I would like to go to many different parts of Taiwan but I've already made reservation with Caesar Park Hotel at Taipei.
I'm planning my itinerary now, kindly help to answer following queries:

1) Would it be possible for me to make it in time to travel back to Taipei Main Station if I've plans to go other parts outside Taipei?

2) I'm interested to go for a day trip to Sun Moon Lake, what are the mode of transport from Taipei Main Station?

3) What is the different between Bullet train & normal railway train...?

4) What is the estimated time duration to travel from one Metro Station to another Metro Station?

5) What are the places of interests would you recommend besides Wulai, Jioufen,Danshuei?

Thank you.

thanks for your prompt response.

1) If I decide to extend one more night and is there any nice scenery place near to Taoyuan Airport?

2) Any recommendation for accomodation for resorts or Ming Shu at Taoyuan?

3) Do you think its a good choice to extend the last night at Hot Spring resorts? Any recommendation of hot spring resorts where I could travel to airport easily?

Thank you.

I've extended another day and thought of staying one night at Sun Moon Lake.

1) Would it be advisable to travel from Sun Moon Lake to airport directly?

2) How far is the journey from Sun Moon Lake Hotel to Taoyuan Airport?

Thank you for your patience and really appreciate your fast response. ^o^

Thanks for info. Since its not realistic to go Sun Moon Lake on last day.
Please advise whether which itinerary would be more workable:

1) How to go to "Window On China Theme Park" from Taipei Main Station? If I'm planning to stay one night at "Beautiful Pension homestay". Is the place near to Taoyuan airport? Any other places of interest and eatery places nearby? Convenient to travel to Taoyuan airport?

2) From Taipei Main Station how to go to DaShi old street? THen go to Cihu (The Culture Resort of the Jiang). Stay at Fu-yam tourist home. Following day, go to Mt. Lala natural protection zone(the divine trees). THen go to Taoyuan airport?

Would it be difficult to arrange for transport to airport from Mt. Lala?

Thank you so much for your advice. :)

Hi, I wonder if you have any contacts for taxi drivers in Taipei, Taichung and Hualien.

I am wondering how much it will cost if I hire a taxi to take me from Taichung to sun moon lake, and then from cing jing farm via taroko to hualien.

Hi, I'm planning a trip to Taipei this December, for 7D6N. I wonder if it is too long to just stay within Taipei. If we wish to go outside of Taipei, what are the locations we can go to and return to Taipei within the day?

We wil be staying at a hotel in Ximending throughout the entire trip.   I wonder what is a good itinerary. Thank you!
