We spent 9 days venturing in Taiwan last winter. 9 days certainly weren't enough, as we only covered Taipei, Taipei County, Keelung, and Taroko Gorge in Hualien County, which is a national park famous for its tall cliffs and marble canyon. (Then when it comes to vacation, it's always never enough! :))

Taipei, the capital and the largest city in Taiwan, is a cosmopolitan with well-blended Chinese and western culture. Great varieties and interesting food, especially those in the night markets. Getting around is easy too within the city, as the MRT can take you to most tourist spots.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:easy to get to tourist attractions by MRT (subway), great inexpensive street food, friendly ppl

    From Taipei, what station do I take and which bus do we transfer onto to get to Yeliu. Or do we just take the Long distance bus all the way there?

    It looks like I missed a lot! I agree, the 7th month of the Chinese year is the best time to visit temples... great photos! I hope to get to Yangmingshan or Wulai someday!

    Sounds like you love to be out walking! We are restricted to places that take stroller wheels for a few years yet.
