  1. Hi, I am not sure where is the pickup point for bus 6506 at Cingjing. Please advise. Thanks! chew[dot]dickson[at]gmail[dot]com

  2. As you can see in the maps, there are some bus signs.
    You can ask the B&B host or 7-11 or visitor center where is the most closed pickup point.

    BTW, there are some construction around taroko. Please ask the nationa park to check whether the Hualien Bus from Lishang to Hualien is available or not.

  3. Hi Sullivan,

    I'm keen on the Alisan -> SML bus. Can the bus ticket be bought in advance online?


    1. The ticket cannot be bought online.
      Generally, you have to buy on sight.
      I have heard that if you stay in the hotel in Alisan, you can buy ticket in hotel. But I'm not sure is it true.

      I don't think you need to worry the ticket. There should be seats available, especially in the weekdays.

    2. According to the information of 9/30/202013
      You may book in advance by the phone 《049-2770041》

  4. From Alishan, I need to go to Chiayi HSR to take the train to Tainan, Which bus should I take from Alishan to Chiayi HSR? What are the times of the schedule of the bus?

    From what I understand, the bus goes from Alishan to Chiayi bus station. How do I go to Chiayi HSR?

    I cannot read Chinese.

    1. HSR and TRA are different railway systems.
      Alisan<->Chiayi HSR
      Alisan<->Chiayi Railway Station (TRA)

      TRA is much better for you.
      1.The shuttle bus frequency (Alisan<->Chiayi TRA)is higher
      2.Both TRA Chiayi and Tainan stations is located in the city centers. Both HSR stations are in rural area.

  5. can the bus from alishan to SML fit our luggage because it looks small in size?

  6. Hi Sullivan,
    In Alishan,where is the bus stop of the bus 6397 to SML? Thanks a lot.

    1. The bus stop is next to 7-11, a few meters in front of Alisan Train Station.

  7. Hi Sullivan,
    Can we use this "5 day ticket" to go from Alishan to SML, then from SML to Taichung? Thanks!
