FutureStar:
Forumer Boonzz reported:
futurestar is no-frills and quite newly renovated. i have no complaints about my "sleep" there. i am out most of the time... for S$60-100, our only requirement is that it is clean, no damp or funny smell, no sagging bed and no creepy crawlies running across my legs at night

For those who would like to stay in Jioufen fora night:
for jiufen, i i was too keen to unload my fullpack and stayed in a mingsu which is just outside the entrance to the old street:
http://www.9fen.twcom.net/
i took rm302 which i reckoned was the best for ntd1200. it's small, clean, with attached bath and the view was decent (overlooking the bay). owner stayed on the 2nd floor and there is a quad room on the 4th. the rooftop is empty though, i dont see any seats/table as shown in the website.
i would have preferred staying within the old street itself. found subsequently many mingsu's within the old street with available rooms for the weekday. most charge around ntd1000-1200 for weekdays and ntd200-300 more for weekend. if i were to do it again, i will still go during tues to thurs, check out the rooms/views before i book. if the room no view, at least the rooftop balcony must be good.

Dear all, im most probably going on a 'shopping' tour and a lil sight seeing., but im too sure about the relative vicinity of the different places. So im having abit of difficulties in planning my intinerary. Hope bros who are familiar can help.. Below are the places i hope to visit. Im staying at TS hotel.

1) XMD
2) Shilin
3) Wu Fen Pu
4) Raohe Night Market -> Anything interesting? Else i will skip it.
4) Mirammar -> what do they have there? The website doesnt seem to say alot.
5) Taipei 101
6) Ding Tai Feng
7) Yu Ren Ma Tou -> Heard the evening scenary is good
8) Guanghua electronics

Anywhere that you think i should visit? Im only there for 4D3N..

Thanks all..
