This is my initial plan. I am trying to do all these by public transport. We have 6 people. All young ppl. We have 8 days.

Taoyuan airport > Nantou > Hua Lian > Taipei.

But I have since heard that it is hard to travel from Nantou to Hua Lian. So I change it to :

Taoyuan > Tai Chung > Nantou > Taipei.

This seems better right? What do you think guys? Any help is appreciated. ;)

If it's your first time to taiwan, pls don't do such "run road" itinerary.

8days assuming arrival and departure day, you technically only got 7 days.

Day 1 Taichung (TC overnight)
Day 2 SML (SML/CJ overnight)
Day 3 CJ (CJ overnight)
Day 4 HHS + taroko gorge (hualien overnight)
Day 5 hualien (taipei over night)
Day 6-7 Taipei
Day 8 Depart

U see how tight this schedule is? machiam run road

Anyone took bus 160 from Taichung HSR to Fengjia area? Is it advisable to take the bus with few luggage or cab will be a better choice? And if cab, around how much is the cost?

If you have taken HSR on that day, there is a free shuttle bus from taichung hsr to fengjia area. Not sure if they still provide such service thought. Luggage wise no issue for me

Save cost but got six ppl, can be achievable. Get driver ba. Any plan beats ASA HOLIDAY planning.

Cab will be ideal if you have 29”.
InSG, u also dun carry 29” on bus, why wanna do that overseas?
21” then go take bus.

Anyone here has experience watching concert at Taipei Arena? Besides the lockers inside the stadium, any idea where else i can keep my stuff before entering for concert? I just checked Taipei Arena website, they only have 150 lockers lor...

Btw, whats the fast way to travel from Taoyuan Airport to Taipei Arena, other than taxi of course. I am attending a concert next Sat, they are at opening merchandise sales at 2pm but my plane is only touching down at 11am... :(
Anyone can help? I am thinking from Taoyuan airport take airport mrt to Beimen station change songshan line to Taipei arena station. But fastest???
