Lastly go there first thing to get is the adult MRT pass. (aka the blue adult card in singapore. If student can also get the student card but only discount for bus. MTR is the same)

Here is my plan:

Hsin Chu - 3 days
Peitou - 3 days
Taipei - 4 days

How to go from Hsin Chu to Peitou? Is it very toublesome? (my idea is to take a train to Taipei and transfer to peitou) As Hsin chu is in the west coast of Taiwan... any other cities, I can go in the west?

Before you buy shoes and boots elsewhere, you should check out the underground malls Taipei City Mall and Taipei Station Front Mall

For Accessories: Houchezhan

Can I go to Alishan straight from the CKS airport? Ie to take a bus to the Taipei railway station and then proceed to take a train to hualian and change to a train route that take me up to Alishan directly. And for the accomdation there, can I easily find a hotel to stay overnight? Thanks.
Hi,
Alishan is in Nantou County NOT Hualien. You will have to spend the night in Chiayi and then head for Alishan next morning by bus or train.

To Chiayi, you have to take the bus from TTIA (Not known as CKS Anymore) to Taichung Railway Station and change to train to get to Chiayi.

The Youth Program will give you a Youth Card valid till Dec 2007 . It is free so it is worth the trip to the Youth Hub. With this , you get discounts at many places including some Theme parks.Bring along your student card.

I bought some ladies berms for my relatives at WufenPu and it ain't cheap at all..approximately 40SGD each...and guess what...the dye all came off on 1st wash back in SG..following that, my mum's skin became so 'blue'..Haha..

As for myself, shopped for lotsa bags there. Average cost abt 35SGD each..managed to grab some new arrivals which looks so like Bloodbros and i simply love the material and design!

The Youth program thingy, I filled up a form at the tourism counter at CKS airport, they gave me a booklet and bookmark...can get some discounts at listed places..not bad

waltzjy: Some adidas jackets are worth buying but Nike apparels on the whole are more costly. Purchased several pairs of Nike dunks from authorised dealers at Shilin night market. Check out their autumn series..!

Mainly did my shopping for clothes, accessories and 'cutecute' toys at Shilin and XMD..If u have a gal fren tagging along, can recommend Mei Hua Tai, near Wonstar hotel..I spent like 6000TWD there on my last day....Lotsa lotsa cosmetics and skincare pdts. xD Also recommend Cosmed!!

How i miss Taiwan..sighs..
