Pls advise us on:

1) The Sequence, which we should go 1st or wat else we shouldnt miss out, n which ones isnt such a good idea!

2) Important transfers/transportations to note.

(If possible as detailed as possible, hmm.. i've no idea how e sys works)

- The ones that we need to book in advance.

- The ones that ppl usually find difficulties in figuring out. hah..

3) Pls advise us on which accomodation is nearer/"on track"/

Hi SgExplorer,

(1) National Palace Museum is a "must see" for most people. Chang Kai Shek's Memorial Hall is also worth visiting.

(2) I just spent 3 days in Hualien. It's wise to hire a driver for the Tarako Gorge (cost = NT3000 for the day). We ended up using her for 3 days and saw a lot. Worth considering.

(We enjoyed Artist's gallery, swimming in the creek, coastal ride, seafood feast, bike ride in Tung Hwa uni, trekking in Tarako Gorge, etc etc).

White water rafting? Ocean Park? Personally preference I guess.

We stayed with Fu Yuan B&B for one night and would recommend it. Check out their website www.rosestone.com

ocean park is a theme park for kiddie, so unless u have children, it's probably Ok to skip it.Depending on how many days u have in HL, there's the coastal route all th way to Taidung that's worth doing.
