ic... no wonder you just spent SGD2098... is only 5D4N!

but we are going 9D8N over Kaohsiung and Taipei, so all our expenses will be 90% more than yours, set aside SGD2000 each person is just nice.
Not about 5D4N although it plays a part..Your Jetstar already cost $250 more than what i paid for..We nv went for 1 day taxi guided tour in Taipei, instead we brought 3 days public transport tickets and travel by BMW thruout..Well, i prefer walking around with my camera...

My gf got lots of clothes, bags, shoes, facial mask and also present for her cousin,sister and me for my nephew and nice + some bags and clothes..

Planning to go back next year...

Glad you enjoy yourself... your other half is still a gf! Mine already married for 10 years and pak tor for 10 years before that. We are not a couple of young adults with strong legs to walk long distance. Our Jetstar cost more due to my height and size, we opt to pay $240 more for extra leg room for 2 paxs return.

Unless facing a strong cold front from north, temperature will drop to below 15 degree. I would suggest to bring a 2 pcs fleece jacket with a waterproof windproof outershell, you can just wear the outershell with LS T-shirt, if temperature gets too cold at night, just wear the fleece under the outershell. Try not to expose neck to coldness, so use a scarf or a buff.
