I use google maps on my iPhone for public transport guidance. Not easy to use in advance, but works great when I am in one spot, and want to go to another spot.

Public buses do go to Xitou.

the places you want to go on the first day are really far from taichung city centre previously I checked it is not easy to take public bus there. to xitou there is a taiwan shuttle bus about an hour journey. the timetable can be checked online

You can check out the Nantou bus company which has shuttle buses from Gancheng station to Xitou.

I think Taichung Train Station is a good starting point to go anywhere.

Like if you want to go to 彩虹眷村 , you can take the 仁友客運 number 40 on 綠川東station which is nearby

Taichung Train Station , make sure this bus is way to 中台新村 , and then drop the bus on 嶺東三station then you can walk to the 彩虹眷村 , you can find 仁友客運's station by google map or tell the taxi driver , but this way to go to 彩虹眷村 may cost a lot of time , that's why Taichung needs the MRT!!!!

薰衣草森林 , 新社古堡 , 紙箱王創意園區 I think they are the far place that if you don't drive by yourself it will be hard to reach or you can take the taxi to there , you can call 55688 台灣大車隊 that I think is a good taxi company. Otherwise , these place are all in 新社 so I recommend you can go to 又見一炊煙 it is a good place to enjoy afternoon tea and have good view , you can brows this website :

杉林溪

溪頭森林遊樂區

溪頭妖怪村

竹山天梯

大安竹海

These places are all in Nantou , if you can live in the 杉林溪森林生態渡假園區 Hotel may be the better way to get colser to the big nature. Or forget it , it's only my recommendation.

This website can help you go to 杉林溪 from the Taichung Train Station :
