activities. You have to take into account factors such as fatique and time taken to find your way around.

For day 1, it's best to check with the cabby in advance. He might not want to take you to Kenting at night since it's likely that he will need to drive back to Kaohsiung with an empty cab.

Do you mean the taipei ones are too pack? if yes, than i just don bother about the remaining days and use it as reserve.

I was thinking of paragliding too, so that leaves me 02 days extra for taipei....

the Kenting trip, i am arranging with the dive shop to get someone to pick us up, worst case, we just take bus...
