Hello guys,

I will be going to Taipei on 30th Dec to spend my NY there...

Just some qns:

1) Is there any temples that is a most-go? I wish to visit one or two but dunno which one is worth going

2) I understand now Taipei is in rainy season and i really helpless abt it. With this kind of weather, can we go YMS? And wat cna we do in this kind of weather? I am planning a wet weather iternary now...

3) I will also be photographing stuff here and there with my DSLR. So wwhere is the best place to capture the fireworks or fireworks @ Taipei 101?

4) I am a first time traveller. My friend whom is working @ a travel agency booked EVA Air for me...but it seems to be a e-tik as i only received a receipt and some documents. So how do i check in properly?

5) Hot springs : Do I have to make advance bookings , like a day or 2 before i plan to go there? And any hot spring recommanded for couples and near YMS?

Thanks!

Thanks!
heya,
haha just realised i'd prob be gg on the same flight as ya~!

Anyone have any idea what is the cheapest rate that Ta Shun Hotel offers now for a two-person room? Do i have to book over here first? Is the price fixed or negotiatable upon reaching there?

Sorry, first time travelling to TP. need some advise of this. Thank you!

just come back from Taiwan... hehehe... quite a nice trip... the only sad thing is that didn't plan 1 more day to attend the countdown party... though xmas should have some celebration but nothing happening there...

the best place is jiufen and taroko... generally easy for ppl to do FNE...
