by the way is it safe to go taiwan now...
Ofcourse, no problems here at all.

Cooling down a bit at night so it is really comfortable for those that walk a lot.Still not "Cold" weather, that should come in Jan / Feb.

wat is the average temp by mid dec? i'm going from 6th to 12th. intending to spend 4 days in taipei n i day in taichung (just for the sake of buying taiyang bing). Wud a jacket be enough?

As i'll be arriving onli by 10pm on the 6th (ya i know, the timing sucks), can anyone advise by which transport modes can i get to taipei from the airport? wud taking a taxi be veri ex as compared to buses or trains. money wasn't realli a problem since i'm working although a cheap alternative wud have been better.

your 24th quite fierce leh... think you will be shagged like hell after the up/down journey on bus. maybe you can put danshui to 25th and go there around evening before proceeding to wu fen pu etc.. juan si waterfall also quite shiong...cos get down bus liao will walk far.

yang ming shan too many spots la... if you just see and go.. it's very fast... if you wanna explore and walk walk a bit... then different story... places like qing tian gang, etc are quite big... for 3-4 spots... normally is from morning 8+ up to 12noon+ like that. if go waterfall.. you can peng... i think must climb hill one. lol..

so what i think is ...after yang ming shan.. you all should be shagged liao.. then can go makan or hot spring.. then walk walk a bit evening time can go dan shui for sun set...

then don't go chiong ba... put next day.

Hi,

How long does it takes from me to travel from XMD to the Airport?

If I have a flight back to Singapore at 0900hrs, what time should I leave XMD?
