thanx rawlinson. care to share ur itinery?
just starting to plan, but i dun think i have enough days to go to all i wana go.

what's there for guys and gers in the mid-20s....

and what is taroko?

my notes:
5 day= 5 night markets ;p
hua xi, shilin, shida+kunguan, feng jia, jing ming, zhong xiao(after 10?)

Some choices:
1 day hua lian - for local goods & sightseeing?(muah chee) + qi xing zhan?(beach)
1 day? yang ming shan?? + tian mu (factory outlet?)
taipei 101
bei tou- hot spring(any recomendation? heard wu lai is good, where's that?)

dan shui- for local goods? sotong ball, 40 cm icecream, tofu with noodle filling.
wufenpu (wholesale?)
sun yat sen memorial hall (near din tai fung ;p),
ye lin+ ke lung (1/2 day)
ruifan (shop) , jiufen?

There is my itinery...
Day one - 1800 reach cks airport, took bus to taichong NT230. Managed to check into TwinStar hotel at 2130. Walked to chong xiao night mkt for dinner.

Day 2 - Morning took a bus to Puli for ard NT130. Changed bus from Puli to Sun Moon Lake for NT50. Engaged a car tour for NT1000 (standard price is 1200 stated there) as monday less tourist. Return back to puli and then taichong. Went to tiger city shopping center and Feng Jia night mkt (highly recommand)

Day 3 - Bus to kaohsiung ard NT250. Check in Gear hotel. Spent 8 hours walking to 新掘江 shopping district, 新光三月,sogo, fareastern and 汉神 shopping center. Dinner at Liuhe night mkt.

Day 4 - Walk ard. Visited arts museum and love river (sucks) Realised Kaohsiung is a pretty boring place and the transportation sux. Saw alot of Starlight people there too... laugh at a few of them... they look like idiots walking in a big group ard with their crew cut and new balance...Took train to taipei at 2320 hrs.

Day 5 - Reach taipei at 0600. Put bags at rainbow hotel. Went for breakfast, CKS memorial hall.....wufenpu and shilin at night

Day 6 - Dan Sui and tianMu

Day 7 - Ximending.... watched FIR performance there..... MOS disco

Day 8 - ZhongXiao area, SYS memorial hall. Taipei 101. Dinner at Fuxing rd porridge and snacks area (highly recommand)

Day 9 - Wulai mountain plus hotspring. Dinner at a BBQ restaurant... holiday ktv thru the night

day 10 - last minute shopping..... shilin

day 11 - last minute shopping again... went up to taipei 101 NT350 this time as it was close the last time we went. Return back!!!

there are 4 ways to go about this

1) be their fan or go their tw forums/yahoo clubs/official site for information

2) visit appledaily.com.tw, visit their 娛樂版,find the news that is 追星趴趴走, it will show the appearances of stars in taipei for that day, updated every early morning

3) http://www1.iwant-radio.com/ - this website has listings of weekend appearances by stars, be it concerts, autograph sessions, etc (located on right side of main page)

4) when u are on the plane like china airlines, get their newspaper which is from taiwan. only applies if u on this plane. budget airline and sg air do not apply

wah thanx!!! u r of gr8 help~

11 days too little liao..need at least 14 days ah..

i going for 10 days oso, itinerary as follows (specially planned by agency):
1st night- taipei
2nd - 4th night - Penghu
5th-6th nigh - Taichung
7th - 9th night - Taipei

I also wanna go to kenting and hualian 1 but really, the travelling time kills. From one end to the other end of the island is no joke wor~ BTW Kaoshiung can skip one leh, nothing special, even their 'love river' is worse than our SG river

So if skip KS n go Kenting, more worth it. I believe there is domestic flight to Hengchun Airport, hence travelling time can b greatly minimised to reach kenting from taichung.

i think that the jeans and shoes are the best buy in taipei
I bought 2 levis squarecut jeans from tianmu and one pair of high cut converse sneakers
All original and well priced... if u are into nike air and dunk then good for u.... the price for nike sneakers are pretty cheap. There are good buys are ard u just have to hunt for it.

U can buy a few magazines and take a look when u reach taipei if u are a hardcore shopper.
For more mature dresser u can buy 'Men's Style (M'S)' or 'men uno'... if u are into hiphop street clothes buy 'Hipper'

I never see much chiong clothes in taiwan.... the people there are generally very well dressed. The most common chiong clothes i see is fake A&F and american eagle.

For shopping, i recommand TianMu district, Ximending for younger people, zhongxiao area and taipei 101 area (new york new york shopping center is good)

welcome back... there LV cheaper?
