ur praying stuff is taoism or buddhism?
Wat stuff u wanna find?

Most temple got sell the generic praying items like incense sticks, incense paper, tea leaves, flowers etc. Unless u wanna buy special items..

There's a street next to taipei longshan temple sell a lot of praying stuff and status

If u want more buddhism items, go to 全德佛教文物.. Its at taipei 光复南路 which is inbetween 八德路 section 3 and 4

Taichung also have 全德(main branch), but i never been to that one

Is there any tAiwan coupon websites? Similar to Korea Trazy or seoultravelpass or even their govt official travel site has coupon for Travellers.

Any of such for Taiwan?
Or like Carousell where I can get theme park tickets at cheaper price? Am looking at Formosa cultural village theme park near sun moon lake

ixora2007 13-04-2017 11:15 AM

should be. But if its not, the expiry date is abt 14 days away from the day its baked (usually the day u buy or the day before)

calkel20 13-04-2017 03:40 PM

Oh yes, last week went 點水樓。
Ate their beef noodles, ask my wife worth it boh, she says ok la for that quality but noodles a little little.

You can buy individual pack from the shop. 1 mth expiration date for the standard pineapple cake. Those fancy ones will be much shorter.

Dbs in Taipei if you intend to change big amt.
Otherwise, bring cash and walk into any bank of Taiwan/Megabank will do.

thanks calken20! any service fee involved in changing in the DBS, Taiwan or Megabank?

if I don't have enough sgd with me and need to buy something, is it better to pay using my credit card or withdraw twd from atm machine?

Taiwan n mega no service charges in town.
Dbs min 100ntd or 1% whichever is higher.
If no money of course use CREDIT CARD la, u tell me what other choice you have?
You can withdraw but then have u activated your card for overseas withdrawal?

The way that you are asking a question here seems like you are seriously running out of cash.
