Self trip to taipei 6D5N on 22-27/3/13

Hi, there is some question that i would like ask over here,

Well, if i were to take a cab down from TAOYUAN airport to TAIPEI main station how much would it be? or is there other better way or transport that i could take?

Do i need to bring cold suits or rather jackets over to taipei during end march period?

Is that true that i can only get to see cherry blossom on the mountain area? and what is the timing for the train to start and ends at what time?

Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

Planning a trip for my boy (age 4) together with my wife and myself. Basically, I am not familiar with Taiwan at all. Wil be my 1st trip - my colleagues keep telling me to go DIY and not join a tour. I am a bit concern as bring a toddler alone is not too easy and we dont like to be rush or keeping to schedule as for i am on vacation! haha

There's basically I planning for a 7 day trip

a) Do a farm stay (2-3 days)

b) some nice place in between (1-2 days)

c) Final stop in taipei for rest and shopping before heading home....

The item a & b - do not have to be ard Taipei (but need to advise how to get there ) ....thank you everyone

Hi!

In response to (A), I guess Cingjing should be a nice place for your family. Since you are traveling with a toddler, I would suggest getting a cab up to CingJing from Taichung. The price from Taichung should be around $1600NT. Else you would have to catch the bus up to Cingjing which only operates at 2 timing.

Thereafter you can consider staying in taichung if you want to visit Feng Jia Night Market to shop, or if you want to visit more scenery places, you can consider miaoli or hualien!

If it is Ur first trip, try to limit to Taipei & Surrounding. Get to know how things work & U can always explore the other county in ur Next trip, cos Once U go Taiwan, U will want to go again. :D

And Taipei is easy to get around using Both the MRT & Buses.

If U need to know how to get to places like Jiufen, Yehliu Geopark etc. Just Type How to go Jiufen in the Taiwan Forum Search Box - Which is below the Find Hotels Button.

Here's some Link for U to check:

Cityinn Hotel - taipei station branch 2 & 3 (Family Room are Nicer)

CityInn Hotel Plus XiMenDing

WestGate Hotel

Hi,

Assuming you are in S'pore you can contact Green Island Tour and they can tailor-made the holiday for you. My experience with them in December was very good and if just the 3 of you they can arrange for a taxi tour guide.

Look for Cindy Teng.
