      Want to Play Tour Guide for a Day?

      by bobnfran Online Now Nov 26, 2014 at 8:05 AM

      We are an active senior couple arriving in Kaohsiung on March 5, 2015 for just one day (cruise ship). Wondering if any locals would be willing to meet us and tour us around your city in your car, including Fokuangshan Monastary and other places you recommend, plus things 'off the beaten track.' We are experienced travelers who live in USA and Chiang Mai, Thailand. We've done this sort of thing before on VT and always worked great for all! Open to all ideas! (;>). Thanks, Bob & Fran

      I'm planning to travel to Kaoshiung 20-26Mar, would like to read up some locals recommend places to visit to eat.

      Due to the weather changes, I'm not sure if I'm expecting rainy season in Taiwan during March. As I thought of staying in Minsu, I hope to tour around in Pingtung and Kenting. Hope to read up more as it might be a solo trip or two ladies trip

      Will be in town from Apr. 9-12. Just want to know if there are any public festivals or cultural events while I'm there.

      Also would like to ask what unique souvenirs can be bought there that you can't get anywhere else. Have been to Taipei before so I already have some ideas on what's generally available but I'd like to purchase something different.

      Thanks for any replies.

If we book our flight to Kaosiung, is Taipei short distace, do we need to travel much? How far is Taipei. Would you recommend just flying directly to Taipei? thank you.
