Yeap that's my plan for taipei...Guess actually 5days enuff for this city alone.
Hmmm i wld highly recommend Rainbow. Very near MRT STN. Very good and big rooms too. Though a little pricey as compared to the rest, but well if ya willing to go to a place like taipei, ya shldb willing to spend. No point saving on these kinda area. If possible arrange a tranport for urself
from the airport to the hotel or vice versa. Trust me u wun wanna travel around with all those luggauges...it sux...Btw for triple room it costs 2180NT/night,double room costs 1980/night.& yah taipei
is damn hard to get lost,so dun worry about how to get to this area and stuff...
food wise, i would recommend the illegal mobile food stalls along hsimending...infact they taste better then places like dingtaifeng...& also if you are at shilin, try IchiBan Beef Steak
i would say better then Jack's place...The name of the dish is called Fei dunno wat Niu Pai.

I took jetstar...nothing gotta do with the airline...They are value for money
Jus that some cock mistook my gf's luggauge and took it back home...Guess she/he is a
taiwanese cos the nxt day he left me a voice message on my hp and returned back to my
hotel...Phew ...

If you are not travelling in a big grp like me, you will have even more time... for me i already considered this plan as quite relax liao...
& a point to note ... if you have 4 gers and above ... best is not to put the gers in the same room ...
get another room, split em up so that there is enuff time for everyone to prepare emselves b4 going out...mine was just nice...everyone took an hr to prepare. i put the 3 guys together in a triple room.
me & gf in a double room and the other 2 gers in a double room. it mayb a little pricey but for the sake of comfort and slp, yes it is worth it especially when ya travelling ...

Noprob man!haha quite lucky truout the whole trip...everytin was too smooth...
like eg. when we are waiting for the bus, jus nice the bus arrived when we reach the bus stop
...weather was very hot but better then raining ... theres a bit of drizzling but luckily wufenpu got shelter...and oso my gf's luggauge was been returned...most of e time chances r slim...the main thing is dun let everyone walk around aimlessly...tink the only time when its quite aimless is the taipei metro mall...

but the location is abit too far from ximending...... so i intend to stay 6 nights @ mei shiuang, n 3 nights @ new moon.....

the most important thing is to stay within walking distance to mrt and surrounding got breakfast... change hotel halfway u will need to moves things.. waste time and energy.. stay new moon all the way lor..
