Hi, going Taiwan during July, can anyone tell me what will the weather be like ? Cold or Summer ? What type of clothings are advisable to bring along?

Is the 'Fei Gou' bus service from airport to TaiPei free? Where is it located?

And anyone stayed before in KingShi hotel ?

Sorry this is my 1st time visiting Taiwan so hope i can get some enquires clear here.

Thanks a lot

Wow!! The Show is really big,Walked from 9am to 4 pm. Back there gain tomorrow. For those not registered, better to go to Hall 2 or 3 to register as the lines not so long.

King Shi Hotel:

Stila at TA Posted this in April 2006:
Stayed in King Shi Hotel (in chinese, its actually Jin Shuai fan dian). The English translation is not accurate at all! The room is clean and ok for NT1400 per nite. The website hotel photos are generally better than actual so don't rely too much on the photos. Distance to XMD mrt is abt 5mins walk. Hotel staff doesn't seem too knowledgeable on how to get to tourist pl like YMS but generally polite.

if I were to take a bus from the airport to the train station, i heard it's 1 time USD4 kind of ticket, is it true? or can use the contactless card one?

by the way, is Amex being widely accepted in taiwan? or they prefer mastercard/visa?
