transportation from taipei other places?

Question by hy: transportation from taipei other places?
Hello, I am visiting TW for 6 days.
I will spend the first 3 days in Taipei and then go to Sun Moon Lake (and Ali Mounntain if I still have time).
Here’ s my question: how do I get there? I guess I will take a train. Which one should I take? How much (estimate) will it cost me? Is it a few hours’ trip? Do I have to go to TaiChung first, and then transfer to Sun Moon Lake? I can’t find anything interesting in TaiChung. Is it feasible to spend 1.5 day visiting Sun Moon Lake and another 1.5 day visiting Ali Mountain?
Yes, I know what to do in Taipei. CKS Memorial Hall, National Palace Museum, Shilin Night Market, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall,Rao He Street Night Market,
Taipei 101.
BTW, is it expensive to have a lunch or dinner in Taipei 101?
Thank you in advance.

Hi,

Lunch at 101-It depends whether you want to go to one of the restaurants or the excellent food court in the basement.
It is not over priced as there is a lot of competiton nearby in the Xinyi District.

To SML from Taipei: Take the Bus, It not bad and the bus is really comfortable:

Greenbus has hourly departures. Taipei-SML round-trip costs TWD830.

If you dont have a place to stay at SML: Laurel Villa is highly recommended by forumers:

From SML, you have to get to Puli, then Puli to Taichung, then Taichung to Chiayi, Then Train or bus it up to Alishan.

there are many airport buses from which you can choose from depending on where in taipei you want to get off. they cost about NTD100-NTD150 (about USD3-4) per person. their stations are located just outside the airport exits. i heard that this hotel has free airport shuttle service:

MRT would be best for me. At least you can see the station where you are headed. If still unsure, bring a map and use hand signals.

Younger generations in the city usually can understand English.

Don’t worry, you will survive.
