they only ask for my name thats all.. i think all hotels like that.. saw other forumers also not required to give credit card no or anything.. just name.. anyway, call them 2 days b4 the trip to make sure the room still reserved for us, guess that will be all right..
yupz. rainbow's procedures also like that...juz give them ya name can le.
guess its all based upon trust.

Haha ... no. However, i think it's always good to have alternative plans especially if you are not the impromtu kind of people.

If you are in Taipei, head for the Underground malls at the Taipei Main Station. Plenty to keep you occupied.

Surprised to hear that. Most people found them to be alright. Anyway, you can get a good Taipei Map here from the Tourist Info Counter or From the MRT Info Counter. . They must have run out of stock of these in Singapore. .

I saw wonstar is quite far away from XMT. Rainbow is right smack in the middle. The hotel I stay in is Chengdu is like 5 mins walk away from XMT. They got internet access and it is totally free.
