BTW i saw there article on alishan train drivers mass resign.

Dunno how is the situation now.

There may not be a direct bus to a Ximenting Hotel by Freego so late (You can check) Better if you take th KuoKuang bus to Taipei Main Station and cab it. Which Hotel or location??

The Postal chart shows to Singapore max Parcel weight is 30kgs.
0.5kg is NTD220 and so on down the chart.

Cold front approaching Taiwan: CWB
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A continental cold air mass is expected to move into Taiwan Friday evening , bringing showers to most parts of the island and sending the mercury down, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said in a forecast yesterday. CWB meteorologists predicted that temperatures in northern, northeastern and central Taiwan could drop to as low as 11 degrees Celsius March 14-15, with the daytime highs varying between 16 and 21 degrees Celsius.

The map provided on their website in misleading, it is quite far to walk to taipei main station, there is a closer MRT station at 228 Peace Park but that doesn't seems near as well.

For proximity to Taipei MRT station, use Cosmos Hotel as a reference as it is next to the train station.

Has anyone stayed in a backpacker's hostel in Taipei before? I ll be travelling with 4 other guys, so that ll be 5 in total, and would like to stay in a backpacker's hostel. I tried calling Taipei Traveller's Hostel, but they are full for the date I want. Any other such hostel's to recommend? I would prefer one with ensuite bathroom.
YMCA?? I stayed there the last time I went in 2007.YMCA is not bad but is slightly more ex than taipei traveler (I think around SGD35 per person per night). It's around the same area as taipei traveler hostel which I booked this time (going in june). Btw, the last time I went was with 4 friends, so there were 5 of us too. I think they only got 4 bed ensuite, so if u want u must add an additional bed.

Info on Ubus here. You google using the keywords http://www.google.com.sg/search?hl=e...%81+ubus&meta=

http://www.taoyuanairport.gov.tw/chi...ighspeed_c.jsp

I saw some lockers at the taipei train station but I don't think they can fit large luggages.
