What's the Best Way to Get to Cihu from Taipei?

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.

What's the Best Way to Get to Cihu from Taipei?

Postby gavmasterflash » 06 Sep 2015, 13:26

Hey there, just looking for the best way to get to Cihu from Taipei. Would it be easier to go to Daxi bus station first and then to Cihu from there? Or would it be easier to go to Zhongli first and then take a bus from there? Please advise. Thanks! Also, would it be possible to also go to Xiao Wulai Waterfall and Cihu in the same day?

Probably best to take the bus directly from Zhongli to Xiao Wulai, one of the underappreciated gems of Taiwan's lower mountains, with a stop in Cihu on your return. Certainly this is doable as a day trip, but to really explore this area properly you should consider breaking it up by overnighting in Jiaobanshan.

If you want to take a bus of the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle service, note that they only go to Xiao Wulai on Sundays and public holidays. http://www.taiwantrip.com.tw/Besttour/Info/?id=46 [Bus leaves from Taoyuan]

The Cihu Route is daily and buses leave from Zhongli http://www.taiwantrip.com.tw/Besttour/Info/?id=3

Thanks Hannes. But I also wanted to know the bus route # for the one from Zhongli to Xiao Wulai. I guess I could also inquire at the tourist office at Zhongli Main Station.

It's 502, but from Taoyuan not Zhongli, and not on weekdays only weekends and holidays.

I'm assuming the 9103 still goes to Daxi from Yongning station and probably the newly opened Dingpu station?
