can the easy card be used for all kinds of buses, even those outside taipei? like those hualien bus, nantou bus etc... coz' will be travelling from county to county or long distance within the same county. saw that some bus fares come up to hundreds, not sure if can use easy card to deduct or they require buying some sort of separate ticket or pay cash (like those airport shuttle buses to taipei)...

While there, you can check out the most uniquely-designed restaurant in Taipei - 伍角船板.
It's just 3min walk away from Miramar.

I plan to travel from Taipei to Sun Moon Lake and stay one night at Sun Moon Lake
I still have another day to spare, where should I go?

Hualien or Taichung or any other good places near by?

Comics in Taipei

Hi all! Have been a silent reader for quite awhile now.
I previously read that we could get cheaper chinese comics in Taipei, but I cannot seem to locate that post again.
Where can I purchase comics in Taipei??
Thank you!

hey pple. need some help. i understand rao he night market is some distance away from houshanpi metro station. any other way to go dere with less walk other than taking cab? can our metro card work with song shan train station?

thanks alot
Hi
You can take the Train to Songshan Station using the Easy Card.
It really depends from where you will be going to Raohe St NM.
If you are near the Taipei Station, then the train is convenient.

If you are near the 101 Bldg, then a bus 611 from outside TWTC Hall 3 can take you to Raohe St NM directly or 284 to Wufenpu and Songshan Station, just crossover to the other side .

KHH refers to Kaohsiung right? Which shop or street to buy cheaper camera?
and if it's like olympus panasonic all that, do they have international warranty?
I in Taipei, go to Hankow Street (Camera Street) off Boai road near Ximenting
to check out prices.
I think some shops in Guanghua also carry Digital Cameras.

Camera Street

Guanghua Electronic Center
