wa's the appeal of this brand ah? last time ghost Taiwan c many locals carry including xiao lian & it's not cheap leh.... this type bag back home only uncles carry leh
For me the quality is really good. I purchase my first shoulder bag ten years ago until now still in good quality. At least 30-50% cheaper to buy from there and not only uncle carry leh so many people carry at CBD also.

Dear all,
Have a few days (2 to 3 days) available to be spent possibly in Tai Chung.

Am looking to go to these places, thus need inputs:

1. Cing Jing Farm. For the children to see the farm area. Possible to have a one night stay.
2. Sun moon lake. For the elderly to see the lake. Not that keen to stay a day there. Just want to do a day trip.

Would like to seek inputs on how should I travel for this arrangement. Thanks alot.

ok thanks! hope these extras are not to expensive
usually built-in GPS are more informative (e.g petrol station, food) & may be useful for exploration local area
Gps wise if u need , need to request.
We did fine with our mobile google map.
Usually all the extras must pay.

Used google maps n it was great. The tolls are auto (e-tag) n u pay when u return the car. The tolls are quite cheap.

Cingjing farm is a good choice for kids and elderly too. Sheep show is only on weekend , so if you go on weekday will be a bit boring.
Cingjing, best to stay a night there, then morning go cingjing farm, skywalk, carton king, rest for lunch then continue to others attractions.
When you book minsu, rem to check if they provide free transport to attractions area.

Sun moon lake, just go in the morning, can complete without staying a night there.

You got kids and elderly, book a driver for these two places, save you time and trouble.

Actually i prefer not to charge my stuff using car cigarette plug.
Advisable to use powerbank first.
That is a back up.
Highly suspective of the stability of current output.
