We have a great time in Taiwan and truly enjoy ourselves. The driver was excellent and a good driver. He even surprised my wife with a birthday cake on the day(has casually mentioned my wife birthday was on the 7 April). We all had a small celebration that night. The whole group got along very well with him.
Taichung’s hotel was good and near the night market. The minsu in Hualien was great. The minsu’s owners were very friendly and had a great time setting some fireworks that night. Yilan’s minsu had a different theme for each rooms. My wife and I had the “Hello Kitty” theme room.. However, the minsu at Cingjing was not so convenient as we needs to drag our luggage up several staircase(especially for the women). Taipei’s hotel location is great, just one road across to Ximenting.
Enjoyed all the places we visited, especially the different night markets, the wet land, rainbow village, taroko gorge, and shifen(the sky laterns).
We had a several small change of the plans, along the way we also visited the strawberry farm and a museum displaying “Öld Taiwan”. Had a great time there.
Sorry, unable to provide photos as my friends do not wish to do so.
