I have read your plan, got some places I don't think so you able to visit just for 1 day.
First, you have 10 days and you need to ask what are the main places that you must go, and what are the places that are second important. You also must know, you go to Taiwan is for shopping or side seeing?:-$
Day 1 (Fri): 桃园机场 - 桃园市/中坜市 （夜宿中坜）
Day 2 (Sat): 桃园市/中坜市 - 内湾 - 新竹市 - 台中市（夜宿台中市） ---- Never visit before so maybe next time after you back from Taiwan, you can share with me whether places fun or not, but so went to Taiwan 3 times, I never visit 桃园市, dun think so 桃园市 got any interesting place to visit except old street, but forgot the name already.
FYI - you can select the main night market to visit coz in Taiwan those night market more or less is same, only few night market are worth to go.
Day 3 (Sun): 台中 - 南投（夜宿日月潭）
You can stay in this hotel

By the time you reach 南投 should be late afternoon or evening, you can’t even enjoy the view there. Maybe you can take ship on next morning, and then go another place? Then it will waste your time go to 南投（日月潭） coz you do not have time to enjoy the beauty of （日月潭）.
In 南投, not only （日月潭） famous, you can also visit
九族文化村 which can allow you to spend one whole day in this area. You also can walk their mountain and view the Sun Moon Lake (日月潭) from the top of mountain. Coz nothing much you can do at night (most shop close at 9pm), normally will go to bed very early, then wake up early on next morning around 4am, go walk " Mao Rao San (mountain)" and reach top at 6.30 to 7 am. You will enjoy it a lot, but also will take lot time to walk up.
Day 4 (Mon): 南投 - 嘉义阿里山（夜宿奋起湖民宿）
Ok come to day 4, big issue here. In 阿里山 only 2 time slot Alishan train go up 阿里山 9am and 12pm (I think so). From nantou go to Alishan take quite a long time to reach, unless you are booking cab then will be faster.
In early morning, from nantou go to Taichung (台中) train station also need 2 hrs bus journey,
From taichung (台中) go to 嘉仪 train station need another 1 hrs plus. By the time you reach there sure after 12pm. One thing you need to remember, from 嘉仪 train station goes to 阿里山 Mountain need at least 3 hrs train or bus or van journey.
Assume when you reach Alishan already 4pm?? You can't do anything at all. You can't be going Alishan just to enjoy sun rise (ard 4 to 5am) on next day right? You should also try to walk their forest and enjoy the view.
If you walk their forest, you need at least 4 to 8 hrs to walk, no joke... is true very very big. Walk until Ur leg can break... hahaha.....
Your plan can be done, but is just only touch and go and very rush.... you can't even enjoy the natural forest. From the places that you have selected, I know your main target will be natural location right? You shd enjoy the quality of stay in Taiwan rather than quantity of how many locations you have visit in Taiwan right? :) :-$:-$
Day 5 (Tues): 嘉仪阿里山 - 高雄 （夜宿高雄）
Day 6 (Wed): 高雄 - 垦丁 (夜宿高雄)
You can stay in 垦丁 at night if you have more budgets. Then you no need to rush back. Distance between高雄 - 垦丁 also need few hours
Day 7 (Thurs): 高雄 - 台北 （夜宿台北）
Day 8 (Fri): 西门町 - 北投 - 阳明山 - 淡水老街 - 野柳风景区 - 士林夜市 - 西门町
hehehe your day 8 schedule super pack hehehe, unless all of you are super girl hehehe if not you can't even visit half of the place above.
Better plan should be:-
阳明山 (hot spring or go to Gu Gong Museum -> 北投 (only hot spring) -> 淡水老街 ( Can take boat go to Yu ren ma tou ") - Consider 1 day journey.
As for野柳风景, from Taipei go to 野柳风景 (journey ard 1hr) you need to take bus from Taipei go to 野柳风景 (if you need more information, you can ask me I can tell you where to take bus), if you not familiar, you need to find station... quite time consuming. Perhaps need at least 3 hrs to reach 野柳风景.
You can walk 野柳风景 at least 2 to 3 hrs.
Normally how ppl plan is:-
野柳风景--> 九份 --> 基隆 night market(super crowed)
But if you plan as above also very pack and rush. But since you have 4 ppls, you can book a cab to fetch you from hotel and bring you visit all the places, ard NT 3000 for more than 8 to 9 hrs.
Day 9 (Sat): 台北 - 端芳 - 十份 - 平溪 - 青桐 - 九份 - 基隆 - 西门町
Day 10 (Sun) : 台北 – 桃园机场
Honestly, your plan need to including waiting bus timing, some natural place only has limited bus timing. You really need to check carefully, okie
I am not sure what time you reach 桃园机场 on day 1. But if I were you, first day I will go to Taipei first and skip the 高雄 - 垦丁 (夜宿高雄).
10 days journey:-
Day 1 == 桃园机场 (If reach on evening time) 啠 台北 啠士林夜市 or 西门町
Day 2 == 野柳风景--> 九份 --> 基隆 (book cab?)
Day 3== 阳明山 (hot spring or go to Gu Gong Museum -> 北投 (only hot spring) -> 淡水老街 (Can take boat go to Yu ren ma tou ")
Day 4 == Take early train like 7am go to 嘉仪, reach there should 10 am. You shd have miss the chance of taking Alishan Train ( Not sure this train now still working or not, last time I heard Alishan train only stop half way and need to walk, I am also not sure you better check) Another alternative is goto take VAN go up. Take VAN will be faster a lot, price same as Alishan Train ticket. This kind of van cabby consider illegal, but still got lot ppl will go with them, got supply and demand there… haha.
When you reach Alishan Forest, should be around 12pm to 1pm. You can check in your luggage and then walk to forest till 5 or 6pm. I doubt you can walk all the area, not sure if you have Alishan forest Map? Split into 2 areas, last time when I went there, I walk 1 area first, then next day morning after see sun rise will go walk forest again for another area.
Day 5 == After see sun rise at early mrng, around 4 to 6am – depend on sunrise timing.
FYI – 2 places to see sun rise, one is within Alishan Forest to see sun rise, another location is go to YuSan to see sun rise. Normall, hotel ppl will ask you all whether want to go to “YuSan” , the taller mountain in Taiwan to enjoy sunrise or not. I can’t remember the fee, shd be ard NT 150 or 300, go there by van and most probably they will also free you breakfast.
By the time you finish see sun rise and dinner shd be ard 9am… you can walk forest as I mention on above if you dun feel tire.
Remember, if you want to take alishan train back to嘉仪 station, last train is 1pm. Or you can also go back to van cabby and ask them to fetch you down. Mostly they will wait ppl at 7-11 shop (Alishan to 7-11 shop there). If you all confirm want to take van, must book early and let them know how many ppls. They will stop at mid way to introduce 奋起湖 to you all. Most likely will rest for 30 min to let u walk a while.
Assume leave at 1pm, reach 嘉仪 train station shd be around 4pm.
Now there is problem on how to go from嘉仪 train station to南投日月潭, got few ways to go, difficult to explain to you here, but let me know if you need information, I can send the file thru MSN to you.
At night stay in （日月潭）
Day 6 – walk around（日月潭）and then you can go to Cing Jing Farm during evening time. I can recommend one cabby to you who fetch ppl from Sun Moon Lake to Cing Jing Farm. One person is NT 250, so far he is the cheapest driver that I ever found.
And stay in 清境星光流域 049-2802410 . 0933559351 – room type – very normal but service and food 5 stars.
Day 7 – Walk around Cing Jing Farm for 1 whole day, Mishu lady boss will fetch you go and back after you finish at night.
Day 8 – If you still want to stay another 1 night, then you can book a cabby at price NT3000 to NT 3500. They will fetch you go to 合欢山石门山登山口 very cool around 8 to 9 degree during summer time (early morning). They will also bring you go to Lou San to have hot spring. So whole day journey need around 8 to 9 hours.
Day 9 == 清境 back to Taipei on early morning at 10am.
First choice, take tour bus direct back from 清境 to Taipei (pls check timeing)
Second choice, ask same van cabby who fetch you back to Puli (35 min) and then take bus back to Tai Chung high speed station (2 hrs). From Tai Chung take high speed train back to Taipei City (1 hr). You can ask the Minshu boss to help you arrange as they have this kind of good contact information.
This is how I spend on my first trip to Taiwan 2 yrs ago but I went for 14 days, hence I can cover Hualien as well.
I have sent you personal msg, enjoy your trip :-):-)查看完整圖文版
