If your Onestar is on Chongqing S Rd, then you take Guoguang bus to Taipei Main Station and walk to Hotel.It will cost you NTD125. (SGD6.50 per head)
If you take cab ,it will cost you NTD 1100 minimum. (SGD51.00)

think @22NTD is a good rate.. went during march at a rate of 21.88, whereas the common rate then was 21.70-21.75

you can take a look at this website:

http://travel.network.com.tw/tourgui...owpage/32.html

best to find a hotel there and stay a night, there is some shops along the street that you can shop, but to go to the different scenary location you best to book a vehicle from the hotel, cause its 3hr walk if you are walking around.
ohh, looks good. Can ask which hotel you chose? And how it was?

Tour around Minsu
*Is it better to travel back to Taipei first then Hualien?
*How to travel from Taichung to Hualien?
