Hi all,

Many thanks for all the answers, very helpful!

On 11 Sep we planned to visit Yilan from Taipei. Most probably we will take the Kamalan bus (thanks @RichardP).

We want to do the following:

11 Sep: Taipei -> Yilan (by Kamalan bus) -> check in at Rothenburg Lodge.(http://www.rothenburglodge.tw).

12 Sep: check out and then check in at Feng Chun Villa (http://www.fengchunvilla.com.tw)

13 Sep: check out & back to Taipei.

Now I don't know which sighseeing we can do:

* on 11 Sep before checkin to Rothenburg

* on 12 Sep after checkout from Rothenburg and before checkin to Feng Chun

* on 13 Sep after checkout from Feng Chun, before traveling back to Taiwan.

We also don't know where to have lunch on those 3days. We will be travelling w/ our 5yrs old & 7yrs old.

The travel link at http://www.rothenburglodge.tw/ website all in Chinese and I don't speak nor read Chinese...

thanks in advance
