Also planning to visit Green Island a month from now..

Wish someone can really help me out with my itinerary.. we're just going for 7 days but my travel bud wants to do Taipei > Hualien > Cingjing > Green Island

Should I drop Cingjing for Tainan 1 day and Green Island 1 day?

Comparing it with beitou is different. It is sea water hotspring if i am not wrong...
And with infinity pool experience.
But weather is cold, thus not recommended though.

I took them in 2010
the hot spring is called underwater seabed hot spring. water source came from under the sea (not sure wat I mean, go google how hot spring or geothermal spring is form)
green island hot spring is definitely different from beitou.

usually during summer time, there is a night ecohabit tour. winter time, not 2 sure.
other than diving n hot spring, u can visit the Green Island Human Rights Memorial Park, old prison(used to hold political criminals, who include lee Ao, Ex vice president Annette Lu n many more)
there r oso many bird view points overseeing the pacific ocean (good for phototaking)
w/o diving, 1 2d1n tour would b enough.
