Hi all,

I have been reading this thread and collecting info all along and find all these info very useful. I would like to know from nutty that I booked 2 rooms with Royal Castle Hotel which is a triple room and a twin room. I would like to know if upon reaching there can I change a room? It is because 1 of my friends not yet confirmed and supposedly there are six of us and will be goin to Taipei in 23rd of Sep by JetStar Asia. Another enquiry is that this thread did not specifically any info that where men or guys can buy men's clothes, wear, shoes? I would like to know if it is advisable to buy in Taipei compare the price in Singapore? Are Gundam models cheap in Taipei over there? If yes, where could I get them? Thanks.

Thou i had not booked from this hotel before, but i believe you can just do the changes at there IF THERE'RE AVAILABLE ROOMS. You can always call them up to ask again, one week before etc.

Erhm, IMHO, I went there and realised the fashion style of men's clothes doesn't suit me. Too beng/ funky/hip-hop?? If you are looking for formal wear, there're major shopping centres which I find the price not much difference. In XMD and Shihlin, prob what a guy can look out for are the various kinds of sneakers and sports shoes. They are slightly cheaper than here. I saw some Gundam toys sold in Miramar SC but the price wasnt any cheaper too.

Perhaps other forumers came across any shops with good bargains, do share with us

not really lei.for me case,i find thier men clothes quite ha-ri(jap) so i actually bought alot.of cos not all are nice to be honest...they are more err blackie rap(those whats up man) type than beng lah

Hi,

You can take a public bus from the bus stop just outside Hsintien MRT station to Wulai. Ask around for direction. There should be signs indicating route and destination at the bus stop. Confirm with bus driver if needed.

The bus should bring you to Wulai bus terminal. You would have to walk to Wulai 'Old Street' Lao Jie (abt 10 mins from bus terminal). After Wulai Lao Jie, you should come to a bridge overlooking a wide river. You should able to see a sign indicating direction to Wulai Waterfall by taking a mini train. Travel by this train takes 10 mins. Alternatively, you could walk or take a cab but I recommend the train.

It should be safe to go there in daylight. There is nothing much there except for the waterfall. You should go with your loved ones as it is quite a romantic place. It really makes a huge difference, trust me!

Shifen
- From the front of the Keelung Railway Station (will see starbucks and burger king) take a Keelung Bus to Ruifang. (NT50)
- 遊客可在瑞芳火車站轉車搭乘平溪線火車,在大華站或十分站下車,沿著鐵路步行約15分左右即可抵達十分大瀑布。
- Stay for maybe 2-3 hours

Tourists can opt to transfer to 'ping xi' line in 'rui fang' railway station. Afterwhich they can either alight at 'da hua' station or 'shi fen' station and tak e a 15mins walk along the railway to reach 'shi fen' waterfall.
