My wife use the airport loaned mobile spot. And i just my Zimifi from taobao and FarEasTone 7day 4G sim from Carousell.
My wife unit ran out of power in 6 hours while mine still working after 10 hours.

I had chatted with my Jiufen driver, she told me, Chunghwa still the best as it had the most base stations even underground mall.
The next better telco for 4G is FastEasTone.

I used the latter to watch Youtube review videos of places of Interests for my Free & Easy trips planned at the last minute after checked in hotel (Prior flight, read about bad wet weather).

I bought a second backup data 4G sim belong to APTG (Gt 4G) from Carousell. Very disappointed with its performance. Unreliable. I use it for voice call only and read emails when in transports in city built-up areas.

May I know for travelling around Taichung, eg from HSR to Yi Zhong Jie or Feng Jia.
Is it advisable to take cab or any other form of transport beside bus?
Will the cab chop carrot like Malaysia by offering higher fixed rate or merry go round... :p

Shuttle bus if i recall is free.
Cab goes by meter.
If 1-2 pax, maybe expensive.

My last trip is roughly 5 years ago, I search online got shuttle but the local (Maybe from other city of Taiwan) guide me to take their normal bus service which took 1hr+ to reach...scare of it le.

And the really hate PRC sia, all black face till we say we from SG den they will start talking to us onboard.

Think I will take cab and how's the cab fare like as I'm travelling with my Father-in-law, 3 yrs kid and my wife is currently pregnant.

That time when I was in Taipei, from Raohe got empty cab but refused to take us also.

Need help to confirm again.....

Taiwan using 2 pin 110V, 60Hz AC right.
As long as my electrical devices is 100-240V, 50-60Hz.

I'm safe to use it with a SG 3pin to 2pin adapter without transformer right?
