Hi guys,

Can anyone recommend the "best" hotel in Ximending area?

Intend to treat my family, so budget wise I'm okay, probably in the SGD 200+/day range.

Thanks!

Correct or Wonstar:

With your budget, you can stay in their suites as location, service e.t.c. is really nice at both the Hotels.

Well, thanks. Call to book a room . Wanted the NT1280. But was told there was no more, only left with NT1380. Confirmed booking, minutes later received another call frm them, saying NT1380 rooms aso no more already.. Only left with NT 1480. Duno whether true or not. No choice but to agree cos price doesn't really diffenence much.

I stayed in songshan, zi yuen motel for 1100NT Per day. It has a double bed. that rm can slp a 3rd person for a small fee.

if u have 4 ppl, can take their 1380NT room.

Stay there is good cos it is very near to TAipei main station. walking distance. so can save a lil on fees. on the day u intend to leave, if u have many luagges, 75NT can get u to Taipei Main station,

take Guoguang ke yun, to Tao yuan airport for less than 125NT i think only remember quite cheap la.


edited:

Zi yuan have a 980NT room. it is a double bed rm. apparently double bed rm is their standard. cos i was in various places in taiwan for 10 days. thsi seems to be the case

Chaiyi --> Alishan --> Yushan

asking on behalf for my frd...

1 ) Direction from Chiayi Train Station (TS) to Alisan, What is the possible and recommended mode of transport to Alisan from Chiayi TS?

2) Alisan to Yushan From Alisan how do we get to Yushan? The nearest visitor ctr is Tataka? from tataka we can trek to yushan? How long is the journey from Alishan to Yushan?

3) Generally, what would be the recommended days of stay at the different stop,i.e, Alisan and Yushan, if just for the purpose of sightseeing

4) Recommendation of lodging for Alishan & Yushan?

5) Is it possible to get to Sun Moon Lake from these places?
Thanks a lot!

1) Recommend take alishan bus from chiayi to alishan. NT$200 per way. this is the fastest mode of transport

2) Alishan to yushan is only possible via own transport or arrangement with hotel in alishan. Alishan is crawling with operators tht cant wait to take u to yushan, tataka

3) I believe trek is only do-able if u join one of their trekking groups. This needs advance planning & booking.

HI,
Yushan website: Your have to apply for a permit to hike at Yushan.
http://english.ysnp.gov.tw/
Firstly, New Central Cross-Island Provincial Highway: the Chiayi---Yuli section (Provincial Highway 18)
75k 21k
Chiayi─→Alishan─→Tataka Visitor Center

【Transportation Communication Network of Southern Park】

http://english.ysnp.gov.tw/Publicati...eID=42&Level=1

To get to SML from Yushan, your friend has to head for Puli from there to change bus.
I am not sure on bus routes in that area.
