Ok, so my planned trip to Orchid Island is fading fast… We’re shortlisted for the flight from Taidung, but with only 38 passengers per day, the waiting list seems a little long. After reading previous posts about mass-seasickness, I’m not keen on a 2hour topsy-turvy boat ride.
The good news is that we have already gotten our train tickets - return trip to Taidung, so I’m thinking we might do a little camping and exploring around Zhiben. The weather should be perfect for hiking and then soaking our bodies in the hot springs. We’ll probably rent a motorbike and try to work our way through the mountains and up the gorge.
Can anyone offer some tips for going through the Taidung and Zhiben areas? We’re going to be there for 3 full days.
