Here:
In order to make Kaohsiung’s trafficmore convenient, the government of Kaohsiung decides to build the rapid trainsit. This big decision will influence Kaohsiung’s future, for Kaohsiung’s high quality life and promotion of culture and art.
And because that Kaohsiung is so outstanding, so 2009’s world games will be hold in Kaohsiung. This is of course an honorable thing, and also let foreigners know that how beautiful and progressive Kaohsiung is. In order to let foreigners have bright impressions of Kaohsiung, the people and the government works hard to make Kaohsiung better. In my point of view, Kaohsiung keeps improving, so I believe that we can achieve our high dreams of Kaohsiung .

Help with Taiwan Itinerary?

Question by Kelsey: Help with Taiwan Itinerary?
I will arrive in Taiwan Feb 12 and I will be there til the 21st night. My flight arrives in Taipei and I will be leaving from there as well. My trip isn’t long, but I’d like to head south. What places should I definitely go to and what places are a waste of time? I don’t want to see only city.

Feb 13: I was planning on going from Taipei to Taichung, wander around there and stay at the Fuh Chun Hotel. What should I see around here?

From there I was planning on going South to Chiayi. Can anyone suggest cheap hotels there? I heard the scenery is supposed to be nice, and the hot springs.

Maybe Tainan for a night?

Then I wanted to head to Kaohsiung and stay around there til I have to go back to Taipei and catch my flight.

Feb 21: Taipei

Basically along that route, what places would you recommend to visit in the time I have? I’d love to do hiking and see places other than cities, even though that is all i have marked down. Alishan sounds nice, but it seems not practical for the time I have.

Also, if I reversed it and went straight to Kaohsiung, would it be better to make my way up from there to Taipei?

Any help would be appreciated.

Just to let you know they have convenient high speed rail system to get around Taiwan.

I had less than a week and I traveled from Taipei all the way to Kending. So I’ll tell you what I saw

Taipei: You should definitely go to 101. The National Palace Museum is really nice too, but it’ll take awhile to go through all the exhibits. Although you can just choose which one you are interested in. The other main things to see in the city are the CKS Memorial and the SunYatsen Memorial.

Taichung: Sun Moon Lake. There are buses that take you there, but I think it takes 1-2 hours. I just shared a taxi for half the time because we didn’t have much time. There’s a gorgeous lake and its really nice if its not raining. There are buses that drive around the lake, but my friends and I decided to just walk. There is a peacock garden and a large temple. There is also an aboriginal village if you’d like to buy any souvenirs.

Alishan- Ok so we didn’t realize that our hotel was actually on the mountain. But if you do stay at a hotel in Alishan. You have to wake up at 3AM to take a train to the top of the mountain to see the sun rise around 5-6. Then later on you can visit Alishan park. You said you wanted to go hiking. This is a good place. You walk around the park and they have a few points laid out for visitors to see. It’s a nice walk even in the rain. And it only takes a few hours. We then took the Alishan train back into the city. So I don’t think it’ll take too much time.

I don’t know much about any other cities sorry. Hope this helps.

Answer by Overseas E
I checked on the forumosa.com website for a suitable Forum for finding this type information or making a related inquiry. I am not sure if your reference to “road bike” is something with a motor or not.

If your “road bike” is motorized, the Cars and Motorcycles Forum would be suitable. See —
http://forumosa.com/taiwan/viewforum.php?f=75

If your “road bike” is not motorized, I believe the Sports Forum would no doubt be best. See —
http://forumosa.com/taiwan/viewforum.php?f=63

These Forums are all in English. You could post an inquiry there stating that you are using a GIANT TCR road bike, and that you want to know where the velodrome location in Taichung is. You could leave your mobile telephone and email address for interested persons to contact you.

Q&A: Help with taiwan itinerary.?

Question by >_<: Help with taiwan itinerary.?
can anyone please provide me with an itinerary for a 4D/3N tour of taiwan –> which includes tours of taipei, taroko national park, hualien, taichung, and the sun moon lake.

Answer by psc_mar
First, I assume you are an international visitor and will enter Taiwan at Taoyuan Airport. I have to warn you that this journey will be exhausting and the quality may not be good due to too many places and too little time! Second, I assume you will take public transportation instead of driving. In fact, I don’t think it is a good idea for visitors (especially first time visitor) to drive in Taiwan for the journey you proposed. Third, you have to realize that the major highway and railroad system in Taiwan is built along the coast-line of the island. Though there is a road that goes through the mountainous area (beautiful scenery!) to connect Taichung and Hualien, I personally do not recommend use it for your tight schedule (I know lots of people may not agree with me on this one). Reasons: less available transportation means, rare but possible delay due to road condition, perhaps car sick…. Fourth, to use land transportation may be your best choice. Domestic air transportation is available to connect certain points, but you may want to consider how much efficiency it may give you. Last but not the least, Taroko and Sun-Moon-Lake, in my opinion, shall be considered as excursions of the destinations Hualien and Taichung respectively. That is to say, you may have to change hotels every night in three cities (Taichung, Taipei and Hualien… I know, what a hassle!).

Now, it is my plan for you. Day 1: Since your trip involves both the west and east coast of Taiwan, you should go directly to Taichung the first day you arrive in Taiwan. If you can arrive in Taichung by noon, you may be able to join a tour provided by local tour operators to visit Sun-Moon-Lake (always touristy but the easiest). You can purchase the tour at the hotel you stay. If not by noon, take the next morning tour. Either way, you will have time to see what Taichung City can offer. Note: Often, short excursion tours are offered two times a day (morning and afternoon). You may want to check on the internet or with the hotel you are booking.

Day 2: After what you want to do in Taichung, go directly to Hualien because it will be better to spend the last night in Taipei. So, it will be less stressful for you to catch your flight out. The travel time from Taichung to Hualian by train is approximately 5+ hours, and you may have to change train at Taipei train station to go to Hualien. It seems that you can save at least 2 hours to fly from Taipei to Hualien in comparison to train. But again, train services are much more frequent than air and you would have to count the time to go to Taipei domestic airport. Does it really save you time? I will leave this question to you. Check in a hotel in Hualien City (yes, the city, not in Taroko) and relax. Oh, don’t forget to try the famous wanton soup (Yi-Xiang Bien-shi) that the former president Chiang Jr. liked the most. Purchase the tour to Taroko that domestic operators provide to the hotel guests and go to Taroko the second morning. It is not likely you will be able to make it in Hualien by noon. But, if you actually make it, you will have more fun in Taipei.

Day 3: Go to Taipei and see how much time you have before you depart, then, plan your own tour accordingly. I won’t recommend the package city tours for sure. It is very easy to get around in Taipei. Just relax and have fun.

Whatever you decide to do during this trip, enjoy and have a safe journey!

Question by travelmania: Will be in Taiwan in Dec for 16 days , help needed.?
Taipei, Hualien, Jia Yi, Kaoshiung, Tainan, then back to taipei
above is my planned itinenary.Any other better suggestions?

Best answer:

Answer by Jeff L
I think from Taipei to Taichung, Jia Yi, Tainan and Kaohsiung then go to the east coast from Kaohsiung. Go to Taidung Hualien and Yilan then back to Taipei.
This trip is from the north via west coast to the south,then from south to the east coast then back to the north.

Other way is go to the east coast first then go to south,come back via the west.

Both can take train,bus and air.

High speed rail is operating between north to south TW(Taipei to Kaohsiung) only, it doesn’t operate in the east coast.
