If we buy the FREEGO bus for both ways...how do we tie up with the company on day of departure? is there a number for us to call or do we have to settle it when we buy the tickets?

What is the operating hours for the shops in XMD and taipei main station?

How long is the journey from XMD to Beitou?

Approximately how long does it take for two adjacent train stations? 5 mins?

Weekend open longer, say 2am? Normally 11pm they will close shop.....

XMD to Beitou journey is bout 30-40mins using the MRT.... Just tried their hot spring last Saturday, nice, no as smelly as YMS....

Lastly, distance between two station varies, so no definate timing.... I walk from Taipei 101 to Chong Zheng memorial about 45mins-60mins.... Enjoy the stroll, can see more of the cultural and buildings...

Just back from TP yesterday.

Bought freego return got 30NT discount. 135 + 105

I just let the hotel staff know my return date and time..they help me to call freego and confirm.

BTW i stay at Future Star..i can say TS is newer with LCD tv. Future star not bad but we stay at the 1380nt room..so just next to the counter.Abit noisy. But overall i wont mind staying at future star again. Really at XMD itself..everytime after shopping. can just go back to put things and freshen up for the next spree..hee

Glad that someone is staying the same hotel as me. I will be staying at the 1480NT room. Any Safebox and approx wat time did u reached the hotel?
Where did you alight when u took Freego to the hotel. Did you tell the driver to inform you , or is there any particular road to alight. Will be going in 2 weeks time.
And anyone knows where is MiaKow Night Market?Thanks alot guys!

Safebox i didn't ask lah..i think quite safe to keep yr belonging in yr luggage if can be locked. At Freego counter just let the lady know u going to Future Star, they will inform the driver. Coach will go around few hotels to alight passenger.Driver will announce the hotel name and ask who is alighting,so no issue ba.i reach the hotel ard 7.30pm cos the coach went to other hotel first.

dont think there is safebox inside the room, but i left my stuff there everyday for the whole week, nothing happen. as for freego, just tell the them which hotel u going, they will send u there.

MiaoKow Night Market is at Keelung, i took the train frm the taipei railway station, took about 40min.. the night market is near MacDonald, u can just ask the local there, they will give u direction, abt 10min walk frm Keelung railway station. Alot of nice food there imo, lol.

Hi MUfc,

Thanks. Most likely will travel outside Taipei. Cos last time did not took train travel to further places.. Only travel within the MRT area.
Is keelung is recomended place to visit? Or other good places to visit.I dun fancy jiufen cos only to go there to see rock formation. (correct me if im wrong)
Still can recall to alight at which station to keelung?

Rock formation is Yeliu...Jiu fen is a nice place...sorta a upslope alley where u can try alot of snack and buy some back to singapore too. If u are tired , u can go to any tea house there to enjoy tea and look at the scenery. i find it quite a nice place...the munchee there not bad. ice-cream popiah and mixed/fish ball also nice.
