Which buses??
Those buses going to Keelung, Jioufen - No.
The Tour buses all have Loos in them- all Intercity buses going to Taichung, Chiayi e.t.c.

Yes it does include lunch.

Gng by myself.
Then it is fine, not being over charged as such.

For your IT items, to compare prices, check this site for Taiwan Price range:

Thanks for the link, just what I was looking for.

Sorry, I don't read much Chinese... is this an online shop or is there any stores/area in Taipei you can recommend to get some of those stuff. I'm mainly looking for thumbdrives and such. This looks cool...

Hi all, i'm back! Will be travelling in 1.5weeks!

Anybody knows where I can get the railway/train line maps in Hanyu Pinyin cos I can't read most of the chinese characters =\

Intend to visit..
Wufenpu
Raohe
Ximending
Shilin
YangMingShan
DanShui
YuRenMaTou
XinBeiTou
Taipei101 etc
Miramar

Thanks in advanced..I can't wait to be there!

only Jiufen,Keelung,MiaoKou located at keeling
at their train station, they got english maps as well
normally the deg is abt 16-20,unless there is a cold wind blowing down from china
then the temp will goes below 10deg
u can buy nice cothes at silin market,more cheaper

U can go to WufenPu esp on Sun after 4.30 pm. There are alot of girls and women clothes that u can shop around and very cheap too. If u are afraid of the cold then better wear a jacket as compared to Singapore it will be colder.

for casual wear,u can find them in silin or woman street
if u r looking for OL type or branded,can find them at 101 or taipei east zone
woman street is near raohe night market,walking distance abt 10-20min
it is a market meant for women,with 90% r women goods,lingerine,clothes,stocking,perfurm,etc etc
