no....but based on experince.the earlest date oso need couple of mths..
sum part is totally...can see the railway but cannot see the soil wan..
(it like a pc of metal hanging in the mid air)


in fact...sum ppl actualli suggest building cable car to get to alishan...
this idea is not bad but i dun rike it(i took the foresty train b4),inisde the train,as the train move slowly up,u can see the changes n wonders of Mother Nature...
going thur the tunnels build century ago...the feeling is totally different wan

nothing at raohe, you will feel disappointed......go to SHIDA instead
Hmm, been to quite a few night markets during this trip but not Shida. Maybe will go there next time. In order of preference, the night markets I went are:

1. Shilin
2. Danshui
3. Kenting
4. Raohe
5. Keelung
6. Kaohsiung Liuhe

Hey folks, currently sitting in the Rainbow Hotel business centre... waiting for my airport shuttle to arrive... yup... 5 days of Taipei over..!

Weather update to those who are coming soon... it has been raining for the past 2-3 days... sometimes heavy drizzle... sometimes light... so light that 50% of the people walking without umbrella.

Hah.. was planning to do some last minute shopping coz the flight is only at 6pm... but me an wife were too wasted already... went to cheong "18" yesterday (with another couple we met on the 1/2 day tour)... and only came back at 4am! its a nightspot owned by Tuo Zong Kang... at the Warner Vieshow area... near Taipei 101. Cover charge is NT700 on a Friday night with 2 drinks. Beer is NT200, Long Island NT350... Music was nothing to shout about... but... the Taiwanese gals are hot hot hot...!! Lots of model looking gals.. Wifey was saying the bartenders were cute... but me no comment. . Oh... we even bumped into Tou Zong Kang himself... and got him to take a photo with us.!

Just to update on the hotpot... the one with the free flow Haagen Daz (also got Meiji Icecream) is Le Ye... right in the same building as Rainbow Hotel at XMT. Costs about SGD20 on a weekday dinner. Got about 6 flavours for HD and 8-10 flavours for Meiji... frankly.. largest and best icre cream spread we have come across in buffets.

Yup... logging off soon.. will share some details or pictures which people still planning their trips... think we have practically covered every inch of shopping area in Taipei within 5 days!

Oh man... Weather doesnt look good next week...

Will be flying off to Taoyuan early Tuesday morning, 20/10/09... Free and easy for 5 days in Taipei... Was surfing around to beef up my itinerary and came across this site... lots of useful materials. The Fei Tian Mala Hotpot sounds interesting... Wah... steamboat with free flow Haagan Daz?! My wife will go crazy.

BTW, was thinking... we can arrange a mini dinner gathering in Taipei next week... can also exchange pointers on places to go. Anyone who's keen and will be there during that time can PM me!
