Hey guys, i just came back from taipei last week.a couple of things to share:

1) Buffet meal

I highly recommend this buffet restaurant ---> http://www.eatogether.com/

There's movenpick and hagen daz ice cream and also all canned and bottled drinks/beer are free for you to take. Food variety was also very good...think i only managed to try half of the food...

As for directions, there are 2 branches in taipei city, one in neihu and one at zhongxiao dunhua. I went to the zhongxiao dunhua one as its more convenient. Just take the mrt to zhongxiao dunhua station and follow the signs to Ming Yao departmental store. In the departmental store, take lift to 12th floor and you're there.

2) Airport transfer

I went in a group of 4 and we managed to get transport to the airport from TS hotel at only NTD650, this is even cheaper than taking the freego bus (I tipped the driver an extra NTD50 as his service was really good). Call Mr Qiu at 886 988263898 and he will arrange for you.
Hi takuyazzz!

regarding the Buffet meal (http://www.eatogether.com), how much does it cost?

Yes u have to alight at Jing An Statn. When u reach the station there will be sign board directing u to which bus stop to take the bus to "Leofoo chun"

Last yr i went , there was this taxi uncle standing ard the bus stop asking if we were interested to take his cab to go up to Leo Fu Chun ( Hence he gathered some more passengers and we travel up ) Save time !!

If u want to take bus, dun need to purchase for ticket . Ask the Bus driver how much u need to pay will do

hi, for the bus to leofoo village. if i do no purchase the tickets before hand, somemore i only board at jingan station. means if the bus is full when it reaches jing an, means i cant go le? what are the chances of meeting a packed bus?
