I see, how about quakes? Are there are any specific months where it seemed more likely to occur?

Sorry for all these qns, first time planning trip on my own with gf. Need to be doubly sure.

1) After booking the airtix, do i just print out the e-tix online? Thats it? Im taking Jetstar.

2) The plane will land at CKS Airport at Tao Yuan right? How do i get to my hotel (Rainbow)? How much would the cab fee cost?

Thanks all!!

Won't be able to catch the Jetstar package liao. GF passport expire and won't be able to book in time, esp with the new Biometric passport. Crap. Extra $100 fly.

But we are still going!

I almost forgot to add this : I also dine @ DTF. I know Spore do have DTF, but Taipei's branches are better in quality and service...

Rainbow is recommanded by quite a no of pple due to its great location @ XMD. However, U might need to bear with the noise and crowd during late weekends...
i oso dunnoe y so many ppl like stay at rainbow, yes it is rite at d center of xmd very easy n near to mrt . last time mi n my frd oso wans to stay at rainbow but due to my frd dun like d noise so we switch to royal castle hotel which is oso near to xmd.
Best thin is when u take FreeGo Bus fr airport to hotel , it wil stop at Royal but u hv to walk inside to Rainbow coz there is no road outside hotel hw to stop d bus. N durin last day we hv so many Lugguge n bags we onli hv to wait outside our hotel , if i nt wrong those fr Rainbow hv to walk to d main road to wait for d FreeGo bus, carry so many bags stil hv to walk......

In my last trip, FreeGo bus stop at East Dragon Hotel, which is very near to Wonstar Hotel. Not sure about East Dragon but Wonstar is clean and good.

The 2 hotels are at the edge of XMD so not noisy.
