I’d like to jump into this conversation with a comment and some questions.
I have three very detailed maps from Sun River which have been useful for exploring areas in Laiyi and Chun Rih townships, but what I could really need is a more generalized map showing trailheads and as much topographic info as I can afford. My main interest is day hikes, and not just the ones in the Central Mountains. I’ve been stumbling around Southern Taiwan using printouts from Google Earth, and then scouting around for trailhead signs: there has to be a better way.
Question: Has anyone purchased the Sun River Taiwan Atlas? I’ve clicked through to the English language description of it, sunriver.com.tw/map_01.htm , but have come away more confused than elightened. To wit:

I’m going to Taipei in a couple of weeks, so if anyone could point me to some places where I might peruse, then buy some maps, I’d be much obliged.
