Family Trip to Taiwan (台湾) - 8 Days 7 Nights Itinerary

Our first trip to Taiwan was back in 2005. Denver was 2 years old and he has no collection of his trip. Gladys was born a year later and she has been 'complaining' why we did not take her along. :) After multiple road trips into Johor Bahru, its time we take flight.

We booked our air tickets to Taiwan via Scoot which costs about SGD1830 for our family. Timing is pretty good and we picked to hop on a midnight flight to Taiwan and return back to Singapore in the night.

Planning the itinerary for our 8D7N free & easy tour in Taiwan was extremely difficult. There are so many places that we wanted to go but there are not enough days to cover them all! It took me many weeks and late nights to look through the travel booklets, websites and blogs before I finally streamline and firm up on our itinerary.

Day 8 (Taipei - Singapore)

Not all the places we went were included in our planned itinerary. We made changes and added some flexibility to ensure that we have some rest throughout our trip. We also hired transport to bring us around Taiwan so as to shorten the time taken to travel and maximize the places of interest that we can visit in the day. Will share more information of our friendly drivers and add in more photographs once I sorted them out. Meanwhile, hope this will be a quick road map for those who is planning on a trip to Taiwan this December school holiday.
