We landed 14 minutes ahead of ETA at Terminal 2, Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan around 10.30pm. The weather is nice and cold, based on our weather app on phone, the temperature at that nite was around 17° or so.

When our plane arrived at the airport, there is one cute airplane outside with Hello Kitty on its body. Everyone takes its picture including me. Hehe.

We’ve planned to ride a bus to Taipei city since riding in a taxi will cost us more. Just turn right after you got out of the arrival hall and you should see the ticket bus counter. The are lots of bus for you to hop on, just ask at the counter then choose 1 and pay NT$125/person and you are good to go. Most of the worker that works at front counter is good english speaker so don’t worry too much if you don’t speak chinese =)

While we were looking around in front of the ticket counter, one very nice Chinese man -he’s an Air Asia’s steward, comes forward to help us. He even sent us on board to make sure we are on the right bus. “Welcome to my home”, he said. Thank you so so much. Much love ♡

Its dark outside so we don’t really pay any attention to what Taiwan have on the outside then suddenly we have already arrive at Taipei Main Station. From there, we took a taxi to our dorm stay for the night and the receiptionist there welcomes us warmly.

The dorm is so comfortable. Yes, the room is small but we got one very comfortable bed each person with really thick comforter with our own lamp and our own plug to charge our phone and we get our own locker as well. The room and toilets are clean, and the atmosphere there is really good. They provided baskets for you to put in your clothes while you use the sink and they even have a corner for dry usage such as drying your hair or folding your clothes.

We really like it here. Really ♡

And I’m already in love with this country.

Will blog more.

=)

I’m going for a short 4 days trip to Taipei with one of my girlfriend so after much survey and consideration, I’ve decided to head to Mid Valley Megamall to convert money.

Actually you can refer to this blog for complete list of money changer in Mid Valley (I referred to this blog as well =P) but I will futher elaborate on one of the money changer that I went to convert my MYR to TWD (Taiwan Dollar, NT$).

The money changer’s run by Rapid Million Sdn. Bhd. and it is located INSIDE the NZ Megazine Centre shop. Unlike the other 2 famous money changer that is located right in the centre atrium of Mid Valley’s LG, this one changer sits right inside the small shop, quite hidden from public. Don’t just extend your neck from somewhere, you should walk right up to the front of the bookshop to be able to see the money changer.

Location : LG-013
Phone no. : 03 2287 2000

The current rate they are selling is 11.42/NT$100.

Tips: The exchange rates are all same between these money changers in Mid Valley so don’t bother to line up and join the long queue. Head to this one hidden money changer instead =P
