hi, how much is yr 6d5n trip? free n easy?
Well actually that time also had the promotion 2 to fly for the price of 1. But in the end too late so end up taking jetstar one way more ex so total is 338 including taxes. Then the hotel wise I booked TS hotel for 5 nights which first 2 nights is single room then the last 3 nights are double room. Cause I am travelling alone so total is ard less than 300 if converted to Taiwan dollars which roughly estimated to be 620 like that ( due to the inavailibility of the rooms I was given double room for the last 3 nights for NT 1280 only as single room price per night is NT 1080 only)

For me staying at TS hotel, i have an early morning flight taking off at 740am, if you were in my shoes, which would u take, freego or guo guang bus to airport?

around what time should we reach airport before takeoff to check-in?

All the freego or guo guang buses returns tickets can be bought at a counter at the airport when we arrive in taipei, am i correct?
bro, gg TW again?

the safetest bet is to rch 2hrs b4 take-off.

i belive u can. But last time i bot my return tix at Taipei Main Station Bus Terminal.

Miss Liu (石頭的家 ) has updated her website with photo of the new Minshu.

The garden is quite nicely designed, though no great view at the surrounding. The rooms looks nice and the bed is very comfortable.
