Some cab can some cannot... if only 2 person... i think can place 1 luggage in the passenger seat if the driver allows...

I usually hire MaxiCab or minibus... MaxiCab can put at least 4 28" behind... and some small luggages at the front...
He ask for 2...
Unless that uncle/aunt put a lot in their own boot, if not , all can fit 2.

If got a mix of 29" and smaller size luggages... usually can arrange here and there to fit... but if all large 28/29" very hard... even 2 large for normal taxis quite challenging...
Now Prius can fit 2.
2 is the max/limit.
If put at car seats, will be those 20-21".
Some also will not allow u to put there.

Side track, my ride from West to Changi Airport , cost about 51 last Sunday.
Driver also told me Sienta cannot fit as much, they may even need to reject customers.

Can fit 2.
I last booked GRAB for 4 pax.
using the 6 seater. A NOAH came and then we fit 3 21" and 2 29".
Think I'll get a Grab 6-seater then, 4 pax and probably 1 large 1 med, 1 small luggage. Not sure how maxi cab charges.

How about return journey? Do you all use Grab instead of taxi? My return flight will touch down and 11 plus at night.

Also anyone stayed in both Hotel Relax I and II before? Any difference in experience?

If all 4 stays in the same residence, then I will grab a maxi-cab or alphard from airport limousine service which cost near to 60 or 62, cannot remember.
Of course if your distance is damn far, like Clementi, Jurong, can consider.

i also booked Richardson for my dec trip.. anyone stayed b4?
Room pretty big and decent for Midtown Richardson, but if you want to go out during peak hour or check out/ check in time, prepare to wait for the lift. pre covid i was there in dec/jan and once i waited 20 mins for the lift.

Pre Covid already not much tiongs tourists in TW... due to the tension btw these 2 countries...

Got a lot of koreans though...
As long as the lousy president keeps badmouthing China, no Chinese will go. Why spend in a country that does it like them?

Now the top three % of tourists should be from Thailand, Vietnam and Philippine... Even my flight SG to Tpe at least 50% is worker from Vietnam....
