Typical money changer in TW is to head for the bank.
They accept major currencies as follow: USD,GBP,JPY,CNY and EUR.
For SGD, i usually go to MegaBank or Bank of Taiwan.

Hope that helps.

It's better to do all the changes in sg. In tw, you can only exchange from bank and bank are not that near to sg favourite places. Unless you want to change in tw airport.

Thank you the rate is good. Do you do the booking when you reach luodong or is it recommended to do online?

We were on a FnE.
But it's good to book ahead if you have plans ahead.
