Help Help....

Hi, I am planning a trip to Taiwan in the second week of Oct. Hope you can help me with the following:

1) Rainbow hotel is fully booked now. Are there any good hotels in Ximeng Ding area to recommend? Is Kilin or East Dragon better?

2) Is there any celebration on the Taiwan Independence day on 10th Oct? Like fireworks or parade?

3) How do I get from Taiwan to Taichung? By train? Do you know the website to buy the tickets?

Thanks lotsa!

Qilin is not bad except for it location( Not as near to MRT station as rainbow). BTW, Qilin breakfast is more edible compared to rainbow

2) Reported on Taiwan TV news that there will be parade in front of the Presidential Palace. The official also put in budget for the fireworks.

Cheapest way is Go to the Taipei main Station, There is a shop called EEC. Buy a International Phone Card -MKY Brand-safe and clear.NTD265/- for a NTD300/- card. You can talk for about 1hr and 50 mins.

Local Company calls about NTD8.7 per min compared to just under NTD2 for the MKY Card.
