Nice infor on the bus.
Going to taipei on 13 may.

I think the hei wei yu was shown in the jacky wu show more than once already.
I saw it twice. NT1500 per piece right. Too expensive for a student like me even if a piece $10 sing dollar.

Just came back 1 week+ ago from resevist training,n i have

:bounce:
you sure kaohsiung is better than taipei? I was there in kaohsiung for 1 yr. Everytime i go taipei i will shop till drop..

Anyway.... There is a bus from the airport to the taipei railway station. Think alot of company also have eg Freego, Tunglian..... etc... Either you can take cab to the jiao liu zhan(expressway exchange area) and take more bus option.

Yeliu is quite nice.. Can go Dansui( local produce + food ) , Wulai (hot springs), Keelung( see,see).... Yang ming shan in taipei for scenery.

If you are shopping in taipei... places to go include the entire stretch ftom zhong hsiao tun hua to zhong hsiao fuxing. 101 plaza too.. Off course Ximenting too.... Can PM me if you need more help.

Thanks guanoe for all the info

[/QUOTE]I am abit blur on this can you let me know what you trying to say? you mean there is a lot of bus company at the airport having this shuttle service from airport to the main train station in taipei???

btw, how is the MRT system? easy to use? it is crowded and super pack like HK/Tokyo in the morning?



Yeliu is quite nice.. Can go Dansui( local produce + food ) , Wulai (hot springs), Keelung( see,see).... Yang ming shan in taipei for scenery.

So from wha you say my understanding is this:
- Yeliu....... what kind of area? (shopping/eating/indoor/outdoor/special???)
- Dansui... food and local goodies
- Wulai .....hot spring
- Keelung ....see ?? special is it??? mo mo cha???
- Yang Min Shan ....... mountain lah
- Zhong hsiao tun hua....... the long long long road right?

if you can give us in relation to what type of area relative to singapore that will be best bro

ok qns by qns...

once you come out of airport. outside the arrival hall got one side for taking cabs and one side for taking bus. The bus will come at regular intervals. Look at their sign pasted to say go taipei. Can ask the people if dont know. Pay for ticket on the bus.

If not can take cab to tao yuan jiao lu zhan and take aloha or more bus to taipei.

Yes.. Dansui for real nice bbq food.
Yeliu is to see rock formation. quite nice too.
Keelung i haven been there so not much help but i heard is just a normal city to see. complete the taipei trip.
Yang ming shan same.


shopping....

Zhong hsiao dong lu is the entire stretch like orchard road. Lots of high class shopping and departmental stores. Alot of independent labels too.. must find hard. It stretches from from 3 mrts stops zhong hsiao dun hua to zhong hsiao fuxing. (names of mrt stops)

Ximenting for more lower age crowd.. something like fart east shopping centre type and annex level of heeren

101 area is super upmarket type like A/X and DKNY type.. lots of chio ppl here

Shih ling Night Markets lots to eat and buy (go at abt 10pm to 3pm)

You got accomodation already? I can recommend this very cheap but stilll consider good to me. NT$700 a night for single. Near Central Railway/MRT stop.

As for the MRTs... wont get lost. Very organise like singapore one. Not as crowded as japan subway. But becareful dont confuse the railway for MRT.
