Actually I would feel safer if they took some kind of deposit from me. But since the others here say it's standard practice, I'll just trust them.

Have you booked your trip? Why don't you try calling them again? I found that that different receptionists have different versions of the room rates and availability!
I've booked Friends Hotel already. Not as popular as Onestar or Rainbow but I think ok la, quite near to Shilin

Hey guys, i have a suggestion.

For those going taiwan soon, why not we all post down the exchange rate for the day.
Since all of us staying in different areas, we can have a rough idea where offers the best rate.

Prehaps we can list down our findings in this manner ..

1) Area of exchange (eg. Sun plaza)
2) rate (eg. 19.3)
3) date (14/12/05)


Cheers

Parkway Parade
19.0
13.12.05

My sis just checked and informed me that Crown Exchange #06-01, The Arcade has quoted her NT$19.45 today.

I'm changing next week, hope they offer better rates.

Hi, if I have some USD at hand, does it mean it's more favourable for me to change direct to NT$ when I reach Taipei?
