Luggage is actually cheaper in Singapore if you compare by value. Anyway cheap or expensive luggage both also got chance to get thrown by airport crew. If not traveling often it shouldn't matter

I would usually buy a reasonable one, not those expensive ones ...
like u mentioned, you would feel heart pain when u see your expensive luxury luggage being thrown out and swing around ...

For minor damages, such as scratches here n there, usually the travel insurance and airline companies wont compensate ... Unless big issue such as handle dropped off or cracks etc ...

Ideally should not combine. The theme park is enough for one whole day of fun. Check out the link below.

And ask your boys on whether would they be interested in it.

The park is very big.. Land and sea.. At least a day for me..

True true. Don't have a die die must go Night Market. Their night markets are generally, go because you will enjoy it for night activities.

Taipei alone has a few good ones, on top of what was recommended.
