guys,

this time flying with family, baby and elderly, and wife.

that's why i wont be so adventurous like last time, my last taiwan trip was 4 years ago, everything forget liao


this time round, intend go taichung, and taipei only.
cannot afford long journey rides with a baby and elderly, thus cingjing, all those places cannot go.

as it is first time to taichung, mind sharing where is good to go for family outing and toddler under 2 years old.

is it worth to stay more than a night in taichung ?

cause my plan is once touch down at taoyuan airport, head to HSR straight to taichung liao, then see 1 or 2 nights there before HSR to Taipei
taichung 1 night will do.

depending what u wanna do. i bought many cheap high quality clothes at taichung-tianjin road. but if u dun speak taiwan, u dun get good discount

feng jia night market too overrated, nth to eat. cos the meat spoilt liao still sell....
if u 6 ppl, u hv to buy 6 meals if u eat in a store. fengjia has enter into my black list.

lastly taichung many roads is up n down. not suited for old ppl.

highly recommend u to have breakfast at 2nd market, their braised pork n trotters. #1 u dun even find similar quality in singapore or JB
i settle my dinner at 3rd market.
make glasses also cheaper in taichung - owndays(taroko)

6 person in a restaurant, must order 6 meals is common.
Some have 抵消費.
Min order.
U must look at menu as well.

Hi all

Plan to visit Taiwan for the first time around the first week of march.

Plan to go for 6D5N.. Is it enough? Just to shop, eat and enjoy what Taiwan has to offer.

Scoot is about $320 per pax.

Is staying hotel or airbnb more worth there?

Thanks in advance

Hotel is safer.
Bnb is cheaper.
Take ur pick.
Price 320 a bit ex.
250 will be good.

hotel in taiwan is quite affordable. for airbnb, please check whether they have insured the place, else anything bad happens like heater-gas leak, u'd have to bear responsibility.

I'd stay in a hotel anytime in taiwan.

Sent from Xiaomi REDMI NOTE 4X using GAGT

dun need to try.

jetstar is strictly 7kg. everything in the bag is 7kg, that include ur laptop, coat and a book.
7.1kilo is also heng suay. they only accept up to 7.03kg
the jetstar ground staff also dun wan to be so pendantic, but llst their policy is like that, infact they close both eyes if u can "wear" the excess on ur body
