Hi guys, some questions here..

1. is it safe to travel from Jiufen back to Taipei at night?

2. we'll have to take a bus/cab to RuiFang to catch a train back to taipei - anyone knows what's the last bus available?

3. from Kee Lung/Miao Kou to Taipei, if we do not want to take bus, train available?

thanks alot!

From miao kou, can walk to keelung train station and take a train back to taipei straight.

Yes, Exit the Station, turn right walk to the bus stop near the curve (You will know when you see it ) or ask someone once you are there. For correct bus, just read the LED Headboards.I think the direct fare is NTD90/- per head.

anybody visited yeliu before? is it easy to get to yeliu from jiufen? please advise, thanks!
Actually we prefer to go to Yeliou first as it opens at 9am. Then to Jioufen via Keelung by bus.By the time you get to Jioufen later, all the shops etc will be open and a bit more lively. Then we return to Keelung by bus for Miaokow Night Market and more snacking.

Hello!

my friend and I are going to taiwan this Aug...ticket book already
now the problem part is the hotel.

we thought of kingmammon /金財神商旅
http://www.kingmammon.com.tw/main1.php

Q1) it seems we need credit card. Just to check will debit card do?
@2) it is all right if we go direct without making any reservation of rooms for any hotels? (meaning go to hotel direct to book the room once we reach there)

any help would be apperciated...

- is there anywhere where i could play with fireworks in taipei?
- also, i'd like to release the pingsi lantern too, would it be available in august period ? (as i have read that the lantern festival is in march period)

thanks!

Minsu is cheap and good if you are on a budget tight trip, also cheap and good if you just need a roof + bed overnight and you usually out the whole day. Some minsu offer washing machine so there is no need for you to bring so many days of clothing.
