The hotel is resonable clean. However some of their room is abit small. At NT750 to 800 i would said it is value for money. It even has bathtub, water coolers/heater on every floors. Never stay at paradise or rainbow before which is NT1750 so no comment.

SOme info if u staying at mei shiung.. out of the entrance u turn right is taipei railway station cum mrt.. turn left is zhong shan mrt. Alot of bags, hardware, few comic, toys distributors surround the hotel. Try to avoid 2nd floor rooms as one of the rooms is smelly which my friend request to change the next day. The staffs there are friendly

i take zhi qiang if i not wrong.. then i opoosite take a bus to jiufen.. when alight i nv see u leh.. to confirm again thursday is 26th may right....

I miss taiwan.. the food

Hi! I'm gg to TW in next wk. From the TW tourist map, to get to jiufen, k take train to Ruifang from Taipei & change bus to Jiufen. Is that right? The train mentioned here, is it railway train or the MRT? (a bit confused). Is it at the Taipei Main Station? Roughly how much does it cost & takes how long for the train ride?

I heard tat k also take bus to Keelong & change bus to jiufen (bus ride frm Keelong to Jiufen is 10 mins compared to Ruifang's 30 min bus ride to Jiufen)

Car motion sickness , so trying to cut the travelling time as short as possible...=P

You can take Zhi Qiang or Ying Guang Hao (railway train) from Taipei Train Station to Ruifang.

the train ticket (NT80 1 way, 40 minutes ride) to ruifang, after getting out from ruifang station, go across the road and take bus 825 Ji Long Ke Yun (NT19, 10-15 minutes ride) toward jinguashi direction and drop off at jiufen .

It takes abt 40mins bus journey from Jufen to Keelung. From keelung, you can buy Guo Guang Bus tix back to Taipei.

Hope this helps
