They have wine(DRINK) shops all over. You can also go to the Hypermarkets for the wines - prices reasonable. Hey Taiwan Booze is cheap in retail supermarkets - JW BLACK about NTD700+ only. Cigarettes cheapest in asia on the retail, many brands NTD35 per pack, so if you are a smoker, dont carry your singapore's super overpriced ciggies.

Today is a blistering 33C !! Man is it hot!! NO rain in sight

Some buses have no Number-BUT LED sign-Jinguashi-Jiufen-Keelung

0830 - Take bus 260 at taipei main station to yang ming shan. Take bus 108 for internal route to YMS. First stop at XXXX (Cant rem the name). Walk around 45 minutes to some pond area where they grow something like lilies and Walk around 45 minutes back to bus stop. Tiring but luckily the weather is damn cooling. Much colder than genting i guess. Second stop to xiao yuo ken (guess i spell it wrongly). At there 810m above sea level, the fog is so thick and visibility on road is around 5m. Was tempted to climb to the top (1010m above sea level). But gave up as need to walk ard 1.5hrs up the rocky stairs. Take bus back to YMS bus station. Eat lunch at the small eatery there.
1300 - Take bus to xin beitou for hotsprings. Went to Springs Resort. Nice atmosphere and worth the money. Please take the free shuttle bus from xin beitou to resort. Dun be like me walk about 30minutes to reach there. So tired.
may i know how much is the hotsprings? do we need to bring anything for this? thx.
