Experience an exhilarating walk across the Nantou Sky Bridge – a suspension bridge 204m long with a 150m drop to the valley beneath. Thereafter, treat yourself to some luxury chocolates at the local Feeling 18 Degree Chocolate Factory. Finally, end your day enjoying a personal in-room hot spring onsen in your minsu.
Visit Qingjing Leisure Farm – a unique attraction offering exquisite scenery throughout the four seasons of the year, and an unusual tranquil pasture filled with sheep. Thereafter, head towards Taroko National Park, another one of the 9 national parks in Taiwan. Travel on the highland roads and enjoy a top of the world view at Yuan Feng Peak, and also on Wuling – the highest mountain road in Taiwan at 3,275m above sea level.

Arrive at the town of Jiaoxi (in Yilan County), well known for its hot springs. Hidden in the woods is the impressive Jiaoxi Hot Springs Park – a world-class hot spring resort with extensive foot bath areas, beautifully arranged stone paths, small wooden bridges, and a steaming hot spring river that altogether avail excellent open air onsen opportunities to its visitors. Enjoy a soak at the Yilan Jiaoxi Hot Springs Park, and perhaps again at the personal in-room onsen in your minsu.
Journey to Wai’ao, and enjoy this beautiful coastal beach in Yilan. Check out Mr Brown Coffee Castle. For whisky lovers, an alternative itinerary may be to visit the Kavalan Distillery that makes the famous single-malt Kavalan Whisky. Thereafter, bid farewell to Yilan as you head to the rural quaint towns of Jiufen, Shifen and Pingxi. Jiufen is a mountain town in Northeast Taiwan, known for its narrow alleys, traditional teahouses, street food and souvenir shops. The history of this old gold mining hub dates back to the Japanese-era gold rush that is succinctly portrayed in the Gold Mine Museum. Located in the Pingxi area, Shifen has an array of small lanes and alleys around the Shifen railway station area. Originally built to transport coal during the Japanese era, the railway station and track actually runs through the village. The marketplace area surrounding the station and tracks is a great place to try some local snacks and buy souvenirs. Whilst there, you may wish to write your wishes on a Chinese lantern and release this “heavenly lantern” to the sky. End the day in Taipei.
For these 2 days in Taipei, enjoy Taipei at your own pace and leisure. You may wish to visit the iconic Taipei 101 building, the National Palace Museum, the popular and countless F&B eateries at Yongkang Street area, the many night markets and more.
