For a bit more, I will still choose star villa, great place, great view and friendly family/staff. Location wise is convenience. I book like 1-2 mths advance only
If not that cold, we can just sit a the viewing point to watch stars at night. About 10 degree
What u mentioned above I all got it at winlu.

Plus steamboat dinner included.

seems like u never do tax refund before.

this is because if you consume in taiwan, u got to pay tax. something like GST.

so the custom may ask u to open luggage or bag to show them the new products, so they know u r bringing out of the country to use it.

yeah, it's my first time doing tax refund in Taiwan

I'm just curious, since I've done the refund and got back the money, how come still need to be subjected to checks? the reason I'm asking is beside some of the things I bought are bulky in package, I want to remove the packaging to allow me to squeeze more stuff into check in baggage. then I was told not to open the packaging despite having my tax refunded

You need to check in and then proceed to do tax refund with receipt.
Even though you got the money, some how they expect you to bring on board.

Yes quite rediculous.
But nvm, just tell them u checked in liao.
They understand.
