I was thinking of travelling from Taipei down the east coast where the scenery is supposed to be very beautiful. I'll most probably be travelling alone, and possibly taking public transportation.
One of my Taiwanese friends tell me that as a lone female travelling on my own, it might be safer to just go with a travel package, as many of the scenic spots along the east coast is hard to get to via public transport and it isn't so safe for a girl to travel on her own.
And if I'm to go with travel agents for travel packages, how much would it generally cost me? And how much time do I need to see the highlights of the east coast (a few famous places)... What is there to see?
Would appreciate any advise given. Thanks!
