Hi ,
I think it is about a 10 mins walk from your Hotel. Ask the Hotel to give you directions:
Add : No.61, Sec.1, DiHua St., Taipei City
6am ~ 8pm
Tel: 2558-0346

For bus to the Airport from GG Hotel,Best you head for Taipei Station Area:

NEWS: Finally The CKS airport will get it's name changed in the near future TO: Taiwan, Taoyuan International Airport. It will save time for me explaining to people that the Airport is not in Taipei!!!

It will be a hot week with a bit of rain.
Taichung Hotel: No, But other forumers do. Still recommended.
Nice starting a family.

I have a son ,now doing NS in Singapore.
I run my own small trading co Nothing special but it keeps me in Taiwan, love this place and the people.

I think it's possible to visit Kaoshiung in Oct, as the superspeed trains would be in operation then. Heard from my Taiwan fren that they are opening the stations by Aug. So Taipei to Kaoshiung would probably take only an hour +. But I dunno the prices though. The trains are operated by the company that runs Shinkansen in Japan. Should be quite ex.


Hello guys, as this personal Jordan mention that there is so call superspeed train will be operating in Aug is that true?????

My comments as below :

Day 2 (Fri)
- yang ming shan
- beitou hotsping
- danshui
- miramar, shilin night market

You prob. can visit Danshui Old Street after lover's bridge, Fishermen's Wharf (I assume you are going there) then afterwhich you only have time to go Shilin Night Market which open till late.

Miramar Shopping Center, I'm not too sure how late it will open till. For this you can put either one place into your Day5.
Hi genkisan,
Day 3 (Sat)
- ding tai feng
- cks memorial
- sun yatsen memorial hall
- guanghua 3c
- shinkong mitsukoshi, newyorknewyork, elitesbook, taipei 101
- wufenpu
- raohe
I'd do: CKS,Guanghua, DinTaiFung ,SYS, Xinyi District, Wufenpu and Raohe. in that order.
Thanks chuan3205 & nuttyazn
