Filled in wrong info on visa application

Hi guys, I'm helping my wife applying for visa (through web) to Taiwan next month for a friend's wedding, wife is Vietnamese. After submitting the info I realized I filled her job description wrongly, I filled in my company name instead! There's no edit mode any more so I'm wondering is it wise for me to redo the registration and submit it for a 2nd time? Will they red flag her application?

Showers and libraries

Touring the countryside on a bike in such temperatures you need to have shower every day , even more than once… Are there any public places in provincial towns where you can look for showers - public baths, swimming pools , others …? I usually look for free internet access (computers, not wifi) in libraries… How is it with it in provincial Taiwan? Do they have such service?

Contact person in Taiwan?

I'm going to Taiwan to visit a friend who lives in Taipei. I'll be travelling around for a few weeks on my own and will be doing some hiking. One of the things I noticed for many hikes is that a permit is required and to get the permit one needs a contact in the country. So I'm wondering; does that contact person also have to be a Taiwanese citizen? Or can my friend, who is European, but a resident of Taipei, be my contact person? What are my options if it has to be a citizen?

Thanks in…

Airport layover and time to kill

Will have about 10 hours to kill (6AM arrival into Taipai) and want to go into the city and look around. Is the bus a good choice to go into the city or should I get a cab? What is the bus fare and what is the approximate cab fare? I assume I will need to pay using TWD or do cabs accept credit cards for payment? Any suggestions on a cheap tour provider? Thanks.

Where to stay in Taipei?

Would like recommendations for specific neighborhoods to stay in (and also hotel/apartment recommendations, if possible). Would prefer a neighborhood with a lively street scene, restaurants, markets, shops, etc. Walking distance to any MRT station preferred. Also would like recommendations for an overnight in Beitou.…

Need your advice on three day itinerary :)

Hello everyone,

we are planning on stopping by in Taiwan on our way to the Philippines and were thinking of staying 3 days. Now I am wondering on how we could best utilize these 3 days to get as much as possible out of it.
Upon reading about Taiwan, I have now figured, the most interesting itinerary for these 3 days would be to spend one day in Taipei, go to Taipei 101 and such, and then spent the next 2 days maybe to travel the East Coast?

Does not sound reasonable to you? Would you have…
