Hello guys,

I will be going to Taipei on 30th Dec to spend my NY there...

Just some qns:

1) Is there any temples that is a most-go? I wish to visit one or two but dunno which one is worth going
Try Long Shan Si. Cat 2 historical site. Quite nice. My frens kinda like it. We went there on our last day since we were bored of shopping around.
There are some small temples in taipei. one of them at hua xi jie... or if u wan those big wan .. sun moon lake the wen wu miao very popular site.. u can use ur dsl to capture nice picture of the lake or temple... but raining seasons .. not sure u can get the best of it.

2) I understand now Taipei is in rainy season and i really helpless abt it. With this kind of weather, can we go YMS? And wat cna we do in this kind of weather? I am planning a wet weather iternary now...
It would be troublesome to go ANYWHERE in this kind of weather. You can go YMS but aviod sites where you need to climb too much cos it would be slippery and you definitely wldnt want to be climbing the mountain and carrying an umbrella at the same time. Damn shag. My advice: Skip Meng Huan Pond. Xiao You Keng is nice.
Skip... not very sure about the area. raining season may need ur raining equipment to keep u dry??

3) I will also be photographing stuff here and there with my DSLR. So wwhere is the best place to capture the fireworks or fireworks @ Taipei 101?
No idea. Need advice frm the seniors here.
101 should have fireworks its a annual event there.. places will be crowded. unless u have super good lens.. u can stay away from the heart of the crowd.

4) I am a first time traveller. My friend whom is working @ a travel agency booked EVA Air for me...but it seems to be a e-tik as i only received a receipt and some documents. So how do i check in properly?
No idea. Mine was jetstar. e-ticket printed from the net. no problem checking in at the airport.
your e-ticket should have the fligt info, ur names and amount paid for the tickets or any reference number u have booked.
usually with e-tick jus bring it along to the eva air counter at the airport terminal.. they will issue u ur boarding pass.. remember ur passport must have at least 6 month valid.. else u will not be allow for boarding.

Thanks!

Hope my advice helps though. One-cent worth.
Now you will have Two-cents worth... happy holidays
