do a advanced search on 'guess show' ,search only 'travel and Accommodation' and 'view by post' and most likely u will find the number and how to go there.

Nuttzyazn you migrated to Taipei ah? You seem to know it very well.

I feel like getting an airticket and going alone. Any opinions? It sounds like a very lonely and boring trip unless I get to make friends with some locals.
