      I'm planning to get my NT$ from ATMs using a MasterCard credit card. Are ATMs that accept international credit cards (MasterCard/Visa) common in Taiwan? Do the local banks charge a fee for using their machines?

    • Bus to Star Beauty Resort

      by Lad_uk Online Now Oct 2, 2013 at 2:28 PM

      Hi, I'm staying at the Star Beauty Resort at No.38-1, Qiangang Street, Shihlin District and understand I can take the Kuo-Kuang 1819 bus from the airport to 2 possible stops where I can then catch a taxi to the hotel. The first stop appears to be the one closest to the hotel and is the Kulun Street stop. If I get off at this stop, will I have to flag a taxi off the street or will there be a taxi stand nearby? How obvious is it that the stop is the Kulun Street stop? Is it announced in English? The second option is to go all the way to Taipei station and then find a taxi there. I think I favour this option more as it seems the less troublesome as I can just stay on the bus till the end and I guess that I would know I've arrived at Taipei station rather than having to lookout for Kulun Street. I'm also assuming that getting a taxi at Taipei station will be easier? If I take the bus all the way to Taipei station, will this add much time to the journey and will the taxi fare to the hotel be a lot more. Should I be getting off at Kulun Street instead? To get back to the airport, will it be just the reverse? Thanks

    • Haggling in Taiwan

      Hi, Would haggling be expected or accepted with certain traders? I appreciate that the shopping malls won't entertain it but how about places like night markets and traders outside of tourist attractions for example? If so, how much should I expect the prices to be inflated by? Thanks.

      Chop (Seal) store in Taipei Taoyuan International Airport

      by anadyr Online Now Aug 22, 2013 at 9:38 AM


      I will be passing through Taipei in Septl and I would like to have some chops (seals) made for my family. I know that there is a shop in the airport that makes these (but, that is all I know). I have
      several questions that I hope that someone can answer.

      a. Where is the exact location. I thought that it was right next to the China Air Lines gates

      b. How much time do they need to make a seal. I may be transiting through Taipei twice during the trip so I thought that I would order them on arrival/pick them up on departure (but, I may also have a single afternoon layover which you mean 2 or 3 hours to do the work)

      c. Anybody knows their hours

      d. If anyone have their website/email address I would greatly appreciate it.

      Thanks to all travellers, Greatly appreciate it

      Hi! Am headed to Taipei over the Chinese New Year and would like to get some advice regarding what'll be open and what to do over that period of time. Esp 11-12th Feb. Will the night markets / little cafes / Shida stalls be open? Or would it be better to take a day trip out to Beitou / Yangminshan on the 11/12th? Though I saw online that some of the stuff at Beitou is closed on Mondays (11th Feb)... Any suggestions welcome! Am looking to visit more art / tea houses / little establishments... as opposed to mega malls and such... not sure if this would be an unsuitable time to go... !
