After 6 weeks of travel in Taiwan, we’ve visited quite a lot of cities and counties, and done a number of travel guides which you can find here. One thing we never ever forget though, is Ian’s first love – video making. Here’s our Taiwan Travel Visuals video for your viewing pleasure.

Not all locations in Taipei are reachable by public transport. The far away ones that need to have pre-booked shuttle services are Yehliu, Jiufen and Shifen. The rest are within the city and area easily reachable.
For Nantou County, it’s best if you book a private vehicle coming from Taichung. It’s only 2 hours max away, and cannot be reached through public transport. There are no trains or buses that run from Taichung to Nantou.
Taichung City is a bustling city but smaller than Taipei. The 3 places listed above are not near each other. You can take a taxi though, or hire a private car. From any 2 of the 3 places, do allot 1 hour max for your travel time.
The southern most city we visited is Kaohsiung City. The train system is easily one of the most developed in Taiwan so public transport is not a problem. You can take a train, and probably transfer to a bus to reach all the places we went to in Kaohsiung.
Having to fly from Taipei, Penghu County is a destination not really famous with the tourists yet. We took a 50-min domestic flight from Taipei, and once in Penghu, we transferred to a private car that took care of us during our 3 full days. Public transport is next to nothing so you really have to pre-plan everything in Penghu.
