One more question.. Anyone here experienced about camping in Taiwan? We will rent a car and travel with our tent. How is it with "free camping" in Taiwan? If I don´t want to camp in some campground.. Just to place my tent somewhere in meadow, edge of the forest, less popular beach.... Of course no national park or private estate... I appreciate any advice ;-) Thanks. Katka
Hi everyone. The latest Lonely Planet suggests that for Budget travel around Taiwan, you need at least NT$1800 per day, which based on today's rate is about $US60. Would that be considered accurate? I will travel there this November for 3 weeks, which is apparently low season, so accommodation can be cheaper. I am pretty good at eating cheaply; it is probably the accommodation which I would find the biggest expense of my budget. I don't expect transport costs to be too high and it's a pretty…
Hi! Anyone experienced about hiking in Taiwan? Taroko specifically. I would like to hike on Hehuan mountain (main peak)and I´m thinking about asking for permit to Zhuilu Old Trail. I´m heading to Taiwan in October for almost two weeks, but it is my first time to travel there and I´m not sure about the trails. How difficult are they? We have good equipment as for schoes, clothes, we hike a lot. We don´t mind long trails, difficult terrain, but we are no climbers... Thanks! Katka

I lived in Taiwan 15 years ago and there were great deals on tents and sleeping bags; Rhino,Asolo, Scarpa,...
Is it still cheap enough when compared to Canada or the States, or should I lug my gear to Taiwan this summer?

Can anyone recommend a hotel within an hour or so from the Taoyuan Airport. We would like a budget or moderately priced hotel, hopefully not more than $ 75.00. Thank You! It sounds like we could get a bus or high speed train there. Any suggestions for that would be appreciated as well.
Ni hao !
I have 3 weeks in october and very much consider spending them on taiwan. I have travelled a lot (at least 3 years in total) all over asia (including 8 months in china), but havent been to taiwan. I havent done any research so far, but from what i have heard from colleagues who travelled to taiwan, it sounds like my kind of destination.
Im into culture and history, I like visiting temples and museums and also like nature. I also very much enjoy,eating and trying out local food…
