Just wanted to thank everyone for their help. We had a fantastic time in Taiwan. It was really cold, a few days the temp dipped to 6deg!
We engaged Mr Lu for our hualian trip and it was fantastic. Highly recommended! I loved the bento that he brought us to buy for our lunch. Not to mention the onion pancake as well! Super duper yummy! Because it was really cold, he would wrap the bentos in another layer of newspaper so that it will still remain warm. Due to some circumstances, we changed our hualian overnight trip to a day trip instead. However, we are still able to play fireworks at the beach just before heading back to the train station at 7pm. This can only be done if you have sacrificed Baiyang Bu Dao, which in this case our group did that because of the cold weather. We agreed that we don’t want to be wet and cold on the trip! The wind was really strong in hualian. We felt that it was much colder than Taipei, though the temp there was alil higher, according to Mr Lu. Still, we had a really enjoyable time with Mr Lu and will definitely hire him back again for our next trip! He was also mentioning that his appointments are on a first come first served basis, which is why some people manage to get him to bring them around while some get his tudi. He did emphasize that he will explain to his tudi what to do and where to bring, so that the trip would be like him bringing you around. However, it is still best if you can change your trip to another date when he is free in order to get his service.
Okay. That's about all I have to say. Hope that those going to TW will enjoy their trip as much as we did! :D
