What should we do upon arrival at TaoYuan Airport?

by Bamleo

Good Day,
My wife & I shall be arriving at C.K.S./Tao Yuan International Airport on November 21, 2010 around 1240AM. I understand that the Free Go bus schedule from the Airport to Taipei City is up to 1AM. Our hotel is the King Shi Hotel located at No. 141 KunMing St., Xi Mending. Where shall we go to after the Immigration counter and upon our exit of the arrival area? Are there A.T.M.s (Automatic Teller Machines) at the arrival area? Can we still catch up with the Bus?
What shall we tell the driver on where to drop us as we don't speak any Chinese? I read in one of the hotel reviews that the bus shall drop us a few steps from the hotel's door. Is this true? If not, what shall we do? Thank You very much.

Hi there,

After immigration, turn right, Freego Counter is just located there. You will not missed it because there are just only a few counters. Just tell the counter staff which hotel you are staying, the driver will inform you upon arrival. Another tip, check out google map taiwan to get a feel of the area. If possible, download the address in Chinese in case you need help from the bypassers. They are willing to guide you.

enjoy your stay.

Hi, I have just arrived in Taipei and stayed in one of the hotel in Ximending. When we arrived at the airport and after collecting our luggages, we headed for the bus counters which is located near to a cafe. We can check with the bus companies whether they provide the bus service to your hotel. For us, we took a bus for about 30mins and changed to another bus mid-way through the journey. Afterwhich, the bus would send the passengers to the respective hotels. Take note, the bus driver alighted some of the passengers and told them where are their hotels. It really depends on the location of the hotel and whether the route which the driver used will pass by your hotel.

Travel Tips for Taipei

Recycling is EASY in Taipei

by FBMagpie

It is everybody's responsibility to take care of the environment, but especially when one is visiting a foreign country. I found Taipei, and increasingly the rest of Taiwan, to have one of the most convenient trash separation and recycling systems available anywhere. Most recyclable items bear the "recycle" symbol which looks like four arrows pointing towards the center of a square, and Taiwan recycles just about EVERYTHING from all paper, metal, plastic, and glass to used batteries, electronics, clothing, and kitchen scraps. These should be separated from trash (what little is left) and given to the truck bearing the same "recycle" symbol that usually tags along behind the garbage truck. While in the city, any metro station or 7-Eleven (among other places) will also have recycling bins marked with the "recycle" symbol. You don't need to go out of your way to help the environment in Taipei. Recycling simply cannot get any easier!

Wear layers..

by yukisanto

We went in March and the weather forecast was 16-22 celscius in taipei city and 11-15 at Yangmingshan. Well, it was hot for me who's so used to airconditioning. I even ate ice-cream at yangmingshan, and dressed in a thin tunic top and leggings. Goes to show, you better wear layers so that you can add on/take off your clothings while walking around to adjust to the surrounding temperature. Evenings are definitely cooler; enough to warrant a jacket.

Xiemen Ting - Shopping paradise

by ShirlyZ

You can get lots of imported Clothes and accessories from Xiemen. Most stuff are imported from Japan, Korea, US, and etc. It is quite pricy here. But if you wanna get tready stuff, Xiemen is the ideal place to shop.

Transportation in...

Transportation in Taipei--MRT--


Tamshui Line

The line starts from NTU Hospital, passes through Shilin, Peitou, and ends at Tamshui. It boasts the highest transport volume of all lines now.

Pannan Line

This short but important line with two connection points, Hsimen and C.K.S. Memorial Hall, has mitigated crowding at Taipei Main Station in advance. Surprised at its beauty, you will have a smile of understanding upon your arrival here.
Hope you enjoy the trip in Taipei!!!

Super Hot Star

by ngcsc about Hot Star Large Fried Chicken

Shilin Night Market is a must for travellers to Taipei... what is the must in Shilin Night Market?? The Hot Star Fried Chicken must be one of the top three in the list.

As you say night market, it is operating at night, but Hot Star always started at 4pm and just about 10 minutes, the line is longer than the one at bus stop.

It is NT45 per piece and I never finished one.... always share with my wife.... it is really BIG!! For Asian I think.

As you are in the line... you will see some plastic bags along the line... take one and open it when you are in front of the line and the seller will put the fried chicken in the plastic bag.... if you are not doing so... prepare for scold.

Beside salt and pepper, don't as the seller to chop the chicken for you even if you think it is too big to put in your mouth.... according to them, it is to keep the wonderful taste within, or they simply no time to keep the line moving.??? The XXX size Fried Chicken
