Taiwan itinerary help, only 3 nights/2 days.

Jump to last reply

Have been to Taipei but not elsewhere in Taiwan. One reason I'm including Taiwan on an upcoming trip is to visit Taipei 101's observation deck (didn't go the last time I was in Taipei due to the weather).

Would like to visit Tainan and interested in seeing the Dome of Light in Kaoshuing.

This is the itinerary I'd drafted:-

Day 1, arrive 10.30 am, at TPE, take bus to Taoyuan and take HSR to Tainan. Sightsee in Tainan. Overnight in Tainan.
Day 2, more sightseeing in Tainan, spend late afternoon or evening visiting the Dome of Light in Kaoshuing using HSR. Overnight, Tainan.
Day 3, take HSR to Taipei, visit Taipei 101. Overnight, Taipei.
Day 4, depart Taiwan.

HSR = High Speed Rail.

As the weather can be a hit or miss, I'm debating if I should base myself in Taipei and make day trips. If I do this the two day trips I'd make would be to Tainan and Kaoshuing, which really are in the same direction and would take more travel time but would give me the flexibility of staying in Taipei if the weather is good for visiting Taipei 101. I'd buy a rail pass, so I'd have unlimited travel on the HSR for three consecutive days. The itinerary would be like this:-

Day 1, arrive TPE at 10.30 am, travel to Taipei,sightsee visit Taipei 101 overnight, Taipei
Day 2, day trip to Tainan by HSR, overnight, Taipei.
Day 3, day trip to Kaoshuing or stay in Taipei if I don't visit Taipei 101 on day 1. Overnight, Taipei.
Day 4, depart Taiwan.

Please critic both itineraries and let me know which one is better. I can't spend anymore days in Taiwan, so adding a day or two is not an option.

Thanks in advance.
