hi peeps!!

i'm back from Taiwan!!

i had a fantastic time there and encountered the mega typhoon!
it didn't deter me from anything, in fact, i'm really amused as i've never experienced a typhoon in my life.
really an eye-opener.

i did lots and lots of shopping and ate like there was no tomorrow!!
Taipei really has a great variety of food!!

i took 300++ pictures.
those of you interested to see my Taiwan pics, feel free to visit my blog.
i even posted pictures of the destruction the typhoon caused
and of course, pics of lots of the delicious food i had.

special thanks to people like nuttyazn, delphinus, nakedtoes who answered my queries and who alwayz never fails to post valuable information regarding Taiwan here

you guys made my trip awesome!!
sorry how to view yr blog? ..

hey if anyone is coming anytime soon I can help with infomation...Ive been here for 2 months and will remain here till end of the year...just drop me an email at fongalv@gmailDOTcom


[QUOTE=nuttyazn][QUOTE=darkest_matter]
2nd day: Beitou Hot Springs///DanShui///Shilin Night Market
3rd day: Hualian 1 day taroko gorge tour///XiMenDing again?!?
4th day: hoping to go Sun Moon Lake or YangMing Mt. early morning and get back by noon for 1520 flight...is this possible?!?!?

if Im able to extend to 6 days, will shops even be opened on new yesrs eve and new years day itself?
if I can extend to 6 days, what other places do u guys recommend? jiufen/jiufen minsu? yeliu? jilong? yangmingshan?
Im actually VERY gian for Alishan but its kinda tight if I squeeze it in right?

Hi,
Suggest you spend more time in Danshui and do Shihlin another day. I dont think you can eat that much Just look at Jerbelle's excellent Blog report of her trip I too feel like going around again after reading her blog Maybe Next weekend

3rd day, After Hualien Tour, you can try another Night Market : Gongguan NM. Also nice and again a different variety of stuff and food.

4th Day: Yangmingshan would be better as it is in Taipei - Sun Moon Lake is in Taichung so dion a trip to SML and Puli would not get you back in time.

Western NY here no value, all shops open BUT it is celebrated in a larger fashion here with BIG Street parties and all the Stars of Music, TV and Movies show up, going from venue to venue performing . It is a great atmosphere.

If you do extend your stay, Keelung, Yeilou, Jioufen can all be done in One day.

hey thanks alot!...ive seen the maps and it seems like keelung and yueilou dosent seem to have much but JIUFEN!!! after seeing Jerbelles blog im super gian liao...

hows alishan arh dosent seem like a very popular place with those who went FnE...

Thanks again...this thread rocks!

a tip for all.

send an email to tbrocsin@singnet.com.sg, stating the areas you're interested in and your postal address, they'll send you maps and also the tourist pass as mentioned above. you can browse through before reaching taiwan and save making a trip down personally.

i requested for taipei and hua lien info, and i received in my mail box a few days later:
1. taiwan map
2. northern taiwan map
3. east rift valley map
4. eastern taiwan map
5. eastern coastline map
6. tourist pass

very efficient service. and it's all free.

hi, read from the past posts that Leofoo village theme park is about an hour plus away from Taipei then how about 八仙海岸 Formosa fun coast? And 劍湖山世界 Janfusun Fancyworld is in Kao shiong? how long will the trip take from Taipei? thanks!
Check my post for Discount Coupons and Youth. Many Theme Parks giving discounts.
