Hi as Rawlinson mentioned ferry from yu ren ma tou - name of island is Ba Li. Can't remember if you buy both way is it with discount, but you can check.

For Tian Mu - I did not go as I was only there for 4 days

yah, then i better call later...hehehe...
Starhub call to Taiepi free for 1st 5 mins rite?

Actually i feel Day 6 also a bit boring, esp Taipei 101, NYNY...all super ex.too..
Think i wont waste my time there, at most 1 or 2 hrs c c look look nia.

Maybe if Day 5 not enuff time, then day 6 can cover.
Or can go Tian Mu on day 6 in the morning? cos put tian mu in day 1 is a bit out of the way..

or go temple or CKS memorials?

hmm..any suggestions?

22May 8.10am - 28may 2.35pm

Hi everyone,

I just came back from my taiwan trip... didn't end it quite well as been missing out certain well-known spots. I'm planning for a comeback during November. I'm a shoppaholic so did anyone know any gd spot for shopping? thanks!

hi dreamer75,

may i have the number to call to book a seat for the recordings of the variety shows?
anyone went there before to watch?
how long does the recording take?
and where exactly do we go and watch?

also, why no one mentioned going to Wu Lai Aboriginal Village for sight seeing?
i heard it's quite nice and very scenic, am i wrong?

thanks!
