And possibly more expensive.
at this point hard to reduce price due to petrol pricing

Orange hotel, cheap but room very small, breakfast only toast.
Via Hotel, slightly higher price, room bigger, no breakfast but got free foodie.
Yeah i enjoy my 4 nights at via hotel, room size ok i still manage to fully open up 3 big luggage and still theres abit of walking space
And best is that i stayed at 2nd floor where the free snacks/drinks are
Location is very good, less than 2min walk to the main street food area at night

Hi can i ask some qns about shopping district in Taipei:

西門町 is it like our bugis street? I check online opening hour until 11pm, true for shops and departmental stores selling cloths/accessories?
What about 五分埔? equivalent to where in SG
Lastly, what's the equivalent of Orchid road in Taipei?

Thanks.

Ximengding is akin to bugis street plus plus.

Wufenbu, i see it as similiar to bugis street (less makan) and alot of wholesalers. There's generally 2 parts to this place; one to cater for individual purchases, one to cater for bulk purchases (where they don't entertain individuals).

As for orchid road equivalent, 101 and vicinity?

Hope this helps!

Actually, question is, do u need check in luggages? That should be your question.

Service wise, taken both before. Find it ok.
