Taichung (near Fengjia market) to Cingjing accom in end Nov

We are three adults & one 5yo child. We can't read mandarin but can speak basic mandarin/hokkien.

We noticed that most ppl hire a driver to travel from Taichung to Cingjing. What is the rate for such service? Any recommendation?

Besides hiring a private driver, is there any other way to travel from Taichung to Cingjing? What is the best / convenient public transportation to use?

It is possible to travel from Taichung to CingJing by bus and it is easy. There is a regular bus service between Puli and CingJing and regular services between Taichung and Puli. I don't know whether it is possible to get a bus that goes all the way to Puli from Taichung. Puli bus station is a busy station. None of the ticket sellers can speak English. However, if you can can speak Mandarin then you should be able to speak to them. Catching the right bus is not a problem because bus destinations are shown in English. However, buying a ticket can be an issue. However, if you are using an EasyCard you will be OK because you won't need to buy a ticket.

So it means i will have to take a bus from Taichung to Puli, and then from Puli to Cingjing? Where will the bus stop in Cingjing?

Do I buy my ticket from Taichung all the way to Cingjing in Taichung? Or I have to buy two separate tickets, one time in Taichung and one time in Puli?

Yes

There are a number of bus stops there. It is better to ask your accommodation for the nearest bus stop.

>>Do I buy my ticket from Taichung all the way to Cingjing in Taichung? Or I have to buy two separate tickets, one time in Taichung and one time in Puli?

You do not need to purchase the ticket in advance. You can simply pay the fare on the buses using cash or Easy Card. For the transfer, you need to take the order ticket at the Service Center of Nan Tou Bus in Taichung Gancheng Bus Station or the HSR Taichung Station. Here is the schedule that can offer the instant transfer.

Thanks for the reply.

Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I don't need to purchase any tickets in advance. On that day, I will go to Taichung Gancheng Bus Station and look for the bus going to Puli. I can pay using cash or EasyCard on the bus itself. Also, I need to take the order ticket at the Service Center of Nan Tou Bus in Taichung.

In Puli station, I will take that order ticket, and take the bus towards Cingjing. Also, no advance ticket required as I can pay using cash or EasyCard on the bus.
