Agreed with Mountain_Tortorise comments that your schedule is too tight. I pretty much doubt you can execute day 4 without a hired cab tour guide. Kenting main street comes alive at the night so it will be good to spend a night there.

There are cabs at kenting but most are parked at one side somewhere near the road leading to the Kenting National waiting to pick up passengers to return to Kaohsiung. They wouldn't drive around looking for passengers like in Singapore.

With your 6 days stay in Taiwan, I suggest you hang around Taipei, Taichung and Hualien will do to minimized spending too much time on travelling

thanks for helping.

Sunday, my wife dun want to go Taroke. She dun like outdoor scenery after hearing from my friend that it is full day hiking unlike me. Got another good place to replace for Sunday?
There is a Taiwan WLMJ floating around, go download it and see what your wife likes...

Hi all, wanna check, the scooter at kenting, do i need to show them my car license b4 i can ride it?

and wat are the rates like?

or best case, no need to show any form of license? cos the motor bicycle doesn;t seem fun at all compared to scooter.

thnx in advance.

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)

http://www.royalcastle-tpe.com.tw/accommodation07.php
Hi, thanks for your reply. How is the location of Royal Castle compare to TS? Near to mrt too or further down? Thanks
May I know where did you get the $2,180 NT? I cehck their web, no promo currently
