Many people stayed in RC. No Problems reported. About 5 mins to Ximen MRT .Take Freego bus fromAirport Direct to RC>Fare NTD135/-

Royal Castle (Chengdu) Hotel
http://www.ncznhotel.com.tw/chengdu/intro/all.htm

Are you a guy or gal? any gals going with you? Some places a must for gals but not necessary if only guys going.

Is it recommended to book thru the above website? The price seems to be much cheaper than any others ive seen. Im planning to go in august and looking at RC too.

anyone got info on Delight hotel, seems to be in nanjing East road

not like the usual XMD hotels, anyone can comments on it room and location?

agency say this is a free upgrade for us, paid royal castle price for this, not sure if this is better

but they say this is supposely more expensive than royal castle, hope there are no pitfalls in this

thanks alot!

Gunaghua should be cheaper than SLS as there are too many local manufacturers of components and the prices are tight. Guanghua caters especially to students , so prices have to stay low.
New location. MRT Stop Zhongxiao Xinsheng > Exit 4 > Turn right, walk to second junction , turn left , walk 2 mins to new location along Civic Blvd..

Many forumers just call up the Hotel in Taipei by phone and book directly. Very fast and convenient.

Need advice on Aug Taiwan trip

Hi people,

I need some advice on the following queries:

1) Could anyone be so kind as to help me find out if there is gonna be any recording for
Jacky Wu's GUESSx3 between 18th Aug - 27th Aug

2) How's the weather in Taiwan like during Aug? Is it very hot?

3) How do I book for a train ticket online for Taipei to Kaohsiung?
(I found the website but the online booking page seems to hang on me
everything!! )
or would it be possible for me to grab the train tickets on the spot for the next day
travel?
And is anyone here familiar with the different classes they have in the train? I would
prefer to take the better class....so i could take a good rest on the train....

4) How many days should I set aside for KoahSiung? Is there alot of places to visit? Is
4nites in Koahsiung enough? Or is it an overkill!?

5) At the moment I have decided to visit Taipei and Koahsiung....Could anyone suggest
other interesting places to visit in Taiwan? I am gonna spent 12D/11N nites in
Taiwan.

6) With regards to Hot Spring, I am interested in those in Bei Tou/Xin Bei Tou. Is anyone
able point me to a website where i could book the hotspring stay online....plan to stay
there for 1 nite...

Sorry for posting so many queries....but first trip to Taiwan.....very blur la....

Thanks to all you kind souls in advance for your advice......

goofball >>> I went to this hotspring recommended by those here & its great. They have a free shutter bus to pick u up from the MRT also.

You can go check it out at http://www.springresort.com.tw/_index.html.

I went for the GuessX3 recording on 10.04.06. Although the recording's on every alternate Mon, sometimes they might have a change in schedule & Aug is still a few mths awae so its v hard to say whether the recording's on onot. You gotta call them few daes before your departure dates to confirm.
