Finally today I was able to spent some time to update my blog…Here’s we go! Taiwan!

We booked our ticket since 02 Aug 10 (RM886 for 2 pax). Travel period : 19 Mar - 27 Mar 11. Exchange rate : 1 SGD to NT2250.
We departed from LCCT airport at 1040 am and arrived Terminal 2, Taoyuan International Airport around 230pm. Then, we went to customer service counter to collect our Digital Tour Buddy (寶貝機) and apply for Tour Buddy Card (青年旅遊卡, only for aged 15-30).
The digital tour buddy came with a phone with NT100 credit inside whereas the Tour buddy card provides discount and special price for accomodation, admission fees and transportation . Do I need to pay anything for these 2 items? Hehe..The answer is NO. It was FREE! The tour buddy card not much useful but the digital tour buddy was useful!

How to apply the Digital Tour Buddy?
1. Register as a member from Youth Travel Taiwan website first.
2. Click on this link, and login.
3. Fill up the form and click sent (送出)
4. After several days, you will receive an email(青年旅遊網寶貝機申請核准通知郵件‏) from them.
5. Collect the Digital tour buddy from International Airport Terminal 2 customer service counter (台灣桃園國際機場第二航廈 旅客服務中心服務). Document required : original copy of IC and photocopy of your passport.

After that, we bought 3 pm bus ticket to Xi Men Ding (西门町).
we took Fei Gou bus (飞狗巴士) .
The ticket price was NT140 per person. 
Taiwan money $$$
Let’s try the phones first! Wow, we can straight away use it once we ON the phone. Good, we can use it to call our homestay first :)
Opps, It was raining!
After 30 mins, we thought we reached but the driver said we need to transfer to another bus ><
And, we need to wait for another 30 mins! Goshhh~ Let’s me make a call.
Finally, another 20 mins..we reached Taipei City.
Taipei Railway Station! It means we will reach Xi Men Ding soon. Just 1 station after this. The bus stopped us at Xi Men Ding MRT exit 6
We reached and we checked in our 日租101 Home Stay!

We selected room type – 西門二館精品套房-A (西門捷運站1號出口左轉30秒). The room costs NT1500 per night (Saturday). The location is good. It just needs 30 second to walk to MRT station.
The room space quite big.
Toilet quite clean also.
There was a balcony as well.
The time was around 5 pm now! What to do next? Yea… of course EAT first! To be continued….
