Future Star is no frills Hotel. TS is a lot better.

IF all guys going and you have finished NS i.e. had some in camp living , the FS is fine for you.

If going with GF, then she will appreciate the TS. Or you can give her the choice - extra SGD350 for shopping and better food instead of better Hotel Room.

the hotel quite expensive..
NT2800 double room
=$70+ per person...
go 5 days already $350...
$350+jetstar ticket $500= $850+
should i go freen easy? or just pick tour package?
tour package is like $800-$900 + some meals....
All the hotels have discount up to 40% on weekdays, you have to call and check rate then book if they got rooms.

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.

you need to organized in a group of 10 to go watch -- total they accept around 15 groups I think. I am also trying to go for one if there is recording on 25 May. (Normally they record 2 session in a single day for every 2 weeks)

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.
Actually I moved here in 1985 and assimilated myself with the locals before they could call me a FT!!!

Many forumers came over here on solo trips and had a good time as well. Post your dates here and see if other solo travellers are going at the same time and meet up here.
