Tips / Notes:
• Before booking a hotel, icheck nyo yung malapit sa mga Mrt station para tipid mga besh at lakad2 lang 🙂 For Solo Traveler at gusto magtipid try nyo hanap ng for backpackers ito recommended ko (see below).
•For solo traveler, try nyo maghanap sa Klook or KKday ng package like yung day 6 ko kasi mas matipid sya.
•For group naman mas okay kung rent kau sasakyan para mapuntahan lahat esp. yung Shifen Waterfalls 🙂
•If you will go to other cities like Taichung or Kaohsiung, book the unlimited ride HSR access for 3Days at KKday or Klook via online. For ₱3000, you will save a lot of money than buying it per ride. Look for the promo code sometimes they have ₱1000 disc promo code for that.
I highly recommend na maghanap din ng hotel near mrt in Ximending kasi andito yung shopping center so masaya tong lugar na to paggabi at accessible;)
Stay connected while in Taiwan
We availed the 5 Days Unlimited Data SIM Card for Taiwan via the Pinoy Traveler’s Unlimited Sim Card. Read our review and why we love this particular product sold in the Philippines. As a digital nomad, being connected all the time is my number one priority. REVIEW and HOW TO AVAIL.
Alternatively, you may opt to choose a WiFi device rental via KKday.
Let’s share to those who are planning to travel in Taiwan since its a visa free country na for Filipinos:)
Happy Trip Guys and God Bless!!!
