Because I want to sit on the top floor to breathe fresh air and virtual live freely, so I chose to go in the afternoon, about 4:30PM is nice time to boarding, both watching Taipei at sunset and watch the city lights up, very exciting.

The special thing of this bus route is that it passes famous attractions, every 30 minutes there is another bus trip running through the stop point so you can freely live virtual at every attraction. If you are lazy to get off the bus, you can take a seat by the window, turn on the so deep music, enjoy and observe Taipei until you are bored, get off like me, LOL.
