Is Riverview hotel in Taipei nice?
Agree with Nuttyazn, quite far from Metro.... especially if you are not driving....

Thanks thanks for your advice!
Is there any other hotel around Xi Men Ding (besides Rainbow) that is under 100 SGD per room per night that anyone would recommend?

Thanks!

2) How long does it takes from Taoyuan to Hualien by train? (About 4 Hours)

Thanks for ur suggestion

I got somemore questions:
1) Based on Day 2 - 4, which day do u tink i need a cab most? Cos I am thinking of booking a taxi for only one day to save cost.
2) I would like to visit Mao Shan where i can ride the cable car, which day do u tink i can slot in, Day 2, 3 or 4?
3) In Hualien, u got other recommendation of homestay cos 2000 per night is a bit steep...I got the website for hualien homestay but too much info, dunno which one.
4) Do u tink i can cover all my Taipei places w/o a taxi? I am willing to wake up early.
5) Any comment abt Burgary Hotel? From the website the pics looks good, worthwhile to stay? Cos I wanted to stay in a better hotel for 1 night.

Once again thanks in advance for all the bros who ans my question......

Hi, needed some help. I'll be travelling to Taipei from 29th Apr - 3 May but call TS Hotel just now and they are all fully booked all the way to 1st May.

Anyone can give good recommendation for twin sharing room around Ximenting area for abt NT$1680 per night?

Btw, how can I get from Taoyuan Airport to Ximenting? Heard that by cab quite expensive.

TIA for helping.

Between 12:00 and 18:30, there's a bus called Freego which takes you to Ximenting, though sometimes need to change to free shuttle from Freego's Taipei Terminal in order to get to Ximenting. Before 12:00 and after 18:30, please take KuoKuang Bus to Taipei Main Station, then taxi to Ximenting.
