hey cameltoe, which airline did you book? your airtickets already cheaper still say expensive ah. which period you going? which airline and what period can get 400dollars ticket for 2? where got so cheap wan?

We're travelling from 19-24 dec 07. we got our tickets from jetstar at 496 per pax loh. Eva air having promo now and the air tickets about the same price. About 30-50 dollars more. but sold out for the period we want. so no choice lah.

not considering SQ at all. it cost way way more loh. a few hundred more per pax. two pax is quite a substantial amount. rather spend on better hotels.

hey irvin, i suggest you book soon leh. super peak tickets normally by the time promo comes, most tickets are sold out wan. left not so good dates/times or only limited seats thats why got promo on such tickets. actually can see how many seats still available on jetstar wan. just check online as if you're gonna book air tickets. can request seats online. then you can see how many seats left.

we booked a few days ago. Just ONE day after we booked, the fare went up 10dollars. It'll keep going up nearer the date. so better book early. =)
Hi,
just booked jetstar today to taipei end Jan 08 with promotional price of S$196/pax return ($98 each trip). BTW Jetstar SFT (I paid S$123/pax), does it include both Sin & Taipei Airport Tax??. Do we need travel Visa?? First time travel to taipei with wife, so don't know the procedure of budget airline. Anyway, have yet to decide on the hotel booking, pls recommend some hotel that's near XMT or shopping belt with convenience access to/fro airport.

Question

Hi,
http://www.gocityinn.com
http://www.taipeionestarhotel.com.tw
http://www.wonstar.com.tw
http://www.neijiang-hotel.com.tw


Actually TS has become very popular. I was there a couple of weeks ago booking rooms for my family, there was a real large group of HKers leaving by Freego at that time. (I thought it would be better to put my folks in a Hotel, clean rooms, aircon e.t.c. better than my house!!)
Hi nuttyazn,
first time to taipei and may book TS, just to know if freego stop infront of TS hotel or need to walk some distance after alighting. tks

no need apply visa de. u both singaporean? holding singapore passport den dun need, singapore passport is so called approved visa liao. not like china ppl go taiwan need apply visa! haha.

jetstar website wen u book, u juz follow e instructions steps next.. den they auto calculate for you together with tax liao no worries!.. den choose a seat, my advice u dun wan stuffy, choose near the emergency exit, more leg space. n plz haf ur early lunch first, coz food on the jetstar SUX n EXPENSIVE! den by e time u rch taipei already 545pm, not much time to eat dinner quite rush liao, so eat full full hor.

i recommand u TS, 2-3mins walk directly to ximending only. their prices now very wu hua! i just came back, i stay 3rd floor =x lol. they havin half price promo! nt1680 only for my superior deluxe suite(i forget what suite liao la, u chk on their website), originally is nt3360. i stay 7daes6nite, total 11,760.. cheap approx sgd$550 plus minus ard ther. oh btw plz call early to book ur room, now hot period.

i plan most of my stuffs 3-4mths before, so i got my air tix cheap n hotel rm not a problem wif e vacancy .. plan ahead is e best! no need stress n worries. cheers.

Hi zichuan,
tks for ur info. I've already settled the airfare, most likely to book TS, btw do we need to pay upfront for the hotel booking, will they accept credit card for the bal pymt upon check up. Is it easy to exchange SGD/NTD there? For travelling wise, do they have day pass for MRT/Bus usage - this trip is mainly for shopping and try out their traditional foods, itinery would check further with you guys again.

i have booked my air tickets from Jetstar

27/12/2007 - 03/01/2008
2pax $794.10

quite a good deal as now there is a promotion if u travel between 03/01 to 29/03 2008 but must book before 30/09/2007

previously i calculated e price to be at $982 for e same period, lucky neber gan cheong.... hehe

now gotta look for hotels and plan my itinerary
