thanks!!

was thinking if i should stay near 夜市 so can eat late at night :s13::s13:

I went 大東 & 花園; regret not having a bigger stomach.

I stay near the train station (like 5-10min walk away) and cab to the night market on both days. Will say 大東 is the best night market ever. 花園 is good too but the crowd will put u off abit.

Pls go jiak 富盛号碗粿 in the morning. Must order the 魚羹 as well

Stay near 夜市 is good, you can go out to eat anytime or how late you want, don't need to worry take bus/ taxi.
I stay very near fengjia 夜市, only 2 mins walking distance yet away from noise.

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
Thanks a lot for your advice. Appreciate it. It seems like I am going to skip Hualian as it seems out of the way. So the places I will hit would be
Tai Chung > SML > CJ> Taipei.

Day 1: Taoyuan Airport (Noon arrive) > Taichung (TC overnight)
Day 2: TC ( TC overnight)
Day 3: TC > SML (SML overnight)
Day 4: SML > CJ (CJ overnight)
Day 5: CJ (CJ overnight)
Day 6: CJ > Taipei ( Taipei overnight)
Day 7: Taipei
Day 8: Taipei > Airport(Evening)

How does this look? Too boring? Anything else to do in CJ /SML area? Thanks for any feedback!

Still sounds like a run road trip. Did slight amendments in red. For day3 can choose either SML or CJ overnight. SML accom should be cheaper than CJ. Day 5 can leave CJ in the afternoon like 2-3pm, so u can have 1 extra day in tpe.

1. If day 3 stay CJ then SML only got half a day to explore. Enough time?
2. Is there anything to do around CJ area other than CJ itself?
3. Are there buses between these few destinations? We have 6 ppl.

1. Depends on what you want to do at SML and if you going to 九族文化村. I rmb reaching SML at 9+(frm tc) and leaving at 3+(for cj).

2. Green Green grassland + little swiss + sunrise/sunset tour will be enough to fill up your day at cj.

3. There is bus from tc to sml (direct).
SML to CJ need to transfer at puli (pls note timing, very very important!).
At CJ public bus is close to non existance. Suggest to stay near little swiss or find minsu that is willing to provide transport foc. Cab is rather rare. Walking is the way to go. :o

CJ itself take almost full day to complete all attractions and not in the hurry.
As incredible.piggie, look for minsu that can provide transport or near to attraction.
