Many readers asked for my 8 days 7 nights Taiwan free and easy itinerary, so I’ve decided to share it here today. I’m sorry for losing the momentum to blog about my Taiwan summer vacation back in June 2015. I’ll attempt to pick it up again from where I left few months ago.

We engaged two drivers to bring us around Taichung, Cingjing and New Taipei City. Both of them are very nice, friendly, experienced and took great care of us. We highly recommend them. I attached their name cards here, they can be easily contacted via LINE or Whatsapp.

    Can you recommend how i should plan for 4D3N with 3 small kids (4-7 yrs)? EDA theme park inclusive..

      Hi Tan,
      If you’re planning to visit E-DA theme park and stay there, I would recommend that you stay for two days. EDA Royal Hotel is very big. Your kids will enjoy the facilities there – swimming pool, kids playroom, etc. At night, you can bring them to try out the ferris wheel.

  • Emily,

    Did your boy enjoy the HK disneyland trip more or Taiwan trip? Did you have to spend a lot on the land transport (hiring personal driver to bring your family around? )

      Hi Dawn,
      Personally, I will choose Hong Kong over Taiwan. My boy has been to HK twice and he enjoyed Disneyland very much too. Taiwan is a different “type” of vacation. He experienced more Chinese cultural activities in Taiwan as compared to modern Hong Kong. We spent ~TWD16,000 for 4-5 days of driver service in Taiwan.
