  • genie_jean, there's lots of good scenery in SML if you avoid touristy places. The top of Ci En Pagoda is also a good place to see an aerial view of SML. Do get a guide as there's a lot if stories abt each place.

    For Citin, there's no safe. Best is to book direct from their website.

      • shan,

        I think you will run into problems on Day 5. Don't think you can do Theme Park, SML and Fengjia on the same day. I don't know where is your theme park. But to and fro SML from Taichung is 3.5 hours.

        Have fun there!


        • Hi Fleurs

          May I know which guide u get in Taichung and how much he charge...** thinking to staying in taichung or stay near minshu at SML?

          May I know which are the places to visit in taichung other than SML?

          Thank you


          • Hi All

            Thinking to visit SHi fen when going to Jiufen, Yehliu, and kee lung...may i know how to go n ***** possible within a day .

            May i know the usual route for going to Yehliu, JIufen, Jinguashi ...? tio go jiufen first or yehliu



            • ahjo77, it's Yeliu-Jinguashi-Jiufen-Keelung NM. Don't think you can fit in Shifen unless you get a cabbie tour.

              For me I didn't tour around Taichung coz I was enjoying myself in Love Motel & Fengjia NM. I headed to SML the next day. I stayed in Laurel Villa in SML. It was lovely. Lost my cabbie's contact so I can't help.


              • any idea is The Face Shop products cheaper than S'pore??

                            Just to confirm again, from Taipei Main Station to Jiufen, how long does it takes?
                            For the bus journey from Jiu fen back to Taipei, will it take long?
