Hi,

Can u recommand any cabby that drives to kenting? or where can i find the timetable for buses from kaohsiung to kenting... thanks
I took a cab from Kaohsiung to Kenting. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and charged us only NT300 per pax (2 of us). Journey took 1+ hr. A Kuo Kwang bus one-way journey already cost more than NT300 and will take more than 2 hrs, so the ride was definitely worth it. The driver was so good that we booked him for the return trip the very night, at the same rate. Even when he had to go to Kenting with an empty car that night (cos he couldn't find passengers from Kaohsiung to Kenting), he didn't ask us for more money.

His contact details for those who are interested:

Mr Zhang Rui De
Mobile: +886 0932856423

As he knows some minsu operators there, he claimed that he can get us preferential rates. We didn't try cos did not stay at Kenting for the night. He did however got us some discounts for go-karting.

Some people are just strange. I'm trying to be helpful and share my experience. It's not as if I'm the cabby or I have anything to gain. It's up to you whether to believe it. I just did that 2 weeks ago. My wife and I paid the cabby NT600 from Kaohsiung Main Station to Kenting and another NT600 from Kenting back to Kaohsiung King's Town Hotel. Anyone interested can just call the cabby to ask.

Hi all. I would be going to Taiwan in Jan by Jetstar. Need some help on planning my itinerary now. Could you guys help me on the following questions?

1. Has anyone stayed in Love Boutique Motel before and can it accomodate around 4 people? Will they check?
2. How long does it take to get to sun moon lake from Taichung? Is it far? Or would it be nearer to go from Hualien instead?
3. Has anyone heard of the Hello Kitty Hotel is HsinChu before? I can't seem to find any website or address online but I've seen pics. (not the Kaohsiung Grand-Hi La hotel). I really want to visit the place!
4. Lastly, will shops be only selling winter clothings in Jan? I'll like to do quite abit of shopping!

Thanks!!
