Hello people!
im back frm my 6d5n trip from Taiwan.
ha!. first comment is that Taiwanese are VERY polite and helpful.
you wont get lost .just ask around for directions and they will be more than happy to help you out.

well 1 bad pt is that the road system. T_T
i got several heart attacks while crossing the roads.
the green man still on the motorcycles still can whizz pass lol.

i went to taiwan frm 21-26 nov.
80% of the shirts were LONG sleeves.
totally unsuitable for sg climate xD
so if u wan short sleeves hav to peel ur eyes open dam big .

shihlin nite market --> many things to buy and eat . nt bad. the shirt quite trendy n cheap. but different ppl different opinion on fashion. then beside the nite market got 1 very big food centre lol. can see many taiwan gals

wufenpu --> i dunno issit me or when i go dere 80% of the shops sold woman stuff. lol totally nt gd for me =.=

ximending --> the bugis junction make alike LOL price ard the same. but here u can find some items sg cant find. dun expect to find cheap things here unless u go those auntie shop den can bargain abit =x

guanghua --> the simlimsquare look alike. here. u can find many IT products. i nt it savvy so i dunno the price but i kno alot it products can give it a try. and also can buy many cheap comics. i bought inuyasha 1 bk for SGD$3 nia. sg sell $5++ for each ??

national palace museum --> go if u like those jade and procelain and whatnot. but i literally fall asleep in dere.

armory museum --> nice in my opinion. many old and new guns. then can see the first president of taiwan some of his belongings llike his clothes and medals.

fireworks79, thanks for your help the other day, i found a road map to " shijou shiang " .. happen to pop into sun moon lake website and found a road map tht show tht area. i post here, mayb some1 wants to go shijou too... hahahaaha, maybe 1 in a million.




found a 10 seater + driver vehicle leow. Will set off from taipei to 'shijou', than to tai chung for the night, any good 4 or 5 star hotel to stay over in Tai Chung, near shopping/ night market better

The next day hor, going back to taipei, anywhere to stop between tai chung & taipei for some tour/ attraction stop over to recommend.

our family group, 2 small little kids, 2 x 60's, 5 x 30-50yrs. dunno which place suits all leh..

How about Hsinchu. One thing everyone loves is food and Hsinchu is famous for it Bawan, Gong Wan (Meat balls) and Mee fun. ALl available at the many shops next to the Hsinchu Railway station.

Finally figured out What is "shijou ' We spell it as Xitou or Citou or is it really someother place:
