Thread: Taiwan Trip in Dec 09

    Default Taiwan Trip in Dec 09

    I'm thinking of going Taiwan somewhere in the last 2 weeks of Dec 09. One of the purpose is of course to shoot landscape. Nothing too expensive, maybe between 6-7 days. Still working out the details.

    Will be great if someone who's have the same interest can join me. PM me

    Air tickets, it seems the only option is either Jetstar or SIA. Thinking departing 22 or 23 Dec and return 29 Dec. (not many dates left to choose from)

    Jetstar is around 800+ and SIA 900+ ($100). I'm inclined to go with SIA for just $100 more.

    Probable places I'm thinking of is Yangmingshan (Taipei), Shilin night market, Hehuan Shan, Taroko National Park (near Hualien), Sun Moon Lake, Alishan. Don't think will visit the Tainan or Kao Shiung area.

    err..think Sun Moon Lake - Alisan already near south liao..

    anyways..go during Feb during Li Chu (early spring)....visit Li shan/He Huanshan (Tai Chung) - snow should have started....yangmingshan (Taipei) for the flowers...ShiLin / Ximenting night market (Taipei)...Ye Lui

    another tip, once you have booked your tickets

    As part of the “2009 Tour Taiwan Year” program, seasonal giveaways / free gifts are given to visitors who purchased air tickets to Taiwan and with hotel booking. The seasonal giveaways / free gifts can be collected at Tourism Bureau’s head office in Taipei city or at the Tourism Bureau’s representative office abroad.

    Air tickets around 900, so I think around 2k total cost for 1 week's stay. Not too sure what shows they have there.
