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.
actually i emailed tbroc@tbroc.gov.tw for those brochures and they have mailed me the following

1. Northern Taiwan Map
2. Southern Taiwan Map
3. Taiwan Tourist Map
4. Taipei City Travel Guide
5. Taiwan - An island of infinate variety
6. Taitung travel guide
7. Tainan - touring historic
8. HengChun - easy go
9. Travel Map of Kaohsiung
10. Taoyuan sightseeing guide
11. Jiaushi
12. Kaohsiung City Tourism Guide

but i missing the tourist pass!!

They may nothave it there!! I go pass the Tourist Info booth at least once a week at the Main Station to see if anything new there And I just saw it Yesterday and posted the info same day. Look for it on Arrival at Airport - Ask for it if you cannot see it. That is why I posted the covers for you.

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!!
can adv the add for the hotspring u go in Beitou .. and how to go there?
