Taiwan Family Travel 8D7N Free & Easy Itinerary (December 2017)

The children had been looking forward to the trip to Taiwan, because they got to travel with their beloved grandparents again! This is the children's second time visiting Taiwan, but this time, we traveled to places that we didn't visit in the previous trip (see our itinerary for Taiwan December 2015 here).

We hired a private driver for 2 days to visit places that are not very accessible by train and bus. Here is our 8D7N free and easy itinerary for our family Taiwan trip in December 2017.

We will continue to update this post to link up with the details of our travelogue, so stay tuned!
