2. Re: Which stop from Taichung to CingJing via bus

Hi AliceMei,

Which stop is better for you to hop on the transport to Ching Jing will very much depend on where are you coming from.

1. If you are going to Taichung directly from elsewhere (eg. Taipei) via HSR on the same day, then taking the transport from 台中高铁乌日站 should be suitable.

2. Else if you decide to spend a night at Taichung before going up to Ching Jing the next day, you might want to consider 台中统联客运中港转运站 as there aren't many accomodation options near Taichung HSR. So staying around Taichung TRA will be a good idea.

Zaw-Jung Business Hotel is a popular choice among TA forumers.

Hope it helps.

If you're going direct from Taipei, might want to consider this direct bus:

This is the same company which also operates the Taipei-Wuling bus which I had used recently. For me, I prefer a direct bus, it saves the hassle of changing transport.

Hi, I am very confused about the bus options from Taichung to Cingjing.

Does it mean that if I set off from Taichung TRA, I can hop onto a direct bus from Taichung TRA to Cingjing? What exactly is the bus called ?

We have 3 topo kings traveling and the tendency is the wrong bus / wrong bus stop...
