Taiwan Local Tour Agency

by diasplash

Dear fellow travellers!

I am planning my trip to Taiwan on January 2011, and probably engaging local tour group to bring us around. I am wondering if you guys have any recommendation on the local tour group? I've google on some local tour agency's websites which looks pretty fine to me. Have anyone travel with these tour groups, maybe I can have some feedback on their itenerary before I engage on their tour.

Thank you! :D

Contact this Minsu directly. They have a lot of experience with Singaporeans.
How many of you travelling together. You just take the HSR on your own to Chiayi and then make your way up Alishan by bus. Signs are in English and you can do it on your own. OPnce there, the Minsu owner will show you around.
Xin Xin Minsu (欣欣民宿)Their old website is down,will see if I can locate another link. They are also very popular with Singaporeans. Most of these people do not take a deposit from you. However you should call up and cancel in advance if you cannot make it. Many people before you have created a good rep for Singaporeans in SML,Alishan and Hualien with these Minsu owners.

Another nice place to go after Alishan would be Sun Moon Lake. Gui Yue Chun (Laurel Villa) is located very near the lake too. One thing you would realise upon entering is tat the entire place is very clean. The rooms are so clean you feel you're at home! It's really comfy and cosy there! The hosts are perfect too! Price is reasonable too. Here's the website to both the accomodation. Highly reccommended for those who are looking forward to a personal yet non-expensive retreat!

Travel Tips for Taiwan

Kaohsiung is a good place^^

by Sheilalin

Hello, I am Sheila, now I am living in Kaohsiung. You have only three days, actually it is a short time. If you want to relax yourself and do some sightseeing, I think Taroko gorge will be a great choice because of the beautiful scene there. Or you can go Taitung for spring, i think it will give you a comfortable night. By the way, Kaohsiung is a good place for eating food, and you can go Love River as well. By THSRC, actullay you can quickly go back to Taipei as soon as you want, and it merely costs you a little more than one hour.^^ Taiwan is a good place where people are very kind and warm. The food is delicious and the scene is very beautiful.

When there are no clouds ...

by Levente_D

After a windy day people can realise how nice is the surrounding of Taipei. Usually Taipei is very grey because of the polution in the air mixed with clouds and humidity ... that can be really depressing after a while ... but when the wind comes people just start to make pictures about the what they can see ...

Jiu Fen

by lynsy

This is a place more frequented by asian visitors but will recommend westerners to go. Probably becoz pple there do not speak english much but you can either take a day tour from the local agencies. I have seen individual tourists going around with one tour guide, but dont know what is the charges. But if going with the tour group, they will most probably include 1 more tourist spot but lunch or dinner will not be provided.

You can take the mrt to central taipei mrt station where the railway station is located. There are several trains available but the latest one is called Zi Qiang Hao which costs slightly more but is faster than other trains. Jiu Fen is 4 railway stops away and u need to take a cab or local bus up the mountain (12 minutes or more). Jiu Fen is at the mountain area so is cooling and different from the taipei city area. Has lots of small shops, teashops, pottery etc (a bit commercialised). Taxi trip is NT$150 to go up and NT$150 to come down. But for NT$600, the taxi driver can take you to scenic areas around the mountain including to their main activity area and down the mountain. Will recommend spending half a day there. The taxi driver we used gave us a name card. Taxi tours telephone no. is 0936-457-183 . For a stay at Jiu Fen can call 0937-867-743 or 0916-671-044 (local nos.). Information is correct as at Jun 04.

"Sunrise in Ali Shan"

Ali Shan is a famous mountain in Taiwan. It has a unique "litlle train" but the concept of moving a train up steep slopes is very dangerous. In order to view sunrise from mountains range or rather in the midst of clouds, you have to be at the foot of the mountain at about 5 am, take the train up to the summit and wait :) Remember to eat the piping hot spring onion pancake there...sedap!!


This is a change from the mountains. Taipei is surrounded by mountain ranges and in order to reach the sea, you had to tunnel through them :) Strong gust of wind make you gasp. "Try it during typhoon season"--A Tip reserved for enemies :P This oversees the ocean and the waves just keep roaring in. A very nice experience. The sculpture depicts how fishermen there fight for a living especially during typhoon season.

"Mini World"

This is my favourite place. It make me feel "BIG". This place houses the world :) Mini world as its name speaks for itself...shows the world famous attractions and architecture.

"Life, travel and a wife"

Over the last five years of my wife Taiwan has been my playground, my home, my new families home and the place I miss the most.

I married a Taiwanese girl and found out I knew the country better that her. Marrying in Taiwan for a Canadian is very easy.


I personaly have lived in Taipei city, but I lived over the Dan Shui River (100 meters from Taipei). Taipei is a great city. Highlights or favorite spots of mine are:
Ximen Ding
ShiLin Yeshi (night market) -not as good as it once was
BanQiao has a park along the Danshui that most of my Taipeinese friends didn't know about... very nice
Taipei Zoo - Awsome and humain

"Ali Shan"

I was there in November and it had all these beautiful Autum colors in the trees and vegitation. Great walks, hikes, pathways throughout the area.
