Taiwan is a very lovable place, for young childrens, teenagers, backpackers or even elderly. Most of the backpackers will do round-island tour, which mean it covers the west and east coast of Taiwan. That usually needs at least a 2weeks time to complete, and it will be a rush one tho. Well, as this trip I only have 6 full days to plan, so I will cover half of the island only. My plan didn't work out exactly as what I plan due to typhoon, but somehow I really enjoy it. I will still shared my original itinerary, the best time to visit Taiwan will be in October, weather just nice that time.

Day 1 - Arrived Taoyuan Int' Airport around 8am, we took a cab to Taipei city as I am travelling with my parents, it's more convenient to take a cab. It cost about TWD1200 to our hostel in Ximending district. You can check out for bus services to Taipei Main Station.


Day 2 - Taipei to Taichung by TRA about 2hours. TRA is half price cheaper than the express bullet train. And an extra information for senior citizen above 65years old, you can enjoy half price on express bullet train but not with TRA.

Day 3 - Taichung to Cingjing by E-go bus, about 90mins journey uphill. Cost TWD500 one way, you can make a booking online for only one way going up and then on that day itself, ask the driver for the return to Taichung if you plan to go back Taichung.

Day 4 - Cingjing to Hualien by a private car, cost TWD5000 for one car, whole journey will takes 8hours. The driver will pick you up from Cingjing hotel and bring you to tour on a few hot spots before dropping you to your hotel in Hualien.

Day 5 - Hualien to Taipei by TRA, takes less than 2 hours I suppose :D Timing is up to you, as the day before has already tour about Hualien, so my plan is to go back Taipei earlier and spend some time in Taipei before going back.

Day 6 - Taipei to Taoyuan Int' Airport. I decided to take a bus from Taipei Main City because I am alone now and its cheaper. 

Stay tuned. I will be back to update more details on my daily routine, hotel stay and costs of everything ^^
