For those taking the freego bus, do note that there are days whereby its not a direct bus, and will stopby somewhere, and u have to switch to another bus( which happened to me....i checked with connie from Ts hotel that they do have such probs at times, and with the waiting time, i was out of airpot ard 1345, but reached ts hotel ard 1645...( really a nightmare), so those takin freego bus and jetstar( since u will arrive late evening) may have to take note.
Confirmed need to change bus when reached Taipei but not sure if it was only certain day tot.

I think maybe certain days the freego bus are direct and certain days are not. Anyway, I think the best is ask when you board the bus to confirm and i think it's no harm asking. Taiwan people mostly are all very helpful de.

Thank CubeFX. I will confirm after i came back from taiwan whether i pay for the shuttle bus to go to the spot at YMS.

Hi,
For most of you Singaporeans the weather might be a little chilly now as the Night temp is dropping to 21C for the coming week,It might be here to stay as Autumn is finally settling in. The Day highs are between 24C~28C.
Some of you might need a windbreaker or light jacket in the evenings , You wont be alone as some of the locals have already brought out their Autumn wear.


Hi, i'm planning to go ard 20-28th jan 08.. read from the net, e weather is pretty cool.. is it cold? any idea how e temperature might be? ard 15deg ?

no la.. i meant the bus fare for all the spots. because most of the spots are quite far apart from each another.

either you get it for a one-time and cheaper fare.. or pay separately at each spot.
