I just called Rainbow hotel directly for bookings..there's still available rooms.

Here's the number 886-2-2311-9193

Dial 018 before that if u're using starhub. =)

Well it got to depend actually like it could be raining or cold in the afternoon or morning so just in case bring jacket along it does help

Thanks Emergency! =)

Finally started to plan my itinerary, leaving nxt Monday and I've yet to receive my maps, brochure etc..sighs..

Some questions..

1. 24hr Eslite bookstore at Dun Hua South Road. Is this near Zhong Xiao Dun Hua? Planning to go down to both Dun Hua East and South Road.

2. What time does the 'Kuan Hua' Computer place open for business?

3. 'Tien Xiang Hui Wei' (Manchurian style Hotpot) and 'Xi Duo Wu' Buffet..Anyone knows where this is?

4. http://www.taiwan-vigor.com.tw/ How do I get here for the Taiyang bing? Sorry, I can't make out the directions stated in Chinese.

5. Lastly for now, =x Issit possible to exchange 2000SGD all in one go at the money-changer? Gotta start looking for one with good rates soon. Btw, heard that the exchange rate is quite good at CKS airport.

Puli has a wine factory I think and you can transfer to places like LuShan, Sun Moon Lake ( places in Nantou County) from there.
