I'm thinking both, 4days each? cause TS & Rainbow so highly recommended and ximending shd be fun.
Is there any hotels near the station that forumers have stayed, cost around TS rates?
u gotta check the check in/out time of both hotels. some might have very late check in time then u gotta carry ur bag to where ever u go. actually, unless the hotel is an attraction itself, i dun think u need to hotel hop lar.

600 a bit tight i think.

say SIA promo tix $348 plus tax ends up around $450+. tht leaves $150. lodging say cheap one like TS NT$1680 = $80. tht gives u only 2 nites max. still hv not include food & transport.

u talking about US$600?

with such budget, hostel is the choice, around $10-$20 a nite, i think. but it's still very tight. and unlikely to fly SIA.

Seems like there's not much casucal/surfwear shopping over there, morever no inlineskating shops..would like to check out wad accessories they have overseas..

MIGHT change destination to Seoul instead.. =(

Windcor: Yups, going with deardear! I wanna travel by SIA but he prefers jetstar >,<"

Anyway, if I were to purchase tix via Jetstar webby, approximately how much would the tax, fuel surcharge come up to? THanKs!

oic..thanks! That's the trade-off for the cheap rates i guess. So 2 way $119+$169+$110=$398/pax, reasonable enough..
