You got to be kidding. Every 7-11 store in Taiwan has vending machines that dispense cash via Cirrus. I have been using that to draw cash via my POSB ATM card.
I think there is a small fee for that.

Hi, I'm planning to go Tainan and Gaoxiong for 3 days each. Any recommendations for these 2 places to go? Thanks in advance.

What's the diff? Money changes also charges more than the actual exchange rate. But being available in all 7-11 makes it easier to get cash. It's 24/7 and in Taipei 7-11 is EVERYWHERE.

LOL

The difference is that they charge more than money changers.

If you feel money changers are not needed, then why the existence of them in the first place? Why don't everybody rely on atm card? Think about it.

Convenience is one thing. Getting a better rate is also another thing. They are two totally different issues.

If you are in Singapore, it would be stupid to use your POSB ATM to withdraw from OCBC, UOB ATM. Am I right to say that?

If you still don't know the difference, then time to learn it.

Fine go find one in Taipei. The fee is small enough. I bet you haven't tried withdrawing it from the ATM. Forex is only available in selected banks and operates during banking hours. I'm not carrying a huge stack of cash. Clearly you know very little about Taiwan. What an idiot.

Relax, Don't let people undermine your maturity level by scolding people who have corrected you. LOL.

I have withdrawn $ from different parts of the world including Taiwan to know that. The fees issues apply everywhere and this fee is much higher than the fee/profit of money changers.

Anyway, people's concerns is about finding a money changer in Taiwan because they want to get a better rate. By asking them to withdraw from ATM over there is not addressing their concerns.

And if you do not know Taiwan well enough, there are many places (although unauthorised) in Taiwan offering better exchange rate. So bank is not the only place to exchange currency.

Understood?

No wind or rain today, quite warm as well. Cloudy most of the time in Taipei but sun came out a bitin the late afternoon. Everything back to normal. The City Govt did a good job cleaning up the city within a day.

Back in Taipei...everything back to normal.....no news of any upcoming typhoons as of right now, so shouldnt be a prob if you plan to go Taipei or other cities like Kaohsiung, Taichung etc...but Alishan, Toroko gorge etc will not be possible.

Typhoon has already left Taiwan and moving northwards brushing against China.

However, there will still be rain and wind for the next few days. The temperature may also lowered to around 20 degrees from 12 oct - 14 oct.

I think 15 oct should be better weather already.

You can read yahoo.com.tw for updated news regarding krosa typhoon
