For the record, elderly really subjective, if you need wheelchair, confirm will give you special priority.
Some folks are stronger than adults.
The special queue will usually be on the right when u face the queue.

After entry clearance, there is no slip or form for exit.
Hmmm... then based on yr experience, shld I go the priority lane?
Will I be chased away? :o
I have 2 aunties - 66 and 64yo

gongguan is not the traditional nm style, but it has many food and shops. also it is close to NTU, so the things sold are geared towards students.

I know. Just feel boring somehow. I would rather go Shida NM.

I like tong hua is because it is near those pet shops. Good for animal lovers like me 😁

1. no need so ganchiong, one wk before or the night before also can

two months ago, i only submitted before i go take taxi to changi airport :s13::s13:

2. from my experience, no need say anything, just pass the immigration officer your passport.

https://oa1.immigration.gov.tw/nia_acard/acardAddAction.action

Meaning dont need to fill in any physical card? Once registered online, just hand over our passport for custom officers and there will be record liao ah? Need to print out anything?

is it better to take bus from taichung to taipei cbd or take hsr if i am carrying luggage?

how many days should i spend in taichung? what is there to see and do besides visiting SML, cingjing and hehuanshan?

weather forecast shows that taipei weather sucks. always raining and cloudy so maybe i should spend more days in taichung

If you have large luggage, i prefer bus and train.

About 3D2N

if not rushing for time, take the coach. definitely can carry lots of luggages.

u can use taichung as a base to visit the surroundings, eg. sml, puli, wetlands, besides the attractions in taichung itself. 3D2N is good.

Depend on how you plan, taichung 2-3 days is enough, unless you use taichung as a base to nearby places.
This is my plan last year march:
Taipei 1N, Taichung 2N, Alishan 1N, Cingjing 1N, Taipei 2N. I take E-Go bus Cingjing to TMS (tour bus 600ntd per pax)

I tried taking guo guang bus before from airport to tp main station, just want to see which is the fastest way to commute :)

i plan to use taichung as a base to do some day tours to sml, cingjing and explore the city cause last time never explore. too lazy to move here and there.

is the queue for immigration clearance at taipei airport still very long?
