hi.

i emailed them recently and its the same price they quoted me also

the $2880 they quoted is actually the deluxe suite and they only allow adding bed in that room from what i know. so its actually $2380(deluxe suite) + $500(extra bed)

if need 3 person room maybe can look at royalcastle, their online promo now is $2180NT (1 Queensize, 1 Single bed)

any1 can advise if i should book a driver/tour guide for NT3000 (4pax) for going to Yehliu, Geelung, Jinguashi and Jiufen? was thinking if we were to travel ourselves will the transport cost be very much cheaper or abt the same? if abt the same (or not very big difference) then i'll book a driver to save the hassle of getting lost and more comfort

Sun - Day trip to Taroke Gorge (Need to book anything in advance)?

Buy train tickets in advance and book a tour guide if you know one. Perhaps you may swap this day to a weekday to avoid large crowd.

Mon (Morning go to Jiufen -> Beitou (Late noon Spa) >Fisherman Wharf- (Evening)> Shilin Night Market> Back to Hotel

Tue (Taipei Underground Mall @morning, Guang Hua Guang Chang@ noon,wu fen pu @ late noon. Taipei 101, Miramar Ferris Wheel in the evening

You gonna skip raohe nightmarket after wu fen pu which is nearby? Taipei 101 at evening, I'm not sure if it will be nice. Maybe others can advised on this.

Wed (XMD, Flight back to SG at 1900hrs)

How is this revised iternary?

I'm not familiar with taipei but i know that the places you intend to visit in Day 2 & 3 is not smooth in terms of travelling. Refer to the MRT map and think how you intend to get to those places to get what i mean. http://www.trtc.com.tw/e/service.asp...B3%87%E8%A8%8A

Kaohsiung to Kenting is 2.5hrs and both ways is 5hrs by bus and 4hrs by taxi. How are you going do F&E in Kaohsiung and what are you gonna do in Kenting?

You need to travel from Chiayi HSR Station to Chiayi TRA Station to catch the Alishan train. Alishan train to Alishan is 4.5hrs and bus will take you about 4hrs. What are you going to do when you reached Alishan? Bus or train from Chiayi will take you another few more hours to Taipei.

Suggest you go Hualien and Taipei only with your given time frame
