1345hrs: Keelung 基隆廟口

To go to Keelung (基隆), across the road (from where you alighted just now – Yeliu bus stop) in front of the convenient shop, take Keelung bus 基隆客运 (about 40mins, cost NTD$45). Maokou 廟口 is actually 1 or 2 bus stop before Keelung bus interchange (harbour), ask the people there or bus driver to inform you where to alight…

Tips: from Keelung bus interchange you can transfer bus to Jinguashi 金瓜石 and Jiufen 九份

Once you see this McDonald on your right, prepare to alight at the next stop (after the bus turned left)

We took train back to Taipei, because it’s more comfortable and faster – around NTD$40 one way (about 35mins journey), railway station located just beside Keelung bus interchange. If you prefer bus to Taipei, there are white Guoguang buses also going back to Taipei at around NTD$50.
