Here’s my Nov 12 Taiwan Itinerary.
For this Taiwan Nov 12 trip, I had engaged a driver for 6 days – to cover Miaoli, Taichung, Cingjing (including photography), Fushoushan for autumn leaves and Yilan. After that, a few days in Taipei – free & easy via mrt.
Why we engaged a driver ? Having a driver will be more hassle free for our trip and we can cover more places within a day, and also do not need to waste time to wait and travel via public transportation.
Finding a driver for 4 person is easier and can fit in Toyota Wish. For 5 adults with 5 luggages, we need a bigger car, a 9 seater van. The cost of a bigger car will be more ex too.
Finally, through the recommendation of my Yilan minsu (Beautiful Ilan, click here to see my post), we found a driver, Mr Zhu for our 6 days trip. Mr Zhu was a nice and accomodating person. We all had a good trip with him. He would take the intiative to explain some attractions and also helped us to take group photo.
Here’s a short travelogue of my Taiwan itinerary Nov 12 trip . If you need to know any specific attractions, let me know.
Normally, November wasn’t a raining season. However, there was no rain for the past 2 months. We had rainy days for most of our trip, esp day 2 & 3. Due to the rain, my itinerary was disrupted and some of my planned attractions need to be skipped. Also note that it would be dark about 5pm plus.
Our trip all started when we saw that Scoots was flying to Taipei and there was a fare promotion. We managed to get some cheap tickets (about $350).
