well, the biggest mistake i notice SGians tend to make wif TW traffic is assumption that one-way road is one-way. make sure u look both ways for 1-way too.

i think tw must go try all the lu bian tan, ye shi (nite market) and xiao chi.. the foodcourt imho is not as appealing... otherwise steamboat is good during this period (they have way better steamboat than us)...

Bowled over by excellent service in Taiwan

THERE has been a lot of talk on service quality in Singapore of late. I think substandard service can generally be attributed to lack of empathy, lack of pride and professionalism in one's work, improper training and insufficient top management commitment.

I am bowled over by the excellent service in Taiwan rendered by staff in such wide-ranging industries as health care, food and beverage, retail, travel and environment.

Medical staff, in particular, have so much patience and empathy. They try their best to minimise pain and anxiety, and even cheer the patient on during uncomfortable procedures.

More than once, eatery owners were concerned when we could not finish the food we ordered. They asked if it was because the food wasn't to our liking. There is no doubt that quality and customer satisfaction rank as their top priority.

When we paid for a tour package at an airline office recently, the officer felt bad having to levy a hefty surcharge on us during the peak Chinese New Year period. She kept verifying the amount with her colleague to ensure she did not overcharge us, and actually expressed regret for having to do so.

Even people in unglamorous jobs, like the garbage collector in our estate, are utmost professionals. He greets and thanks the residents everyday, and always seems so cheerful.

The contrast in service standards between Singapore and Taiwan is quite stark. It mainly boils down to treating customers as human beings who have needs not unlike one's own, rather than faceless digits. Taking pride in one's work is also important, as is training that emphasises problem solving, flexibility and enhancing customer satisfaction.

It goes without saying that great service is what sets one business apart from the rest of the competition. The value of a satisfied customer and the importance of word-of-mouth advertising are often not given due attention in Singapore. I believe our service providers can learn much from the Taiwanese in this respect.

thanks so much for the info.

Since the to and fro trip will take abt an entire 8 hours, as such, would it stilll be possible to do SML in one day from Taipei?

As in, take the earliest Green Transit bus from Taipei Zhongxiao Fuxing to SML, and then latest bus from SML to Taipei?

If it is possible, what time is the earliest and latest bus?
Does the bus bring you straight to SML or do i need to transfer to another bus?


Also the fare NT830 return trip...does it mean to and fro ticket costs NT830 altogehter?

thanks in advance for the reply...

Anyone to advise on my query?

thanks
