What is the worst thing they can do to me at the airports if I take two packs of cigarettes with me in Carry on bag? I'm 17 years old.
Don't tell me to stop smoking, just answer my question please. Thanks in advance
Hi. I'm thinking about spending 60 days in taiwan.
What's about the budget compared whith the other asian countries? I'm a backpacker and i travelled a lot in almost asian country for long time (more than one year in china, an so on..)

Is it possible to buy cigarettes in Taipei while im 17 years old? I will be really thankful if someone gave me some advice :)
Ps. I know it's illegal but in every country smoking by minors is illegal but people still do this.
This will be my first trip to Taiwan and I have lots of unknowns. One is use of my smart phone. If I get international access will my phone work or some of the travel books suggest getting a phone when you land at the airport. Anyone know what to do here? Also how about computer use while on the island. I wanted to put some travel apps on my phone, but they will be useless unless I can use my phone. Thanks for any information here.
My daughter and I will be traveling to Taiwan for our first time ever and I am trying to plan some weekend excursions for us. She will be studying in Taichung during the week. After reading some travel books it looks like the east coast is beautiful and a bit more the old Taiwan, a great way to experience the Taiwanese way of life. We were thinking of cycling down either Hwy 9 or 11 or 193 and 197. I was wondering which route would be the best for intermediate cyclers. We were thinking of…
Huashan 1914 Creative Park in Taipei has been opened for a couple of years and now it is getting better and better. So lately I was strolling in the creative park and realized it is “spotted” with the eye-catchy Kusama Pop-up Cafés that opens until September this year. Now the park is just getting more special – Yayoi Kusama is a world-recognized avant garde modern artist and her polka dots could be spotted and recognized by many many art-lovers in a heartbeat - something…
My wife and I will be visiting Taiwan in November and we usually see the city for a couple of day and then rent a car to see the rest of the stuff we want to see. I found that rental cars in Taiwan are very expensive. So with the plan I have outlined, is the plan doable and can we get trains, busses, etc... to travel around or should I change my travel plan?
Thanks so much!

Day 2&3: Visit the sights in Taipei Overnight in Taipei
We are in Taipei for a conference in July and will have 3 days (!) to see some countryside before we are stuck in the city. We have already been to Sunmoon Lake and fancied trying to do a train journey in the anticlockwise direction, down the west coast and up the east. Plans so far are to take the HighSpeedRail from the international airport to Tainan city, have a look at that, then the next day to catch the southwest link to Taitung, then the east coast train to Taroko, see the gorge the…
Arriving in Taipei at midnight tomorrow and taking off 30 hours later. What is the best area for a hotel that is near interesting places? (night markets, museum, temples). Also, not too far away from airport would be ideal.
How much is more or less a taxi from airport? Any suggestions of things not to miss for a photographer?
