A cruise excursion

by nova4travel Online Now Mar 20, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Our ship stops in Keelung for a day. I am considering the following itinerary: Longshan Temple in Taipei and then the National Palace Museum (NPM) for at least 2 hours. Then a beach town called Danshui or Tansui (modern). There is a seaside temple there that I would like to see. Does this make sense? Taxi or train/MRT? How much for taxi?

    Keelung is out of the city and therefore there is no MRT Line service this route. What you can do is take the bus 1062 (ask the local where the bus stop) from Keelung to Taipei Main Station, Then hop in the Red Line to Danshui. Before Danshui there is a temple called Guangdu Temple. For the National Palace Museum, you have to stop at Shihlin. Outside the station you can hop on the free shuttle bus to the NPM. Please be advised that you have to check the closing time at National Palace Museum. For the Longshan Temple just take the Red Line back to Taipei Main Station and change to Blue Line (heading Yongming Station). Finally take your bus 1062 at Taipei Main Station back to Keelung.

    One day for your plan would be a little rush. You would spend lots of time on transportation.

    Keelung to Taipei Main Station about 40 minutes, Taipei Main Station to Danshui also 40 minutes.

    Suggest you choose two stops will be better. Stop at Shihlin to NPM, then go to Danshui.
    Or you could just stop at Guangdu, rent a bike to Danshui. The secse from Guangdu to Danshui is very beautiful. You can return the bike in Danshui, just confrim this with the boss.
    Then you can take MRT to Taipei Main Station then Keelung.

    Have a nice trip.
