Taichung HSR to Sun Moon Lake - Nantou Bus

Hi everyone..

I'm confused by the Nantou bus schedule from Taichung HSR to SML www.ntbus.com.tw/032.htm

Does anyone know whether the schedule highlighted in RED is only available during the summer holidays "7月1日~8月31日暑假期間加班時刻表" ?

Also, does it make much difference if we stay go to SML before Cing Jing Farm or vice versa (in terms of transport / time)?

Thanks for your info hkg2009hkg. I forgot to note that my trip is in October which falls outside current summer holiday season. A local is helping me find out for me so I'm waiting for his reply.

When you paid for the bus fare, did you need to have the exact change?

Hi

If I read the statement from the webpage, those schedules highlighted in red are only available from 1st July - 31st Aug as these are added bus schedules.

You need to pay exact change for the bus fares as you need to drop the fares into a box as you board the bus.

Hope the above helps

Hi guys,

Got a question. If I'm following the Ren You bus from Taichung Railway Station to SML, do I alight at the Aborginal Cultural Village if I would like to take the Cable Car?

The 1.87 km long cable car ropeway links Formosan Aborigine Cultural Village and Sun Moon Lake. Operation Hours: 10:30AM~4PM weekdays, 10:30AM~5PM weekends. It takes 7-10 minutes to travel between the two scenic sites.

Thanks for the information, Taiwan DIY.

Would probably drop by at the Formosa Cultural Village and take a cable car ride to SML. Had done the cruising of SML before and would like to try a different experience.
