Flushing of Toilet paper in Taiwan:

Tainan government urges flushing of toilet paper to save costs

However, modern toilets and plumbing in Taiwan are able to handle discarded toilet paper, the department said, urging people to cultivate the habit of disposing of toilet paper in this way, not only to reduce costs but also to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria.

Dun worry, it is only minutes away by driving. And if u stay in stonehouse, transportation is not a concern, for me, cos Aunty Liu will arrange for u w/o charges if she is available. She provide good and thoughtful service and i did not spend a single cent on transportation during my 3 days stay when goin to night market, dinner or visiting places of interest. Even if really hav to take cab, it is abt NTD$100 -150 to the night market.

Hi all,

If me and my friends are on Singtel's Pay-As-You-Roam scheme and when we are in Taipei, how do we call each other's mobile (SG mobile to SG mobile while in Taipei)? I've tried using +65 in front and it doesn't work.

Anyone can help?

P.S. Also, can anyone post a download link for the latest WLMJ? Thank you very much!

thanks for the advice.
1) does the stone house have ensuite loo and shower in each room?
2) I should book the minsu then book a tour guide too? was thinking of engaging mr Lu whom has rave review
3) read that we can play fireworks and kong ming deng at the minsu, do i need to tell liu ah yi when i call to book?
4) when calling from singapore from a hp or land line do i just dial the exact number listed or do i need those 001 thingy?

you have to produce 2 things:

1. airtix
2. accomodation booking details

They need to have the booking details of your accomodation. Anything less than the 2 they won't give one. Can give them a call at 62236546 (Taiwan Visitors Association). Even if you staying at budget hotels, can request for them to fax over a confirmation.
