received a few PMs asking me abt where to find more info on hostels.

U can find them either at www.hihostels.com or www.hostelworld.com

Most of these hostels provide pte rooms too. Check out for yourselves.

Shd be quite good. I heard quite a few positive remarks abt these hostels . Anyway will provide more personal views when i am there this 29 Jul 07.

Will be going for 9D8N.

What do u think of my itinenary?

29 Jun - 01 Jul 07: Taipei
Main places to go:
shilin Night Mkt
Hakone Hot Springs in Xindian
Ximending
Taipei 101
Huashi Night Mkt
Yangminshang
Most prob cannot finish visiting in so to be continued on 05-07 Jul 07Will continue to visit

02 - 04 Jul 07 Hualien
Taroko+Swallow Grotto
White water rafting at Siouguluan River+sight seeing
Paragilding at Luye (location may change if hostel owner can find somewhere near)
Was informed by hostel owner the above activities will take up alot of time liao.
