Hi, is it possible to stay in a hot spring resort and then visit Toucheng Farm in the day?
Anyone can help me , I like to go to orchard and experience fruit picking, is there a place in hualian? I will be there end of Oct
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
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.

First 4 days, we've arranged ground tour to visit Feng Jia, Tai Zhong, Lu Shan, Hua Lian and Luo Dong.

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
Any good suggestion of hotels/apt/home stay. We r thinking of staying where convenient for local foods and goods as well. Thanks in advance.
I am planning to DIY northcoast of taiwan on public transport. Need help for guiding me on public transport to Bitou, Nanya, Queen's head, Jiufen, Keelong. How can I travel to these places without having to transfer too many times, and how long do I need to wait for the public buses in these places? I am coming from taipeh city and can I cover these places in 1 day? If not, where is the most convenient place to put up for the nite and then continue my travel via public transport to these places? If there is a direct bus, where can I catch the bus without getting lost? I am more inclined to put up the nite in keelong (if this is nearer to the attractions), otherwise, which place is best for me to stay and visit those places at the same time.
