Hello all! So...my daughter is heading to Taiwan on a last-minute itinerary change. She's leaving Shanghai as I type and was originally going to Japan, hence the itinerary change. She'll be in Taiwan for 2 days and 2 nights...porting in on Monday (can't count on disembarking 'til late morning) and leaving Wednesday night. As she doesn't have internet access, she's asked me to plan a trip. Very briefly she said that she wanted to go to Taroko Gorge and also to rent scooters and travel up and down Routes 11 and 9, and maybe camping along the way. She got this idea somewhere but I can't find any information. She loves the outdoors and wanted to go off the beaten track. Any way to do this? Tour groups? She was thinking about an express train to get her to the southwest of Taiwan. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. In researching Taiwan, I think she should go to Taipai for a day and see the Palace (National?) Museum, then spend a day at the Gorge, then the last day she can hike in Yangmingshan Nat'l Park and get back on the ship. Don't know if I can talk her into that. Thanks ahead of time for the assistance!
