Local tour operators, hotel recommendations

by chriztina

I'm looking for a local tour operator in Taipei to go on tours both in the capital and outside (eg. Gaoshiung, Tainan, Alishan, Hualien). Has anyone tried good and reliable ones to recommend?

If you have hotel recommendations, please let me know too. Thanks!

I have visited Taipei in first week of June and stayed in Agora Garden Hotel. It is nice hotel in central Taipei and very close to Taipei 101. Clean and the staff were kind.

But the internet connection was very very slow and there is no wireless access only with cable.

I just posted this for another forumer:
Day 1:
-Take Ubus to Taoyuan HSR then head directly for Kaohsiung Spend night in Kaohsiung
Day 2- Kaohsiung. Spend night in Chiayi.
Day3 Head for Alishan and spend night there
Day 4 See Sunrise and head for Taichung via Chiayi station. Stay the night in Taichung
Day 5: Head for Hualien by train very early See Taroko and spend night in Hualien
Day 6 ~ 8 Taipei.
Something like that.

Travel Tips for Taipei

Wuchang Uprising (Wikipedia version)

by budapest8

The Wuchang Uprising (武昌起義, pinyin: Wǔchāng Qǐyì) of October 10, 1911,
started the Xinhai Revolution,
which triggered the collapse of the Qing Dynasty
and establishment of the Republic of China (ROC).
Sun Yat-sen's statue standing at the "First Uprising Plaza" of Wuhan,
in front of the office building of the Hubei military government of ROC,
the organization of revolutionaries established one day later after
the uprising.

In 1900, the ruling Qing Dynasty decided to create a modernized army,
called the "New Army". At the time, the city of Wuchang, on the Yangtze River
in the province of Hubei, had the most modernized military industry,
so it became the site where weapons and other military equipment for the
New Army was manufactured. The revolutionary ideas of Sun Yat-sen
extensively influenced officers and soldiers of the New Army in Wuchang,
and many participated in revolutionary organizations.

The uprising itself broke out largely by accident. Revolutionaries intent on
overthrowing the Qing dynasty had built bombs and one accidentally exploded.
This led police to investigate, and they discovered lists of revolutionaries
within the New Army. At this point elements of the New Army revolted rather
than face arrest. The provincial government panicked and fled. Initially, the revolt was
considered to be merely the latest in a series of mutinies that had occurred
in southern China, and was widely expected to be quickly put down.
The fact that it had much larger implications was due to the fact that the
Qing dynasty delayed acting against the rebellion,
allowing provincial assemblies in many southern provinces to declare
independence from the Qing and declare allegiance to the rebellion.

Wulai is well know for its hot springs. Even the Tai Ya Tribe of the area has a meaning of ‘hot springs’. The springs are clear, transparent and odorless. The benefits are especially therapeutic for dermatitis.

Taipei MRT's Routes Map

by DrJason

It's very convenience, comfortable and safe to travel by MRT around Taipei. The MRT system is very well established and maitained. Also, announcement is made in several languages such as English, Japanese, Mandrine, etc.

I'd highly recommended to those who have very limited time in Taipei (1~2 days) to travel with MRT.

The MRT will takes you to the major highlights in Taipei. Eg: Shilin Night Market, Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, The 101 Taipei Building, Tamsui Fisherman's Wharf , & etc.

It's rather cheap to travel too. Minimum of 1 stop only cost NT20/-. (http://home.trtc.com.tw/EINFO/eticketprice.asp)

Make sure you vsit the official web site of Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation for detailed info.

A Million Restaurants and Counting

by Lingualorphan about Buffet style

Naming one Cheap resteraunt in Taiwan would be hard. The food is not great and few small places have any language other than Chinese.

The food in the picture is from a Taiwan styled buffet lunch and dinner resteraunt. Choose it yourself and you don't need to speak. Good foor and Cheap!
