Not sure yet eh. Need do some research. I heard got buses right? Hahaha

From cingjing take E-Go bus to Taipei 600ntd per pax, around 12 - 1pm reach Taipei main station at 5pm. Break at puli winery.
You can ask minsu to book for you when you are there. In march only less than 10 pax in a coach.
Can consider if you are doing this route or use HSR to Taipei.

I prefer this, at least you have enough time for both SML and CJ

Maybe it's just me...i find SML too touristy and boring. Esp with all the AT group tour :o

I went just 玄奘寺 via 青龙山步道 & 伊達邵. Love 青龙山步道

I went 文武廟, take ferry, 九族文化村 and walk around sml, need about a full day.
I agree, too many tourists but every where is the same, unless you go non normal route.

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if 1000 SGD is enough for a week for 2 pax in Taipei only?

edit : 1000 SGD after flight and hotel

I 2 person 8 days spend $1500+ in tw, so if you are shopper, bring extra S$, can change later if you not enough to spend.

foodie might be abit, and we plan to visit attractions like maokong and to taichung.

forgot to mention that SGD 1000 is our allowance exclusive of hotel and flight.

Is that enough?

Including transport to and from Taichung? In that case I am afraid it won't be enough

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!

You can consider the following:

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

Cingjing can finish within Day 1 or at most Day 1 + Day 2 morning. There are not much attractions in Cingjing to stay 2 nights.

Nantou/SML attractions are mainly 日月潭, 文武廟, 九族文化村, 溪頭 妖怪村 (nothing much unless you really got no places to go), 天空之橋 (see sunset) and maybe 紙教堂. There are some hiking places if you are interested.

You can decide if you want to spend more time in Nantou/SML, Taichung or Taipei to plan your stay accordingly.

I think it is easily for TC > Taipei as compared to CJ > Taipei.

No it doesnt actually. Are HSR trains that expensive? How much should we bring then?

HSR ticket from Taipei to Taichung is TWD700. if you book early enough, there is 20% discount. Can book online and there is also a mobile app where you can load your ticket onto your phone and hence no need to collect the physical ticket in Taiwan.

Bcos I wanted to end my trip at Taipei, from there go airport easier instead of going from the opposite way round and end in hualien.
