Hello! Will be in Tw next year March. 6D seems too long for Taipei only, but too short if we would like to explore outside Taipei. Is it recommended to perhaps drop by Taichung or Tainan for a short 2D1N trip? Will it be too rush or cramped?
I'll be going to Taipei over winter break. I was wondering what is winter like in Taipei? What do I need to pack clothing wise? I'm visiting friends and their presents. What gift should I bring fortaiwanese elder?
Hi, guys! Please help me out in my itinerary... I'm going to TW for the first time in a few weeks, and I'd like to cover most of the attractions in the city and a bit further out in 4D3N. My base will be in Ximending.
- Day 1 - Urban Highlight**
Taoyuan International Airport early morning arrival Taipei HSR to Taipei Main Station Ximen Station - hotel drop-off luggage Tian Wai Tian Mala Hotpot lunch Ximen Red House Taipei 101 - shops & observatory Din Tai Fung dinner Ximending
- Day 2 - Nature Trip**
Yangmingshan National Park Beitou Hot Springs Danshui Fisherman's Wharf & Lover's Bridge Danshui Night Market Shilin Night Market
- Day 3 - Historic and Cultural**
Presidential Office Building (how to get here from Ximen Station?) pass by 2/28 Peace Park Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall; National Theater & National Concert Hall Dongmen Station - Yongkang Street Beef Noodle
Zhongxiao Fuxing station shopping district (Sogo, Breeze)
Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall
Taipei City Hall / Xinyi district malls (Bellavita, Mitsukoshi)
Houshanpi Station - Raohe Night Market
- Day 4 (Day Trip? Still up for draft)**
hotel checkout 10:30am
suggested trip - Yehliu Geopark + Jiufen Old Town? (how long should this take? will it be too taxing?)
ETA 10PM Ximending last look, take luggage from Hotel
en route to Airport (red eye flight)
Why the itinerary is as such:
I'm more of a city gal, so malls and modern structures are always a draw. Looking forward to Taipei 101 the most!
Going to Yangmingshan hoping to see autumn foliage! And it's near to Beitou (are the hot springs really that HOT?) Wasn't keen on Danshui intitially but it's also nearby so might as well.
Ticking the historical landmarks just because. CKS would probably be the highlight. Not into temples so left them out.
Going to night markets not so much for the food (not that adventurous) but for the experience. I might surprise myself.
Maybe you have other places to suggest in addition to the ones above? (and restaurants too!)
Thanks in advance!!!

What are fun and good gifts for our hosts in Taipei?
We will be travelling to Taipei in early Dec for 7 days We are 3 generation family of 9 people (4 teens).
We need transport
- from airport to hotel
- Daily from Hotel to visit sites, some day trips outside of Taipei
So many of us, imagine we will minimally need a mini bus.
We speak some Chinese. Best if bus driver can also do a little guiding. Willing to hire separate guide... perhaps or student who can accompany us all 7 days.
Would really appreciate any suggestions on good and reliable options.

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?
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
