Wah..looks like some history education tour..maybe u'll like to tell us where ur hotel is (starting point), then probably can have better planning? But still hope u can come up with ur own itenary then ask us for pointers... i believe these 300 pages covers almost all of the places u wanna go...
actually i been to taipei before and i been visiting those trendy n shopping areas...therefore this time i wana go and visit their historic nature...
the ting is i do not know where thses places are located therefore i cnt plan my itenary..hope u guys cn understand...sori..
i will be staying in rainbow hotel in ximenting..

Di Hua St is nothing much , like Singapore Old Chinatown selling Chinese medicines, foodstuff e.t.c. We only go there during CNY to buy nuts and stuff but now they have competetion from Dept stores so No need to go so far either as prices not really far off.

hualien is definitely worth going!!! esp this period.. the weather there is great.. i seen beautiful waterfall in taroko.. if u r staying for 2 days.. a stay in a minsu will be nice and get a tour guide to drive u ard for the 2 days.. as recommended byt he forumers here i stayed in the stone house minsu and the tour guide arranged by the minsu owner.

longshan temple is a nice place to go if u r interested in historical sites...

Hi,

Just wondering when is the recording for jacky's Guess x3 in August.

Also, does anyone know when is the recording of another Jacky's show "Qi Tian Da Shen" in August?

Anyone with info, kindly advice..

Thanks in advance!!!
if u r interested in the guess3 recording, i will advice u to gif them a call and leave ur name and number.. coz if on that day alot of ppl go for the recording, they will gif priority to those whu call in and make reservation. (thats what i did for my grp of frens - 8 ppl)

i juz went for the recording on the 31st july 06.. so a rough gauge of the next recording will be the alternate mons after that. but it will be easier if u call in and check coz there might be changes.

i think 1k is overkill...unless you are treating everyone all the time.....

shopping and eating...i think one person max ia abt SGD600 for 5 days....

Did you at least spend some effort reading through the latter part of the thread?

Then in terms of charges and usage which one will be better and cheaper?
I could make at least 2 calls back home during my 10 day trips

You can top up the card if you think NT$99 isn't enough.

It does get a bit tiring after the first 3 days,doesn't it?? Anyway, those places you missed,you can do it on your next trip.
You did Wufenpu and Raohe St twice!! Nice, heh!!

there is usually 2 recordings in 1 day but its not always... first from 1 to 430pm i think and the second from 730 to 11pm.. u can go either one

each recording is 1 episode and they dun allow ppl to leave halfway... and try to reach half and hour before the recording starts.. so if is 730 start, reach around 7..

haha.. yea.. it gets pretty tiring after afew days.. esp when there's travelling out of taipei.. so advice to forumers here is not to plan too many things in a day. .better to enjoy urselves than to rush around trying to meet the itienary. can put some slack time towards the end so that u can revisit some places that u may feel like gg back again..

wufenpu and raohe is juz too big to finish shopping the first time round (at least for my gf).. haha..
