After my first trip to Taiwan Mar/12 in the north spent in Taipei, Danshui, and the Yehliu Geopark this is second trip in depth exploring the southern portion

(Click Here for First Taiwan Blog in 2012 : "Made in Taiwan")                                                                                                                                                                           
I will be going south to Taichung City and exploring the surrounding temples in Changhua and Lugang. Then an overnight trip to Sun Moon Lake home of the Thao Tribe. From there onto Chung Tai Chan in Puli, the largest Monastery in Taiwan 

Next I will spend two days exploring the ancient capital of Tainan which has a European Fort and Settlement. Finally the last two days in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan's second largest city on the southern tip visiting an Aboriginal Culture Park and another Monastery, before continuing my final leg onto The Philippines. 
 
Originally I had planned on using the High Speed Train but then discovered the train stations are all on the outskirts of each city. 

Taoyuan (Taipei Airport)  > Taichung                         540 TWD  ($18)      40 mins

Taichung > Tainan                                                   650 TWD  ($22)      40 mins

Tainan > Zouying (Kaohsiung)                                  140 TWD  ($5)        15 mins

Zouying (Kaohsiung) > Taoyuan (Taipei Airport)         1330 TWD ($44)     100 mins


I had perfect weather during my entire trip, surprising for an island prone to rainstorms, and discovered many amazing temples and rich aboriginal culture
