Both got their beauty. In the day, you can see everything down taipei 101. At night, can see all the lights and traffic.

But the best place is to see the entire night view of Taipei city is to drive up to Yangming shan at the top. It is very cold up there but the view is worth the effort.

I think daytime better cos you can identify the various landmarks indicated by the signboards located in the observatory.

Thanks to the recommandation of the experts, I have booked My Meeky Yang for a day.

If I have gone to all the places he has recommanded but still got three hours left, can I ask him to drive around the city till the times up?

is it adviseable for me to book HRS tickets on line first rather than getting it on the spot? I am going to Kaoshiung from Taipei on 19/02/10, reaching airport at anout 645pm, still CNY mood for them, will it be a problem to get a ticket?

Hi,

My friend and I will b going by jetstar on the 17th to Taoyuan Airport.
We will be heading to Huaying st, so am looking for possible 'cab buddies', anyone?

And because it's my first time going taiwan, would like to ask the experts here, should I bring a DSLR or a PNS?
