Miaokou to Jiufen at night?  (4 Answers)

Hello! I'll be staying one night at Jiufen and was hoping to visit Miaokou Night Market while I'm staying at Jiufen. Would like to enquire if there is a direct bus from Miaokou heading to Jiufen and what time would the last bus be?

If not, is there any way to get back to Jiufen from Miaokou Night Market after 9pm?

Sightseeing Taiper, Taitung & Hualien  (3 Answers)

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:

Option 1
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

Option 2:
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. :)

Cheers!

And if so, would anyone know where they can be bought? I have search on the internet for weeks now, but came up empty handed. Maybe they go by (yet) another name?

Cigarettes under 18? :)  (4 Answers)

Is it possible to buy cigarettes under 18 years old? Are there some stores that would "secretly" sell them to minors? I live in a country where I'm at legal age of smoking and I like to smoke from time to time, and I'm gonna spend 2 months in Taipei so it would be useful to know if it's possible to buy them ;) or maybe do you know if it's possible to carry them in my luggage? Won't i have any problems with transporting two packs with me even if I'm not 18?

Thanks :) and please don't tell me to stop smoking, I smoke very rarely, a pack would last me for a month ;)

Taipei 4D3N Itinerary for first-timer - Suggestions?  (5 Answers)

Hi, guys! Please help me out in my itinerary... I'm going to TW for the first time in a few weeks, and I'd like to cover most of the attractions in the city and a bit further out in 4D3N. My base will be in Ximending.

  • Day 1 - Urban Highlight**

Taoyuan International Airport early morning arrival Taipei HSR to Taipei Main Station Ximen Station - hotel drop-off luggage Tian Wai Tian Mala Hotpot lunch Ximen Red House Taipei 101 - shops & observatory Din Tai Fung dinner Ximending

  • Day 2 - Nature Trip**

Yangmingshan National Park Beitou Hot Springs Danshui Fisherman's Wharf & Lover's Bridge Danshui Night Market Shilin Night Market

  • Day 3 - Historic and Cultural**

Presidential Office Building (how to get here from Ximen Station?) pass by 2/28 Peace Park Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall; National Theater & National Concert Hall Dongmen Station - Yongkang Street Beef Noodle
Zhongxiao Fuxing station shopping district (Sogo, Breeze)
Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall
Taipei City Hall / Xinyi district malls (Bellavita, Mitsukoshi)
Houshanpi Station - Raohe Night Market

  • Day 4 (Day Trip? Still up for draft)**

hotel checkout 10:30am

suggested trip - Yehliu Geopark + Jiufen Old Town? (how long should this take? will it be too taxing?)

ETA 10PM Ximending last look, take luggage from Hotel
en route to Airport (red eye flight)

---

Why the itinerary is as such:
I'm more of a city gal, so malls and modern structures are always a draw. Looking forward to Taipei 101 the most!
Going to Yangmingshan hoping to see autumn foliage! And it's near to Beitou (are the hot springs really that HOT?) Wasn't keen on Danshui intitially but it's also nearby so might as well.
Ticking the historical landmarks just because. CKS would probably be the highlight. Not into temples so left them out.
Going to night markets not so much for the food (not that adventurous) but for the experience. I might surprise myself.

Maybe you have other places to suggest in addition to the ones above? (and restaurants too!)
Thanks in advance!!!
