Taiwan - One Week

Jump to last reply

I am going to Taiwan with my boyfriend from a Saturday to a Saturday in July.

I was hoping for some suggestions on how much of the island do you think we could fit in? I really want to explore it as it seems like an amazing country. At the minute we are thinking of 2 days Taipei, then travelling down to Kaohsiung so we can cycle down to the southern tip of the island for 2 days before travelling back up to Hualien and visiting Taroko Gorge.

I would like to see Sun Moon Lake area as well if possible.

What do people think? Is this feasible or am I trying to squeeze too much in? Any itinerary suggestions are much appreciated relating to these places or to anything else you think worth seeing. Basically me and my boyfriend love being outdoors, exploring and food ! We want as real as an experience as possible.
