the foresty train is abt &00NT per pax
hotel should b $3k(most expensive)
so ur hotel n tic should not b more than $4kNT
den set aside ard $1k for others expenses...
at the most $5k per pax only

hotel part is too expensive liao(this is oso the only portion u can change)
the other portion is ur expenses

I felt that minsu is good enough, no need a 4k hotel. Are you gonna stay a minsu during your stay at Taiwan? Go for hotel if your priority is comfort and cost is not an issue...
