Sorry, my bad. Got a pic of Taipei 101 in my folder, and discover that both are not the same. Haha. K. Will change. Taipei 101 not straight on its sides, right?

oct ok lar not holiday period.. can try to look ard on july and august.. If u budget compare airfare from china airline and Jetstar.. For SIA they see their mood sometime got promotion also. For 7 days u really have to see where u want to go first then u plan which day go where so that u can save time on the travelling. For 7 days dun think u have time to go to kaoshiung liaoz..
oic.... me probably going from 27th oct to 2nd nov...? oso checked SIA.... tix for 4 (4 of us going) costs about $2.1 AFTER tax..... seems pretty good price to me.... but wondering if add in accomadation prices.... if compare to package tours... which one would be more worthed it....

as for budget airline... jetstar asia costs about half of SIA.... but me never taken budget airlines b4... am worried about the kind of experience we will get... and the safety...


regards,
wacky

This forum has been a very great help! Going for a F&E on 1st Aug to 7th Aug. Hope can find answer to the following questions:

1) Anyone knows the website for the meishuang hotel mentioned in the previous posting? Tried looking for it in both www.eztravel.com.tw and www.easytravel.com.tw/taiwan, but can't find it.

2) How can I go from Hualien to Taichung?

Thanks in advance!

I took the domestic flight from Kaoshiung to Hualien, about S$100, and from Hualien to Taipei, about $75. Hope this helps!

Thanks for ur reply Nakedtoes!

Thinking of staying in Good Ground Hotel. Anyone stay there before or have any comments?

One of my itenary is to go from Hualien to Taichung. Still trying to figure out how to go. One possibility is to travel by train from Hualien to Taipei then to Taichung, But this will take some time. So was thinking of travelling by night so that can sleep on train (and save on one night's lodging). Hope to hear some comments on the feasiblity of this arrangement.

Got the following quotation from jetstarasia.
$378 per pax for booking of 1 adult
$388 per pax for booking of more than 1 adult.
Why is it more expensive to booked for more than 1 adult? Thought it'll be cheaper we buy the tix in bulk?

One last question, how much does it cost to call to taiwan? (sorry for this seemingly stupid question, but i'm really ignorant of the cost)

Thanks!

i heard SHi Fen has a really nice and scenic waterfalls to view.
Personally I think JiuFen is definitely worth gg. I just came back from TW. Jiufen scenary is beautiful & coz it's raining, the weather is great. Very cooling, we spent some time at the teahouse, looking into the sea while waiting for the rain to stop. The food is very nice too!! (But fried rice a bit oily. But seafood soup is yummy~)...but one section of the street stinks smelly toufu (almost suffocated there). If I have the time, I would love to sit there & wait for the night scene (shld b as nice^^) It's one of the places where I will definitely revisit next time!

As for ShiFen, I didnt managed to go there. We followed the directions given by the locals & waited for the bus at the bus stop. But the buses refused to stop & we dont dare to take the taxis. So we climbed our way back to the street. so didnt managed to get to Shi Fen nor the goldmine area. Goldmine area, (based on the locals intro, can see Jap style houses, waterfall, goldmine "musuem").

I remember finding one direct bus from Keelung to Danshui (coz I was trying to save time, kill Yeliu+JiuFen+Keelung+Danshui). But I can remember where I save the file. Perhaps you can try finding e buses...i'lll try to search my drive...

Hi Nakedtoes, can you send the file to me too (hydrui@yahoo.com.sg)?
I just came back from my trip to taiwan (first time there), really regreted for not doing enough homework (walked like hell to find the places) & my friends are not very helpful (they did no homework @ all & one of them have no sense of directions). We were there for 5 days but I really feel that I didnt achieve as much as you guys.....I really hope to have a better trip next time =~~(

Really appreciate your help...Thanks!
