Day 3: National Palace Museum closes at 5pm so dun think you can visit it so late. You should also cater around 2 hours for it.

Day 4: No point walking around xmd so early cos the shops would not be open. Also better check what time the Taipei 101 obsevatory closes.

Day 6: I find there's nothing worth seeing in Tianmu. You might want to give it a miss. Can consider going to the zoo to see pandas. Entrance fee only NT60.

If you want sight-seeing, I suggest you go Yehliu and Jiufen. But have to allocate at least half a day for it.

so can i say that taiwan will be having an early winter this year?
I'm not too sure. Taiwan's weather has become erratic. This year it will be influenced by the El Nino effect so anything might happen.
There were reports that the typhoon season could extend to Dec this year.
We will have to wait and see.
Who can believe that in 3 days we will have 13C temp when today's forecast high is 30C!!

I was in Tian Mu 2 weeks ago, I lived there for nearly 11 years sorry to say it has changed quite a bit, nothing exciting there any more and a few of those Export outlet shops have closed!!

Dear taiwan experts here, I will be visiting taipei next 2 weeks and had planned all my itinerary.

Just want to know anyone familiar with 紫微斗数 in taipei? Any place to recommend? I heard there's a popular one but I cannot recall who told me. Anyone have any idea where to look for good ones?
