Monique Chen from Taiwan Visitors Assn(Singapore office):

Also pls note that Tourist Pass we have in stock is expired (till June/06) and there won't by any further issues since some shops/restaurants stopped the cooperation with us.

Hi, I'm new to the forum... just signed up a few moments ago. So glad I found this very useful thread.

I'll be heading to Tainan in the first week of April, but have no idea which hotel would be a good place to stay.

How does Tayi Landis and Evergreen Plaza compare to each other? In terms of rooms, convenience (for access to food and transportation etc).

I'll be taking the high speed rail from taoyuan to tainan. How far are these 2 hotels from the railway station? would it be expensive to take a taxi from the station to the hotels?

Thanks!
quite a far distance.....
cab will coat u a few hundred NT......

Hi, I'll be there from 4th April for 11 days, its a super long trip and we're two girls going free and easy. Any idea where to club, and where to go to find those 24 hr megabig webcafe that has shower facilities and books and stuff that I saw recently on tv? =)

dun think so..cos the high speed train station is quite a distance from the normal train station...
unless u 1 2 take the normal train....cheaper but also longer time
most of the normal train stations r located near the city....
