Taipei?
一之轩 mochi is nice but very short shelf life
Pineapple tarts if u talking about famous, 佳德Chiate should be the most famous?

凤梨酥 is 佳德Chiate most famous but I still prefer juifen 老珍香
I like 红豆麻薯 - 红豆Q饼 from the airport, free tasting.

Is money changer easy to find in Taichung (near railway, yizhong, fengjia) and near Taipei main station? Don't want to change too much in SG since exchange rates not very good. Just want to change if I run out of NTD.

any bank also can, but i feel quite troublesome cos need to fill in some forms, can't rmb liao it's a while ago.

if you don't mind a poorer rate (ie u not changing a lot money) you can always go 7-11 or familymart any atm also can withdraw using debit card (mastercard/visa) which are found everywhere. even that time i go taichung puli stop at wrong bus stop in the middle of nowhere also got 1 familymart there as a lifeline

In tw, only can change from bank, and bank is not near to places like fengjia nm. I take taxi to Taichung HSR from fengjia, tell driver to stop at bank to change. Need to queue and write form.
I exchange most of it in sg, bring some spare money in sgd, when needed then change.

If you not changing a lot like few thousand dollar, in few days the rate wont effect you a lot.

Any banks.
Yes, queue change sign
No min sum and charges at banks out of airports.
If dbs, no min but there is a 100ntd or 1% charges off total amount, which ever is higher.
