i'm going taipei from 15th to 22nd Oct.

1. i want cheap accomodations (below S$50, preferably around S$30) for a single traveller. don't mind hostels, but must be clean and safe and convenient.

2. anybody going there at that time and want to join up for a hualien trip?

i think other questions can be answered by going through these pages slowly again. regret not taking down notes the first time i went through.

Hi, i'll be going to taipei from 25th dec to 1 jan 06.
Staying at rainbow hotel.

Like to check with those who stayed there before. Heard that the hotel provides internet? Is it every room got deskop access to internet or what?

Cos my camera got limited memory card. I think not enough. Wondering if can access to any pc there to transfer out the pics from my memory card to my portable hdd.

i am considering this 2 hotels which offers cheaper rates than rainbow

1) sunlin hotel
2) mei shiuan hotel

My concern is location. Is it very close to xi men ding like rainbow?
Or any other hotels to recommend?

Hi. Got my tix at SGD720 for 6D5N stay at Rainbow on SQ. Is it cheap?

6Oct - 12Oct.

Anyone got any idea how do I get back to the airport on my last day as my departure time is 7:10am. Meaning to say I must reach airport pretty early. Any transport means/ideas?

And also :

NT$ = TWD right? Abit mixed up with this.

Thanks a mill!
