think all the image links are not working.
in any case...

who have tried before 明日大饭店 (future stars)? what about 国光饭店 (good ground)? how is it?
would living near xmd area or taipei main station area be better?

To nuttyazn:
the flowers hotel link doesnt appear to be working. any other urls for flowerS?
国光饭店 (good ground) CMI.....i think the outlook is worst then Mei Shuian...

understand that rainbow or onestar and those 100bucks region hotels have no safe in their room..
so do u guys prefer to carry passport yourself? or is there a safe at the reception? what bout cash? walk ard with a all of your money?
we carried passport with ourself.... n all the cash (around 20K NT)dont worry is as safe as singapore... if u are not sway....haha.....

go free and easy should be cheaper no matter whh agency u book with?
juz read thru this thread frm pg1 and u r ready to go w/o any tour guide
I checked at airfares.com.sg the cheapest 3D2N is about S$530 per person.
Then I check JetStar Asia (S$385) and WonStar Hotel (S$85) website, total S$470 still much cheaper.

I wonder NATAS in March can has better offer? Else JetStar seems to be the cheapest air ticket.

国光饭店 's room is not very big. A very basic hotel just to stay for the night.
Got free internet service at ground floor but use ur own notebook.
Counter ppl relatively friendly when i was there.
Very near to xi men ting mrt.
Outlook of the hotel sure does not look good at all.

Near xmd or taipei not very important lah. As long as the hotel is near to a MTR station will do.

Hi, I am from Luxury Tours & Travel Pte Ltd.
We have global connections with Taiwan and Europe.
We can provide the transportation and the best 4-5 star accomodation is Taiwan.
You can choose to use a limousine or mini van for shuttle.

If you want to take a cheaper transport outside the airport,i would say its not really safe.
The taxi drivers would dress up and represent themselves as part of the hotel for pick up
and then charge you higher from there.

For us we have private ushers to our own fleet of vehicles

for more information

Please call Stella Sim @ 6733 2808
