  • tai chung driver

    by sherise___ Written Jun 14, 2010

    Mr Liao (he can read emails in English, though he's not so conversant) charges a reasonable price and he is not just a driver and could help u take photographs and tell u about the place too.

    Unlike my taipei driver, he literally stays with you wherever you go

    +886 980 793 823/ or email blacktea398@yahoo.com.tw

    He usually wants to know where his services are being recommended, so say Miss Wang from Singapore who came with 1 boy and 1 girl. The girl whom he kept discounting the age ;) There are loads of reviews for him on tripadvisor, just do a search

  • Taipei Subway

    by lynsy Written Jun 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THe best way to get around Taipei alone is by their subway or taxi. The subway is easy to take but many directional signs available within the subway. Many of Taipei's attractions are easily located near their subway. However, a warning that once outside the subway, there are no road signs available to indicate the location. There is also no clear signs to indicate where the subway is, hence, be careful to remember where you came from. Or get a detailed map as those given in the airports show only the main road names. If you travel free and easy, get the stored value card at NT $500 and get a refund later if there is a balance.
    Taxis are plenty and quite cheap by the meter. However, to the airport will be a bit more expensive. Taxi drivers are friendly but don't speak english much.
    For transfers from airport to hotel and back, there are airport buses available, tickets must be bought at the airport and appointments placed 1 day before departure. Ticket price is NT$131 or more. Transfers by cabs or hotel buses are defintely more expensive

  • Getting here and there

    Buses in Taiwan are really convenient -fang bian! They are pretty cheap, 70-100 km's ride costs about 60 NTD (2 euros). There are more expensive ones, too, so compare prices!

    The most expensive ones have a super efficient air conditioning, so you don't have to sweat. Sometimes they show movies, too, and every passenger has a play station there, too! ;)

    It is useful to learn the Chinese name of the city where you are heading for, it helps you to find the right bus.
