From the 31st of July 2007 the old NTD500 and NTD1000 will no longer be in use.You can change old to new only at the bank of Taiwan after that date but who need that problem.
So when you change money in Singapore make sure you get the new bills only if you are going to be here after the 31st.:

Oh no we just changed notes 2 weeks before going to Taiwan , some might be old notes.

hey, just back from taiwan a few days ago ... anyway, just to share my experience over there. my sis n i did the usual stuff which most ppl did, n also some which are quite different.

1. farm stay at 头城 www.tcfarm.com.tw. quite fun and special. can read up on the activites for the 2d1n package on the website. back to life as a child

2. squid fishing, flying fish catching and white water rafting, which they called 泛舟 over there. we did it as a package from 海鲸号 www.seawhale.com.tw. a fun and new experience. manage to catch a squid which 's abt 20cm long, which is consider average. rafting was fun, although it'll be better if there's more water. it was also long, lasting abt 3hrs with lunch provided in between. great value for money

3. cold sauna 蘇澳冷泉 - carbonated water temp's around 20deg c, great during summer. if u r returning from hualian by train to taipei, u'll pass by the place and can go for a dip. can opt for hotel, public pool or private area. we just used the public pool and it's only $70 or 80。

4. coffee by the sea at 三芝, near taipei. our taiwan friend bought us there. there're quite a few cafes next to the sea and along the road. watch sunset, listen to the waves, relax ... simple but magical! of cos, it's easier to come here by taxi although there's bus service too. NB: there's some rubbish, but just try to ignore them ;-)

5. Fine dinning at 食养山房 at 阳明山. I think someone also post a pdf in this thread on romantic places to dine at yangminshan, which include this place. our taiwan friend bought us to this place. great ambience, scenery and food. there's no menu and u're served dep on wat they 've. For about $1000 per person, u can to enjoy many courses and 4 of us were very full at the end. i supposed it's very hard to find such places in spore, and at this price.

hope that these alternative recommendations are useful.

ya sure, if i've no intention of sharing, i'll just keep quiet ;-)

头城 farmstay - $2400-$2650 / person for 2d1n stay with all activities/meals included.

海鲸号 seawhale - my package costs $1550 / person + accomodation $1500 for 2. They also 've whale/dolphin watching which seems quite popular and also other packages.

hope it helps.
