taichung-cingjing-SML-hualien-taipei

I need advise for my taichung-cingjing-SML-hualien-taipei

trip

I intend to stay in taichung 2 nights

proceed to Cingjing (maybe stay 1 night)

proceed to sun moon lake (maybe stay 1 night)

proceed to Hualien, Taroko Gorge (stay 2 nights)

procced to taipei

Can anyone share with me if there is a better plan?

i am not sure if any taxi would ferry us 1 point to 1 point

or should i just skip staying the nights in cingjing and SML and do a round trip like

Taichung (2 nights)

proceed to Cingjing , SML and end in Hualien same day

This is simple map of Taiwan, Cingjing is somewhere midpoint of Taichung and Hualien. So should change the sequence, SML 1st then Cingjing.

I would spend a night each at Cingjing and SML so that it is not so rush.

Typically the cab ride from Cingjing to Hualien would cover tour of Taroko Gorge.

I visited Cingjing and Taroko Gorge in separate trips so have not travelled this route.

There are many forumers who have done that, thru the central mountain. Some parts are winding. You can get a list of cabbies by searching in Taiwan forum for 'Hualien driver', 'Hualien cabbie', 'Cingjing driver' or 'Cingjing cabbie'.

Alternative is to get to Hualien via Taipei.

It is about 4 hrs car drive between Cingjing and Hualien through the Central Mountains. Usually if you start your journey around 9 am, you will reach around 4~5 pm depending on traffic, road conditions and how long you spend sightseeing along the route, lunch and refreshment / toilet breaks.
