3night 4days Taiwan tour!!! Help me :D

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

Sounds like so far you are planning to only stay around the Taipei area. It's a good starting point, but there's a lot more to see outside of Taipei. It depends on your budget, time and what you prefer to do, outdoors, museums, nature sightseeing, historic sightseeing, or night life.

The only problematic item on that list I guess would be going to a spa (hot springs). The weather is going to be humid and hot in June, Taipei city would be particularly hot. Spa might be more enjoyable in the winter. In the summer spa is enjoyable if you hiked a lot and developed sore muscles, then it is a good way to relax.

Other than that, your list looks fine. Danshui definitely is worth going to. There's a mangrove path near Hongshulin station (紅樹林站), which I think is worth going if you don't mind the summer heat. Remember to visit Fort Antonio and fisherman's wharf in Danshui.

In any case You might consider some excursions to higher sea level to escape the heat. Taiwan has some great alpine landscapes to offer. The downside is that you would need to find some form of transportation.

Some ideas for you to consider, if you can only rely on public transportation, you can checkout this free government run tour bus service.

I think for a day trip up to the mountains, you could give Xiaowulai (호행노선) a try.

The east coast is amazingly beautiful, but You probably would need to spend all 3 days there to worth the trouble getting there. 꽃보다 할배 perhaps didn't do Taroko justice, it certainly deserve more screen time. If you enjoyed your trip around Taipei, you should definitely spend another 4 day vacation in the east coast.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

I guess those two are Jiufen and Shifen?

As Hansioux wrote. Your spots are a good starting point for Taipei. Typical tours of Taipei also include Taipei 101, the Palace Museum, CKS Memorial Hall, and Longshan Temple.

If you go to Jiufen, you might want to take the bus further up and then down the road. Jinguashi, Golden Waterfall, Nanya Strange Rocks, Bitou Cape and Fulong are all interesting places, connected by the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle bus (http://www.taiwantrip.com.tw/Besttour/Info/?id=32). From Fulong you can take a train back to Taipei.

Btw, in addition to Travel in Taiwan (see links in my signature) we also have a Korean FB page you might want to check out for suggested places: https://www.facebook.com/nihaotaiwan2015?fref=ts
