Hello! I'm having a hard time figuring out our Taipei Trip due to limited time. I will be traveling with my relatives (senior aunt & uncles) from Sept 10-17
We are flying to Taipei on Sept 10th, and we'll be arriving about noon. My relatives would like to visit Taitung (2nights) & Hualien (overnight).
Traveling from Taipei to Taitung by train is pretty long and a waste of time. So here are my options:
Sept 10-12 Taipei
Sept 12 fly to Taitung from Songsan Airport.
Sept 12-14 Taitung
Sept 14 train to Hualien (i dont know which train yet)
Sept 14-15 Overnight in Hualien
Sept 15 train from Hualien to Taipei
Sept 15-17 Taipei
Sept 10 Arrive Taipei, fly to Taitung
Sept 10-13 Taitung
Sept 13 train to Hualien
Sept 13-14 Hualien overnight
Sept 14 Train to Taipei
Sept 14-17 Taipei
What do you think? Any recommendations? As much as possible, since i will be with 3 seniors, I want to avoid switching trains and too much walking.
I checked domestic airlines, only Transasia fly from Hualien to Taipei & Mandarin fly from Taipei to Taitung. Are these the only local airlines available?
As for express train, a lot say that we have to book train tickets in advance, is it really necessary? Cant we just walk in and purchase tickets at the station? Is September a peak season?
Thank you so much! Cant wait to read your comments/recommendations. :)
1 I will be bringing cash $ us and $ aus. Best places to change money ?
2 My flight arrives after midnite and i hope to get train after 6 am to Hualien. Any buses to station in the moiddle of the night?
3. When using the internet at guest houses to enter password for websites are they in Chinese characters or English
4 Anyone want to meet in Taipei on 9th or 10th September ?
Thanks in advance
