Two questions --- 1. How to arrange a 1-day tour to Taroko Gorge from Taipei with round trip train booking? Most travel agents fly to...
...Hualein and return by train. Want to save money and hassle of flying. 2. Any good hotel deals in Taipei? Currently, we have booked a room at Fortune Hyatt at $100/day for 5 nights. Comparable accomodations and transport convenience required.
Special municipality: T'ai-pei
There's a hotel call "Park Taipei Hotel", "No.317, Sec. 1, Fu-Xing S. Rd.,, Taipei, 106", close to the MRT Da-An station, the location is really good and the hotel is really new as well. I checked the price for you through hotels.com and it indicates it's only USD100/per night.
Re:one day round trip by train toTarko Gorge。
You can adopt either (East railway road)in one way price by TZE-CHIANG limited express/NT$441/adult fromTaipei main station takes 3 hrs approx or in CHU-KUANG express/NT$340/Adult takes 4 hrs to Hualein station。
Then,you can take free Taiwan trip bus in Hualein station service center,back and forth 6:50am-6:30pm and Tiansiang terrace as terminal。Scenic Spots as
Yanzikou (Swallow Grotto)
The Chongde Trail
Changchun (Eternal Spring) Shrine
The Jiuqudong tunnel
Have a nice trip!
