glad u liked the other places. Cheju is south koreas hawaii. Koreans love to visit. so im sure its pretty nice. Iv not been there myself sadly. Far Eastern Air Transport used to be the big TW carrier there, but their routes have been taken over by TransAsia from Taoyuan. Its not a daily flight. Every other day I think. Bummer is the flight leaves at 630pm or 710pm. So you lose the first day in Cheju, the good thing is that it comes back late too so your last day in Cheju would be long as well.
check flight schedules at TPE here:

Its only something like a bit over an hour each way. I dont think you need a visa to south korea, i didnt as a US passport holder.

China Air has one flight per week to cheju leaving at 630am on Sundays only and arriving bout 2 hours later (korea is one hour ahead of taiwan time wise).
China Air has a flight on Wednesdays to Cheju leaving at 1245pm.
TransAsia on Sunday/Wednesday leaving at 7am
So you might want to go with China or TransAsia from Kaohsiung instead of Taoyuan to have more of first day there and come back straight to Taoyuan on TransAsia as its a late flight back?? That will max your time there.
I see that LaoAg in Phillippines is being served by Mandarin Airlines with their Embraer most likely at 435pm on Sundays and Thursdays.
Thats a really short runway, with no ILS . It was served by Makung with a Bae146 the one and only time i went.
its probably part of a package with the only one resort hotel in the city. Enquire with Mandarin airlines. It was very cheap when i went back in 98 with Makung Airlines.
It was only 5000nt for flight there and back and 2 nites in the hotel. The hotel is ok, its not caesars park, and was a bit moldy but survivable.
Better to go with a drinking buddy. GF may think the place is too run down.
