Hi guys, do you have any recommendation for accommodation in kenting? There are so many "min su" in that area, so which one is good and cheap?
This website has many info on Kenting:

This hotel looks really nice.

hi..i am just wondering if there is any other places to go shop or eat in the morning like between 9am to 12pm when most of the shops are closed as it seems like the main shopping attractions are the night markets and places like new york new york and the area around there.

and for keelung miaokow i saw in their website that it operates 24hr..
may I know if ti is recommended to go at night?

I am planning to visit shilin, keelung, raohe and huaxi jie night markets

Si da nightmarket has good food too.

Shilin food is not bad just that the shopping lane might be flooded with make shift stalls in the middle of the path way so may not have breathing space at all if you want to shop there.

Jiufen old town is a nice place. stay for a night to enjoy the view and food if possible.

Yu Ren ma tou has great view too. Watch sunset at the starbucks and shop along the old lane.

Soak in the hot spring at Beitou for a relaxing last day treatment beforeyou fly home.

Question

today's rate at 1pm, parkway parade. 22.009NT
Bro, can confirm with you it's

a. SGD$1 = NT22.009

or

b. SGD$1 = NT22.09

Best i found today was NT22.06 @ peoples park. Ground level, go in main entrance after the lifts turn right. Got LCD displaying the currency rates.

Most other places were giving rates NT22, NT22.03, NT22.05.

22.009 =) maybe its parkway and not chinatown area
do note currency rate changes every fast. so cant really compare la..for me at least 22NT i happy enough le. 20th may should see a strengthening of NT dollar when president MA took office.
