We finally braced ourselves for a family holiday and a ten days one at that. We survived it and it wasn’t as bad as we thought so here’s part one of our 10 day free and easy trip to Taiwan.
These are the places we covered in Taiwan from mid to end May, Miaoli -> Cing Jing -> Hua Lian -> Taipei
We checked in early for our flight to allow Sophie some play time before we took off for our 5-hour flight from Singapore to Taipei.
3 storey high playground at Changi Terminal 3
I had initially prepared a bag of activities for the flight. But silly me forgot to bring along Sophie’s coloured pencils and I was surprised that the air stewardess said they didn’t have any as the activity pack given was a jigsaw set and a pencil case. How boring.
With nothing to keep her entertained, I had to answer a hundred and one questions from her until the flight entertainment was finally up and we all got to enjoy some telly time.
Little Sophie had her eyes glued to the screen
She finally knocked out half an hour before we landed which was just as well since we had to take another 2 hours cab ride to Flying Cow Ranch for our very first farm stay! We’ve heard good reviews about it from friends and TripAdvisor so we were looking forward to it.
Taiwan Adventure Day 1 and 2- Flying Cow Ranch
From Tao Yuan airport, we hailed a taxi and traveled 2 hours to get to Flying Cow Ranch. If you’re going in a big group of 5 or more, I’ll advise you to get Flying Cow Ranch to arrange for pick up in a mini van. Charges do apply, so you’ll have to check with them when you’re making your bookings.
We arrived at the Flying Cow Ranch in the evening and was surprised by the spacious room when we checked in. It may be simple in deco but proved to be a comfortable stay.
The room was well equipped with a mini fridge, hot flask, hair dryer, basic amenities, and was much roomier than I expected.
We wasted no time and headed for the last activity for the evening where they were conducting a DIY activity, baking milk biscuits. Sophie was enthusiastic about helping and assisted to sieve the flour and stir in the ingredients. She even told me she learnt to bake in her childcare.
Our red bean sandwiched between two biscuits was a success and they tasted surprisingly delicious!
Before we turned it for the night, we were treated to fresh milk from the farm with the vouchers we received from our stay. I loved the malt flavored version which was sweeter compared to the regular milk but it was certainly a refreshing flavour.
The next morning, it’s off to the farm we go!
Exploring Flying Cow Ranch
The first activity we did was to feed the calves. Unfortunately, Sophie is too young for the task as we were told that the calves would suck hard at the teat of the bottle and unlike her milk bottle, the top is not screwed on. So Alexis and I had out go at feeding instead.
My fingers were massaged as the calves licked and sucked on the teat!
After feeding the calves, I had my go at milking the cow. It was not as tricky as some described. Then again, I was a breastfeeding mum 😛 Sophie wasn’t keen to have a go at it and kept at a safe distance to watch from the side. The poor cow must have felt so violated having to be milked by so many hands.
After the session was over, we noticed that the cows had their teats sterilised. At least, we know that the milk that it produced is not contaminated.
Barbado sheeps behind us
Other feeding that took place on the farm included the kids (baby goats), ducks and rabbits
We also bought some leaves to feed the goats
Self-service sheep feed
Next we went on to feed the rabbits that were housed in another area.
I loved how this farm provided lots of opportunities for Sophie to get up close to the animals and to feed them. Getting back to the main accommodation area was a rather long walk but along the way, there were sights like these musical bells which caught Sophie’s attention.
There’s lots and lots of greenery which was certainly a welcomed sight
We didn’t join the rest of the afternoon DIY activities and decided to have their famous fresh milk based steamboat before we left. It was a healthy meal with lots of greens and it reminded me of carbonara where the sweetness of the milk can be tasted in the cooked food. Definitely, not to be missed.
And for dessert, we had a milk pudding that was interestingly shaped in a “balloon” which had to be pricked open.
There are plenty of cow related merchandise that you can purchase as a souvenir to remember your stay here at the Flying Cow Ranch.
Review of Flying Cow Ranch
Although we only spent one day and one night at the Flying Cow Ranch, it gave us sufficient time to explore and take part in the activities which are great for family bonding. Families with young kids will definitely enjoy this place though I wished there were more interactive signages to allow children to learn about life on the farm, the different stages of animal’s growth, etc. Be prepared to walk as you’ll have to climb stairs to get to the main activity area and then out to the farm. Not all parts of the farm are stroller friendly due to the stairs.
Complimentary breakfast is served and there is also a fast food restaurant, a Western restaurant and a Chinese restaurant, so you don’t have to worry about options for meals on the ranch. We enjoyed interesting meals like the milk based steamboat which is surely a first for me.
The staff were friendly and helpful with our luggage and provided directions around the farm. I was impressed at how clean and spacious the rooms were with comfortable bedding. Overall the farm stay at Flying Cow Ranch was a fun experience for us and I’ll recommend it to friends with young children for a taste of life on the farm
Heading to Taiwan soon? Don’t miss the rest of our Taiwan adventures:
- Cing Jing (Day 3) – Carton King and review of Accomodation at Misty Villa
- Cing Jing (Day 4) – Green Green Grassland and Small Swiss Garden
- Hua Lien (Day 5) – Hualien 花莲, Taroko Gorge 太鲁阁
- Hua Lien (Day 6) – Whale Watching in Hua Lien

Wow looks like a lot of fun! The next time we’re going to Taiwan I’m going to consider the farm visit too. The last time I went, without kids, was just the museums and shopping around Taipei for 5 days. 🙁
Taipei without kids is fun. Frankly, I didn’t shop as much as I would have liked as Sophie was along with us on this trip. But the farm stay would be enjoyable for the kids and family.
Its nice to see yr blog.
With your itinerary that’s mostly farm-stay, is Sofie enjoying every bit? Is any of your stay farm like paddy field, river with fishes, farmers-run-stay accommodate?
Sorry to ask you cos saw Channel U of minsu but just couldn’t find it.
Our farm stay was more commercialised but what you described certainly sounds like fun too! Sophie enjoyed her stay very much and after breakfast she was all ready to meet the farm animals and feed them 🙂
Thanks for sharing this post. I will definitely check out your post when we finally plan a trip to Taiwan.
cities can be difficult for kids, negotiating pavements, traffic and crazy steps up and down subways… but patience will pay off… my kids are older now and can manage quite a few flights of steps and can walk on their own a few meters in front of me without worrying about their safety…
a quick question Susan, the people at kiasuparents mentioned the sandfly bites at flying cow… you did not mention anything about them… did you encounter any? or did the longsleeves and pants keep them away?
we’re planning flyingcow for the end of the year…
We didn’t encounter sand flies when we were there. The sand flies may be a seasonal thing and besides it rained in the late morning which may have kept the flies out. We just wore t-shirt and shorts as you can see from my photos and it’s always advisable to bring along insect repellent.
Hope you enjoy your stay there 🙂
[…] Flying Cow Ranch, Miaoli – http://ajugglingmom.com/first-farm-stay-at-flying-cow-ranch/ […]
Hi Susan, sounds like a dream holiday for kids. Is the ranch accessible? Did you take the fast train from Taipei to get here? Thanks for sharing 😀
The ranch looks interesting – care to share how do you get to the ranch ? Via train or cab ? And how do you make reservation for the ranch stay ? Thanks !
I booked my stay directly from the farm on their website. Here’s the link http://www.flyingcow.com.tw/hotel/reservation/index.php.
To get to the farm from the airport, I hailed a cab from the airport and was quoted 3000TWD. The journey was long though, almost 2 hours.
Thanks for the really quick reply 🙂
I was also thinking to visit the ranch upon arrival – is that recommended since you mention the journey to the ranch is almost 2 hrs and in addition – this is just after a flight ?
Also, is it better to book the transport first prior to the trip ? I checked the flying cow website and seems that they provide transport too with a fee.
What type of room would you recommend to stay at the ranch ? I am thinking we would leave the farm late afternoon say about 3pm – do you think that is enough time to explore the farm if we checked in the night before ?
Sorry for this long list of questions :p
For us, we headed directly to the Flying Cow Ranch after we touched down and bought our pre-paid SIM Card at the airport. We checked with the ranch and they recommended that we take a cab there ourselves since we are a small family of 3, their transport is not free and you have to pay a fee of TWD2900. We paid TWD2,000 for a cab that we hailed from the cab stand. The journey was 2 hours. We booked the Luxury elegant suite and the room was very spacious. You can check out their rooms here, http://www.flyingcow.com.tw/hotel/reservation/reservation.php.
Actually we also stayed for 1D1N and left at 4:30pm the next day as most of the farm activities are in the morning. It is enough time to explore the farm area. We also did their DIY activity on the first night.
Hi! One more question =) does the room come with its own toilet or is it shared with other rooms? The guide at natas said that it isa common toilet =)
The toilet is in the room. No common toilets.
Thanks a bunch for all the information 🙂
Thanks for the review,
I am visiting FLying Cow Ranch this Nov with my family. We planned to stay 2 nights there ,however the rooms are fully booked on one of the night so we can only stay one night there.
Do you think 1 night is sufficient for the kids to try out all the activities?
DO they allow us to stay behind for activities after we check out the next day?
I saw that you went to cing jing too.. was thinking of spending 3 nights there instead of 2 since flying cow has no rooms for us. What can the children do in cing jing?
I was there for just 1 day and 1 night and felt it was sufficient. In fact, most activities are in the day, unless you are keen to join all their DIY activities. When you reach, the staff can share the timing of the activities so that you can plan accordingly.
Not a problem to leave your luggage at the front desk while you continue the next day. In fact, I did that as I only left for Cing Jing at 4pm.
If you see from my other posts, there isn’t he Cing Jing Veteran Farm, or Green Green Grassland and Small Swiss Garden. Other places you can visit are Old England Manor, or if you are more adventurous some of their trails are beautiful.
[…] Miao Li (Day 1 and 2)- Farm stay on Flying Cow Ranch […]
With the information on your website, we are also planning to go to flying cow ranch followed by Ching Jing farm. We have settled the transport from Tao yuan airport to flying cow as we noted that e-go transport company can provide the service. But our concern is from flying cow to Ching Jing Minsu. We have 2 families of 7. Should we pre-book transport? Or you see no problem for us to get 2 cabs?
For such a big group, it’s better that you pre-book your transportation. Else you may want to try to write to Flying Cow Ranch for advice.
Thank you for sharing yr experience. I’m also planning my trip there but I noticed they only have a room for 2 person. Are you familiar with their accommodation policy as I’ve two kids, will they allow 2 adults 2 child in a room meant for 2? Do they charge extra? I don’t mind cramping since it’s just one nite.
Hi, I believe they have larger family rooms to accommodate your family. My best advice is to email them to ask. Have you tried that?
Nice! We visited the ranch in Feb last year. It is indeed a homely and child-friendly place. We missed the morning activities as my daughter, then over a year old, knocked out after the long travel. 🙂 We hope to visit again. Btw, are all their activities only in the evening?
Most of their activities are in the afternoon and evening as most feeding ends by then.
We are planning to visit tw in June. And came upon ur blog. Very encouraging.
Would u mind to share with us literary ? Person to contact for taxi, mode of transport.
To get to flying cow, will train be possible too?
Thanks for your note. I’ll email you my itinerary this evening.When I researched, it’s harder to get to the ranch by train and it’s so much easier by taxi or if you go in a bigger group, 6 pax and up, you can ask Flying Cow Ranch to pick you up at a fee. For my journey there, I just hailed a cab from the airport as I headed there right after I landed.
I’m so glad to come across your website as I’m also planning a flying cow-cingjing trip for my two boys. Could you pls email me the same info as Honey above? Thank you do much!
Hi dear, thanks for sharing. Am so glad to come across your blog. I have been to Taiwan last year with my family. We are planning to go again. My girls love the Cow Ranch so much and wanted to go back there again. This time we are doing a DIY trip. I reallllly appreciate if you could forward me your itinerary and contacts ( lodging, transport) there. Thanks…
Thanks for visiting my blog and glad you found the info useful. Sure I’ll email it across to you 🙂
Very insightful blog Susan. The taxi you hailed at the airport for TWD2,000 to Flying Cow, was it via meter or do you have to negotiate?
Would appreciate if you could email your itinerary including transport contacts if possible.
Thank you greatly.
Hi Ah Ong,
It was the quoted price before we boarded the taxi from the airport. Sure I’ll email you my itinerary 🙂
Hi, i thought of visiting Taiwan (2adults and 2 children) during the Dec school hols. Possible to have a copy of your itinerary including transport contacts please. It is my first time visiting Taiwan, is it advisable to go Free and Easy?
Yes definitely possible to go F&E in Taiwan as it’s such a family friendly country. Just need to be more hardworking and plan well. I’ve dropped you an email on my itinerary. Do drop me a note if you have any questions and I’ll try my best to help 🙂
Hi! Im very inspired by ur blog on the farmstay. Could u share your itinary as im planning a F&E trip with my family. Thank you so much. Where else would u recommend, for kids age 2,6. Thank you!
Hi Michelle, sure. I can email it to you. If it’s Taipei, I’ll recommend the Baby Boss, Shifen and Juifen. My girl also enjoyed rou he, where they have some game stalls. Hope you have fun!
Hi Susan , this is awesome ! i am planning 10 days trip with my 4 and 1 years old kids on this coming October . Don’t mind share with me your literary and driver information ? Thanks in advance.
Hi Sam, Sure. I’ll email it to you.
Dear Susan, thanks lots for sharing about your trip! It really looked fun and I think many couples with young families may consider these beautiful places! We are very tempted to go too! Can trouble you to share your intinerary and any other useful info? Thanks a bunch! Have a good weekend! 🙂
Hi Marie, I’ve emailed it to you. Hope it’s useful for your planning.
Hi Susan, could you share your itinerary over email please? Thanks so much 🙂
I’ve emailed it to you.
We r planning to visit Taiwan in Sept 14. Can u share your itinerary with us. We would like to use it as a reference. Can I check which r the portion that u engage a private driver.
So glad to come across ur blog as not sure where to start.
Hi Susan, was researching on farm stays in Taiwan and glad I chanced upon your blog! Do u mind sending me your itinerary for reference? Thanks in advance!!!!
Hi Gracie, I’ve shared my itinerary with you. Hope it’s useful for your holiday planning.
Hi Susan and all who are reading this…just as a warning…my family n I (5 adults n 3 kids) just came back from Flying Cow. We were there on Thurs 26 June 2014. Frankly we did not enjoy our stay there mainly because of the sand flies. They were tiny and insect repellent PROOF!!! Despite us spraying n spraying they still bit all of us, leaving us with red swollen n extremely itchy bite marks. A 10 min walk to view the animals caused me to be bited with over 8 bites and I am still suffering from the itch now 🙁
Gosh, I’m so sorry to hear about that. Did you feedback to them about your unpleasant experience? We did not experience this during our stay and we did take precaution by spraying insect repellent as it is a farm stay after all.
My review on the Flying Cow Ranch was my unbias opinion of our stay there and though we enjoyable, I will also add a reminder for all travelling there to take extra precaution of the sand flies. I do hope that your bites and itch subside soon.
Jane, I was there on 9 & 10 June and got 50 sandfly bites on each leg! But it was only at the DIY workshop area, especially the washing up sinks at the back. Got complacent and didn’t put repellent after we didn’t get any bites in the ranch. Super scarred legs now 🙁 Luckily i seemed to have attracted all the flies cos my husband and kids were safe.
But overall it was a wonderful experience at Flying Cow 🙂 Would still endorse. I agree with Susan that it is a farm after all.
Thanks for sharing your experience Ping. I always attract the mozzies as well and actually had a bad case of sand flies at the minsu in Cing Jing 🙁
We just came back from flying cow too. We loved the yogurts, daily free milk. Suffering from the sand flies bites too.. according to our driver, flying cow is around 2hr drive from taipei. WHich means there is an options od staying in city and drive to the farm. We paid around 300$ per night. Beside the bites, the trip was enriching.
Driver guide mentioned that there is a bigger farm than flying cow in Hualian. Rei Suei Farm – Farm in TaiwanNo.157 Hualian County Ruisui Township, Taiwan 978.
Perhaps will try it next yr.
Hi Susan, am planning a trip this November school holiday. can you share how you book these places and cabs? must we do pre-booking? can you share your itinerary? did you stay in Taipei city ?
Hi Susan, thanks for your generosity in sharing and tirelessly answering all the posts! I’m keen to bring my toddler to Taiwan again. Could you shre with me your itinery please? Thanks a million!
Hi Susan, from taoyuan airport, u simply flag down one of the yellow cab to bring u to flying cow? Thou cabs are restricted to travel within own county. How did u travel from flying cow to cingjing?
Yes I just told the concierge at the taxi stand that I was going to Flying Cow and they asked the cabs who were in the queue if anyone was going there. From flying cow, I pre-booked a cab driver. If you want, I can email you his contact and charges.
Hi, I’m thinking of going to taiwan with my family (3 adults and 2 toddlers) in Sep.But we will go to cingjing on the first day,would u be able to advise on a toddler friendly way to go cingjing?and did u mention sand files at cingjing?would insect repellent help? And also,do u mind sending me ur itinerary and driver details for reference?thks so much!
Hi Kai Sin,
I understand that you can take the HSR from Tao Yuan to Taichung and then take a cab from there. Not too sure about the travelling and cost though. But you can probably post your question on Trip Advisor or search through the forum there for some advice 🙂 Yes, I had sand flies at Cing Jing. So use it espcially if you are going to the Cing Jing farm.
I’ve emailed you my itinerary which has details of my driver. Hope it’s useful 🙂
The pics and descriptions looked really fun.
Is it possible to forward me your Itinerary and driver contacts too?
Did you try the fast speed rail while in Taiwan?
Thanks much for your sharing. 🙂
Was having doubt if i would wanan go to all these farms… but after reading your reviews, it’s a must go! I will be there with my wife, only two of us.
Putting flying cow ranch in, and then next qing jing, now i have dilemma on how to arrange transport from flying cow ranch to qing jing…..mind sharing how you get there from qing jing?
I’m so sorry I missed replying to you. From Flying Cow, I booked a cab to Cing Jing. My cab driver was Mr Ling Hong Qing. You can drop him an email at
email@example.com. He charged me 3000TWD for the trip.
Hope it helps 🙂
interesting trip you have. i am thinking of going with my family end of this year. but as our gp is huge quite difficult to get a MPV. Can we get a cab directly at the airport and get the driver to send us to flying cow? Not sure whether will they drive us to flying cow as it is 2 hrs ride. or do we need pre booking of cabbie? Thanks.
Hi Ken, for such a big group, it advisable that you book an MPV. You can try contacting this cabbie that I used and ask him if he can take you. He’s Mr Ling Hong Qing. You can drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Else you can ask him to recommend someone or seek out some help from Trip Advisor 🙂
Him for budget wise, roughly how much you spend on F&B in Flying cow & CingJing & Hualien per day?
Hi Winnie, breakfast was inclusive in our stay at the minsu. We only spent on lunch and dinner and prices are pretty okay. The pricier meal was in Carton King in Cing Jing, which was about $30 for two adults and one child. There are of course cheaper meal options around.
Wonderful trip report. Thoroughly enjoy it. We are planning to take our 9 yr old to Taiwan this Nov. This being our first trip to Taiwan. Appreciate if you can share your itinerary, accomodations and driver contact. Thanks a bunch.
I’ve dropped you an email on my Taiwan itinerary. Hope it helps in your planning and have a good holiday in Taiwan.
Thank you for sharing
1. Can check NT3000 for traveling from Taoyuan Airport to flying cow is by MPV?cos I got 4 adults and 3 kids and looking to travel in nov 2014.
2. My flight will reach Taipei taoyuan at abt 2pm and will probably reach flying cow at abt 4pm. I am thinking to book 3 nights in total so that let my kids do all the farm activities and DIY session.is it too long to stay for 3 nights?like to hear your opinion
Many thx.i have put my email and hope to buy u coffee soon and we can share holiday notes
Wanted to ask if u got suggestions what to do in Taipei city other than below? Many thx in advance
1. Baby boss/kidzania
2. Shih Lin night market
3. Taipei 101
Replying both your questions here.
1. We got a regular cab as it’s only three of us. For a larger MPV, you may want to book in advance.
2. 2 days would be the I recommend on Flying Cow Ranch. As most of the farm activities are in the mornings, you’ll have the afternoon and evening to cover the DIY sessions.
3. Baby boss for the kids is highly recommended. We also went to the Miniatures Museum of Taipei which has lots of miniature houses and even scenes from fairy tales. We also went to Dan Shui and there are lots to see there. If you don’t mind walking can also go to Jui Fen and Shi Fen where you can light and release the paper lantern.
Hope this helps 🙂
I am doing a research on a 7days trip to Taiwan (with farmstay as the main purpose) as we are bringing four kids with the age ranging from 6-9 years old.
Will appreciate if you can share your itinerary so I can ‘steal’ a little information from there regarding flying cow and other places of interest?
No problem. I’ve dropped you an email on it. Hope you have a wonderful time there.
Thank you for your valuable inputs here.
Am planning for a trip to Taiwan during this Dec school holidays. May I request for your itinerary as reference?
I’ve emailed it to you. Hope you enjoy Taiwan with your family 🙂

Hi Susan, can you email your itinerary and the cab driver’s contact to me? I will be going with my family in December. Many thanks in advance. 🙂
I’ve sent it to you. Hope it’s useful when you plan for your family holiday in December 🙂
Am planning a trip to Taiwan with both old and young generation this Dec, can you also share your itinerary with me ? Many thanks 🙂
Hi Susan, it’s wonderful to see your sharing. I’m planning for a 5-6 days trip this dec with 2 adults and 2 kids (4 and 7yo). Was planning to stay in Taipei only so as not to spend too much time on traveling. However, looking at the fun you had, thought of a farm stay as well. Appreciate if you could send me your itinery and the cost and contact for transport.
Many thanks in advance.
HI dear Susan, Could you pls email your itinerary and the cab driver’s contact to me? I will be going with my family in December
Hi Susan, do u mind to email me your itinerary? Also do u mind sharing which airlines u took? I’m planning for a trip for 4 adults n 1 kid. Thank you.
My friend and I are going to Taiwan on December and I’m so glad I’ve found this very nice blog of yours. I’m trying to book a room online but was having a hard time. Tried to register for a membership account via Flying Cow’s website but it kept on asking for an Identity Card number (my passport number wouldn’t do), and I tried to ask them thru email but their reply was in Chinese. 🙂 Since you booked your reservations online, some helpful tips/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
aiyo, so much fun just watching the pics 🙂
is dec a good time to visit tw ?
was thinking of feb (cny period ) to get out sg – but tw got celebrate cny right ? so was told bad traffic by the agency……………..
any advice ?
If you are undeterred by the wet weather, it should be okay. But for me, it means lesser shopping since it’s mostly winter wear 🙂
If you go during CNY period, shops may be closed. Or does the agency mean bad traffic due to more locals and tourists travelling then?
I am doing up my itinerary for our family May trip (2 adults n 2kids) and my kids are aged 1 and 4.
I would appreciate if you could share your itinerary with me. 🙂
Many thanks in advance.

Can you email me a copy of you itinerary as well? We are planning to bring my 2 kids to TW. Looking at Fly cow ranch and cingjing as well. But for Fly cow, our current proposed itinerary by our driver is spending around 2-3 hours there only and then move on to lavender cottage and gaomei wetland…. I’m not sure if there will be sufficient time in Fly cow or too rush? Thanks for advice 🙂
Thanks for reading my blog. What time will you get to Flying Cow Ranch? Most of their activities are in the morning, so if you reach in the afternoon, it’s mainly to walk around the farm and it should be sufficient. We arrived in the evening, so we only spent time on the farm in the morning. Roughly took us about three hours to cover the activities from around 9 to 11, had lunch and departed at 1pm. The lavender cottage is beautiful as well but we missed it the last time we were there.
We should reach before 12pm as setting off from Taipei in the morning. OK thanks for your advices! 🙂

hi susan, is it better to travel from airport to cinjing to cow ranch farm to taipei or airport to cow ranch farm to cingjing to taipei?
For us, we took the latter option. Not sure what’s your criteria for better but we knew we wanted to start the trip on a more interesting note for my girl, that’s why we headed there first. And also bevcause, we only stayed 1D1N in Flying Cow and proceeded on to CJ and HL.
Hey, thanks for sharing such a wonderful blog. I am planning a trip with a big group this coming dec and would appreciate if you could email me the itinerary and transport contact. Thank you.
I’ve dropped you an email on it. Hope you enjoy Taiwan as much as we did.
We are planning a trip with our 4yo and 2yo this Nov. We are arriving at Flying Cow Ranch at about 5pm (direct from Taoyuan Airport) and staying the night. We plan to spend the morning exploring the farm animals and maybe a DIY activity, before heading off at 11am or 12pm.
Is that too rushed? If you dont mind, could you also share your itinerary with me?
Thanks so much! 🙂
I’ve emailed my itinerary to you. We arrived at the farm around 7pm the day before and stayed till 4:30pm the next day before making our way to Cing Jing. This gave us more time to explore around the farm and have lunch too.
Hi Susan. Thanks for sharing your Taiwan experience with us. Can you share with me your itinerary. Thanks
Hi Su Yen,
Sure. I’ve dropped you an email with it 🙂
Lovely blog of the Taiwan trip. Am planning to bring my 2 year pls to Taiwan this November.
Intend to stay 2 nights at Flying Cow ranch so that he can take his afternoon nap in the hotel room the next day, after the morning farm tour.
Just wondering, from the Ranch to Taipei city, would I be able to hail cab via the hotel reception, or mus I pre book transport?
Can kindly email me your itinerary too?
Hi Boon, sorry I missed replying you and have emailed my itinerary to you. If you’re planning to depart on the 2nd day, you can let the hotel know when you check in and they can book it for you. Else pre-booking is advised. Hope you enjoy your trip 🙂
Hi Susan, nice sharing. Mind to share your itinerary?
Sure Annie. I’ve dropped you an email of my itinerary. Hope it’s useful.
Very insightful blog. Would you mind sharing your itinerary with me ? We are planning to bring our 2 2 years old toddlers for the farm stay in July. Do you think the activities will suit them ? Will there be sand flies in July ? Can 2 years old participate the activities in Baby Boss ? Thank you.
Hi June, I’ve dropped you an email with my itinerary.
I feel that 2 years old is quite a nice age to take them to the farm as they would recognise the farm animals and can even feed the rabbits and goats. We did experience some sandflies, so do dress your kids in long pants and have insect repellent.
As for BabyBoss, 2 years old is too young and I think minimum age is three years old to appreciate and enjoy the experience.
hello, can you share with me your experience over there, and how to book to stay there ? kindly PM me in my emails. thanks appreciate
I’ve emailed it across to you 🙂

Sorry for the late reply. I’ve emailed my itinerary to you 🙂
I just booked the farm stay. The room reservation opened today 9am for Dec stay.. I logged in at 9am, most of the cheaper room with one bed are taken up. Left with the family room with 2 beds. Although i’m bringing my 3yo there but still prefer a cheaper room. It cost me $60 more per room. 🙁
Not sure if they pre booked for tour groups or what. 🙁
That sounds like the situation since the rooms were mostly booked up. Hope you still enjoy yourself on the farm with your family.
Selina I had the EXACT issue with Flying Cow! End up I had to book the 4pax (2 double beds) altho there are only 2A1C. I’m staying 2 nights. Thu cheaper room was available but Fri room only left the 2 double beds. Haiz. Did we pay the deposit or is the payment fully secured by credit card? I receive the email confirmation about my payment but due to my limited Chinese, cannot really understand the contents of their confirmation.
Hope you managed to get your question answered by them and have an enjoyable on the farm.
Hi Susan, im planning go flying cow and other places in October. Can i share your itinerary thank you.
Hi Ivy. Please check your email 🙂

Hi Susan, glad to chance upon your blog. I’m planning to bring my 2+ year old and 7months baby then to Tw in March 2016. Can I know if you would recommend us to go flying cow or Leofoo resort? Which is better and why? Thanks in advance as it will be my first time to tw.
I’ve not been to Leofoo resort but you can read more about it here my friend’s blog here. I feel that Flying Cow is more suitable for younger kids but both certainly will be a hit with the kids.
Hi Susan, your trip to Taiwan was very interesting and makes me feel like going too. Appreciate if you can share your itinerary, accommodations and driver contacts with me. Thank you in advance.
Certainly May. I’ve sent it to you 🙂
Hi Susan, yes settled with Flying Cow 🙂 may I have your driver’s contacts please. And also your itinerary if you can email to me? My trip is in a month’s time but I haven’t found any who is available. Was your contact driving a saloon car? I’m looking for a small car since it’s just the man, me and our son.
Sure, I’ve emailed my driver’s contact and itinerary to you. All the cars we took were a saloon as we’re a family of three. Some also provided car seat but do indicate when you book them.
Do you mind sharing ur itinerary to violeteng@Hotmail.com …. Do u have any issue lugging the luggage up to your room coz I realised there are no lift. haha .. a practical mummy.

My children (14 & 10 yrs old) have been asking for farm stay and was thinking of Flying Cow Ranch. Is it suitable for them? Tks

Hi Susan, do you think it will be difficult to hail a cab from flying cow ranch to taoyuan airport?
Frankly, I’m not sure how hard it is to get a cab that takes you to Flying Cow Ranch but the journey takes 1.5 hr. So I guess we were lucky a cab driver was heading in that direction.
Hi, I’m visiting taiwan with my hubby, 16month toddler and mom in May. Would be great if you can share your itinerary with me as well, will definitelyhelp me with my holiday planning. Thanks in advance!

Hi Susan, i would like to ask whether are there any adult only activities at the Flying Cow Ranch
The Flying Cow ranch is generally a family friendly place, and they have activities for both the young and old, like baking lessons, making pizza or handmade items etc.

Hi Jas, I’ve sent my itinerary to you 🙂
Hi Susan, can you please send your itinerary with me? Going to Taipei in dec with four children.

Please send to me email@example.com Thanks so much!!!
I think your children will prefer the Flying Cow ranch as there are opportunities to see the different farm animals. They can also feed the ducks, rabbits and goats or milk a cow for your older one. There also also DIY activities for craft work or baking, making pizza etc which they can do. I’ve sent you my itinerary with my driver’s contacts. Hope it will be helpful 🙂
Can you email me your Taiwan’s itinerary and driver’s contacts as reference ?
Sure, I’ve sent it to you 🙂

Hi Susan, I am planning a TW trip in Dec with 2A2C. Chanced upon your blog and it’s getting me excited cos prior felt bit lost on what and how to go abt planning. Could you share your itinerary plus driver’s contact, pls? Another question.. from flying cow, how long does it take to cingjing? Thanks!!!
I’ve emailed you my itinerary along with my driver’s contacts and hope it helps you in planning for your trip. It’s about 2.5 hours from Flying Cow Ranch to CJ depending on traffic conditions.
Hi Susan, thanks for sharing. I am planning to go to Flying Cow Ranch. Do you think 1 day overnight stay is enough?
We did a 1 night stay and explored the farm in the morning after breakfast. So one night is very doable 🙂
Hi Susan, I read your post and they are so interesting. Sorry to ask for your itinerary as I believed you must have sent it umpteen times by now. Wanted to have contact of your drivers too. Thank you.

Hi Susan, possible to recommend some places for me and my family for 6 days? I have the youngest at 20 months and another 8 years old. My parents will be coming along too. Please recommend.
Which parts of Taiwan will you be going? Besides those that I blogged about, you may want to check out the Taipei Zoo, Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf and the various night markets. For amusement parks, you can go to Lihpao Land in Taichung or Leofoo Village Theme Park in Hsinchu County
Are you able to email me your itinerary too? Btw, how old is your kid then? Thanks..

Chance upon your post and look like quite a good one for me. Can you share with me your itenary? My email is email@example.com.
Btw, it looked like urs is a F&E, is it? And recommended contact for mini bus van to travel point to point if you have.

Hi Susan, you planned well for a relax trip. I am going Taipei, Cinjing, and Hualien coming October with hubby and son. I too prefer to do free and easy but have some concern with the transportation. How do you arrange the transportation? Do you pre-booked before the start of your holiday? Or with the minsu when you were there? Do you mind share your contacts for the driver? Thank you.
Hi Dawn, I prebooked drivers prior to the trip as my girl was young then. I’ve dropped you an email of my itinerary with the drivers contacts.
I chanced upon your blog upon searching the places to bring kids in Taiwan. It looks fun specially Cing Jing and Flying Cow. Do u mind to email me your detailed itinerary and driver’s contact? Does the driver speak English too? Thank you so much.
Hi Angela, Apologies for the late reply. I’ve emailed my itinerary to you. Hope it helps 🙂
