thanks nutty!

think i'll consider taking the greenbus since the 1st bus is at 6am and it is stated clearly in their website that it goes directly to SML, no need to change bus at puli. But will it be faster if i take train to taichung train station, take bus to puli, then change to nantou bus to SML?

I thot all these places: SML, Puli and chingjing are all in Taichung? Fengjia is far away from these places? If so, think I'll just skip it.

I have limited time to shop in ZhongXiao Dong Road.

As such, can you suggest the best section of the Road for shopping?

thank you
suggest you start from SOGO and walk down the streets and end at Zhong Xiao Tun Hua MRT.

Actually you can book online. I booked my hotels online.

I just got back from Taiwan and stayed at Rainbow Hotel. It's 1580NT for twin, with B/f. Location is fantastic! right in Ximending. The room is good too, clean and not so old. Stayed at Guoguang hotel for first 2 nights also. It's not as good as Rainbow, but for that price, it's still alright.
hi which website did u book rainbow?

I wish to purchase the freego bus tix from Taipei to KaoHsiung, but the link on their website is not working. you guys know if can email / phone to book instead?
Freego online not working.. i tried before.

You can call this number: 886-925-993-720 and check out. They will tell u to purchase when you reach airport. Exit on the right of arrival hall and turn right again walk to the end and you will see them at the left corner. Just buy straight from there, 1 trip is NTD135. They also dont encourage you to buy return cos afraid you will miss the bus or they are not able to fulfill.

Freego bus from airport will drop us off at Taipei Main Station right?
Any way to avoid the rally to get to XMD?


Vivian Hsu is having an autography session at Taoyuan Tonlin shopping centre.
It's near Toayuan Train Station. If dun take train, wat bus can we take?
Also since we are there, any attractions to visit in Taoyuan?
You can request Freego to drop at XMD straight, just let them know when you buy the tickets. They will drop at the designated hotels (Tashun Hotel, Rainbow Hotel & Wonstar Hotel) in XMD.

climbing?! we nearly died from climbing this trip.

nutty intro jinguashi, we climb & climb & climb. In the end, too tired & too late to search for the golden waterfall. then alishan, we also climb & climb just to make sure we walked all the trails! then south hualien, there's a nice temple with a tower situated rite on hill top. we tot since there liao, might as well.

think our next trip we decide to target seaside liao. hopefully lesser climbing.

the fresh muah-chee in hualien (zhen-ji) is really v. nice. the packed ones not so good.
hahaha, we never go Alishan so never climb, miss the Jinguashi waterfall cos the goldmining is close, we did climb up the nice temple at south hualien.. a good training.. very nice view on top...

apart from Zhen-ji (hand-made), we did try the Ah Mei muah-chee (original) also not bad.. in fact, i bought alot of rice wine & spirit back.. Zhen-ji allows u to try and i bought it in Ah-Mei cos they deliver the stuff back for you to Taipei hotel with NTD100 fee which is cheap esp when you bought alot and dont want to carry yourself...

It was working a few days ago.. Maybe you want to wait till their server comes up. Or you can consider other hotels in the area. I am going to stay at Tashu this time.
