Tips / Notes:• Before booking a hotel, icheck nyo yung malapit sa mga Mrt station para tipid mga besh at lakad2 lang 🙂 For Solo Traveler at gusto magtipid try nyo hanap ng for backpackers ito recommended ko (see below).•For solo traveler, try nyo maghanap sa Klook or KKday ng package like yung day 6 ko kasi mas matipid sya.•For group naman mas okay kung rent kau sasakyan para mapuntahan lahat esp. yung Shifen Waterfalls 🙂•Book a 4G wifi for rent online either at KKday (Wif Rental) or Klook (Wifi Rental) the rent is ₱150/Day.•If you will go to other cities like Taichung or Kaohsiung, book the unlimited ride HSR access for 3Days at KKday or Klook via online. For ₱3000, you will save a lot of money than buying it per ride. Look for the promo code sometimes they have ₱1000 disc promo code for that.
