for budget, ppl take train from taipei to kao shiong then take the coach from there (take about 3hr).

For comfort, there is a new internal flight started last year which flies from taipei Song Shang airport to Heng Chun airport near kenting, then from there, depends on which hotel you book, you can telephone and asked them when is the free shutter.
hi thx for ur advice, btw, i heard from my colleague that taking a coach to kaoshiung is much faster than taking a train, but since i have nvr go to taiwan before, can anyone here give me advice on how to go about going from the airport to the place to take coach?
I doubt there will be a direct coach to kenting, thus i am worrying bout how to go from kaoshiung to kenting in the middle of the nite, cos i'll be reaching taipei ard 5.30pm, by the time i reach kaoshiung, it'll be almost midnight, is there still coaches available at that time to go to kenting?

thx in adv to all!

watched the news on ch 52 today, it is snowing in many of the mountains. Taiwan seldom get snow, and March is not supposed to be so cold. This year is exceptional.

When I was there on New Year's eve, the locals were all very excited about the snow falling in Yangming Mountain. I was in Taipei and the night time temp fell to 5 deg C or lower, very cold.

Well, judging by the posts here, most of us just book our own air tix and hotel. It is easy and especially with the LCC, the airfares are cheap and you can choose your own hotel and find the best rate available on the net.

Talking of taipei, can anyone tell me which month is the cool season and which month is summer? So next time if i visit there, at least can choose to go during summer. Also wat is the exchange rate like? SG can change how much NT?

Thanks for your prompt reply. If i were to ask your opinion on whether should i choose to go during cool season or summer, which is your preferable? And is it as cold as in genting, cos i notice most ppl wear couple of clothing, like sweater plus additional shirt, some even put a scarf on their neck, is it really that cold. For your info, i last went there is during army days and didn't get the chance to feel the cold so no much idea about how's the temp like.

Seems to me their exchange rate is similar to thai baht.
