Hey we got a ferry from Xiamen to Kinmen then a flight to Taipei!

there are also direct ferries from Xiamen to Taipei i think, but only on thursdays and sundays!

also when you leave Taiwan you'll probably want to leave from Taipei because all flights out of Kaohsiung (in the south) go through Taipei any ways!

If you head south go to Kenting, its really nice, white sand compared to the black sand everywhere else, beaches are nice there is the national park, you can hire scooters to go around on and we stayed in a hostel private room with bathroom and air-con for $600NT a night, its on the main street thinking its called Kenting street or something like that, the bus/coach drops you off there and the beach is 2 minute walk away and night market on that street too!

hope that helps

Hayley
