China or Taiwan?

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone, I'd love to get your opinion on choosing between China or Taiwan for around 12-13 days end of March.
1. Excluding air tickets (both of which are about the same) which of the two will be more affordable? (or is the difference not much)? What would an approximate budget look like for food and accomodation?

2. Which according to you guys is more doable within the time? I want to be able to actually enjoy the culture, food, the nature and hike across different national parks- I know both the paces have brilliant hiking opportunities- and not rush too much (I dont mind travelling by trains across distances but don't want to spend majority of the two weeks in a train)

3. Lastly I've prepared a rough itinerary for each just to get your opinion if they are doable within this time frame: For China: Beijing >Datong Hanging Monastery >Huanglong +Jiuzhaigou> Huanshan > Huangshan
For Taiwan: Taipei> Jiufen >Taroko Gorge> Sun Moon Lake > Alishan and maybe just check out more things on the way since transportation seems more easier.

Thank you! :)
