Red face New to Tai Pei

Hi all,

I am very un-experienced in Tai Pei.

I have decided to go in June, pardon me asking alot of curious question because this trip will be my wedding proposal to my gf. I hope every informations given by u guys out here would make my trip and proposal a successful want. Thx...

I planned a 6d5n trip.

Main purpose of this trip is "Shopping & Food" plus a place where it is romantic for proposal. Reccomandations would be nice. Thx

What is the weather like in June in Tai Pei?
How do i go about booking the hotel "Ta Shun"? Online or arrived in Tai Pei then go there get a room?
Arrival at airport what i do next, cab to where? Departure from where to where etc..?
I prepared $3,000 for this whole trip including air tix n accomodation, enough?
How much is single room for Ta Shun etc..?

From all the places i noted down:

Xmd
Shilin
Wen fu pu
Raohe Mkt
Dan Shui
Zhang Xiao Fuxing
Taipei 101
New York Shp Ctr

Did i miss out any food & shopping zone? Please highlight more if possible for 6days.

But i got a problem planning a Itinerary although i got all the informations, because i dont know how to plan e.g day1 go where then day2 go where.. i scared not convienent, because jump location wait eat away alot of time.

My main focus is only Taipei.

Hope you guys could enlighten me !!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you i hope this trip a successful want for me and my gf. honeymoon~~~~~~~~

I hope experienced guys do give me a call at 9021 2320 calvin.

Thank you

Hi all

This is my very draft plan for taipei trip.
Not really wanting to rush and tire myself out.
Going with a friend along.

Not realli keen on museums, zoo, sightseeing, tourist spots etc
Any recommendations, improvement to trip arrangements welcomed
esp think might have squeezed too much in certain days

Cheers!
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

You may want to consider:

Fisherman's wharf in Dansui - an evening with beautiful sunset and nice sea breeze

Miramar Ferrywheel - when in the middle of the air, at night

June would be hot though. Good luck!

Not too sure about the water quality. However I would recommend you to get bottled water since your child is very young. You can easily find many 7-11 and convinient stores.
