hi all, this is really a great forum for those going taiwan!

i'm thinking of going taiwan this dec... have some queries...

1. i'm thinking of going by jetstar. how do you guys find the plane? is the leg space bearable? will is be very cramp for the 4hrs journey?

2. i seen the iteneries of some ppl here... they seem to go to taipei then go to quite far places... is it convenient to travel round? or shud i just stick to city area? cos i'm thinking of going yangming shan, hot springs, taipei101, the ferris wheel, CKS memorial, nite markets etc...

3. any websites which are good n informative and have maps of taiwan?

4. between One Star and Rainbow, which one u feel is better? eg, the room decor, location, overall feel of the room... cos at the end of the day just hope to relax n have a gd rest in somewhere comfortable n not a place tats dirty...

Thanks!!

guys

Woudl i be able to cover Matry Shrine in one morning?

From Taipei Main Station., how do i get there?

is it a worht while visit to go there?
For Martyr Shrine, 1 morning good enough.. it's actually a 1-hr event... where u see them change duty on the hour time itself.

From Taipei Main station, take train to Yuanshan station from Exit 1 and cross road to Taipei Soccer Stadium Bus Stop. Take Bus Red 2, 21, 208, 247 & 287, all stop at Martyr's Shrine. From here, you can take the same bus back to Yuanshan or you can take the 247/287 back to Taipei Main Station.

The guard duty there is really fantastic.. they are so smart.. better as compared to CKS Memorial Hall.. Check out u-tube posted by me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU1okKkVwWc
I got 6 videos in total.

I remembered nuttyazn mentioned 1 website for the new maps coming up.. maybe he can advise again.

The Miramar Entertainment Park is a new-age shopping and entertainment complex built with the idea of offering enough consumption and entertainment options to keep visitors occupied for a full-day stay. The most striking feature of this park, which was opened only at the end of 2004, is a 95-meter-high, 70-meter-in-diameter Ferris wheel that light up at night to add a strong touch of romance to the Taipei skyline.

Ticket Price for Ferris Wheel: (Sat)~(Sun)
(General)NT$200
(Discounted)NT$150
(Mon)~(Fri) (General)NT$150
