Taiwan

I was thinking of going to Taiwan in the next few months. How much would it cost(Hotel, food, etc). What is worth visiting? I was thinking of staying about 5-7 days and mainly plan to walk around and drink tea. How much should I bring?

    Of course you should go. Plenty to see and the people are friendly.
    What do you like?

    My answer will be gpt-tier since you're not providing specific info but here's a qrd for you :
    >how much would it cost
    Assuming worst cases for every price, and 1K for a roundtrip ticket to Taipei (adjust in your case), you've got living accomodations to take into account, decents hotels are around 50-80 bucks (if you pay more you'll get more, but at that price you get a solo room and breakfast in the financial district of Taipei), hostels can go down to roughly 30, airbnbs are roughly around that range too. Can get cheaper if you're out of taipei, such as new taipei city. Food isn't too expensive, expect a 20 buck/day expense since you're probably going to try lots of things, but it could go lower (or higher). Also, don't count on the possible girls you'll meet there to find you some decent shit. Better do your own research or stick to night markets.

    >Tourism
    Here's some of the usual shit in taipei :
    >Museums
    Don't bother visiting more than 2 unless you're a knowledgeable sinophile in which case perhaps you'll find these interesting.
    >Chiang Kai Shek memorial hall
    The absolute madman has an entire museum dedicated to his moronic life and a literal parody of lincoln memorial sitting on top of it. Great place for photos though, and the buildings are pretty beautiful i have to say.
    >Temples
    The temples in Taiwan are said to be differently adorned than those in the mainland, so you could give them a chance. e.g longshan temple.
    >Elephant Mountain
    If you want a hollywood-esque view of Taipei. Beware, it's a long climb, and i suggest you do it at night (or even better, sunset) for maximum effect

    cont.

      >night markets
      Basically, you want to have a good brekkie, save up your energy and try your hand at the night markets. The internet can provide you a solid list of those. Word of advice, you probably want your hotel to be near a big one if possible.
      >Neighborhoods (going by train station names here)
      The more interesting ones by order of personal preference are : Ximen, Dongguan, Taipei City Hall/Taipei 101, Taipei Main Station (the underground level is practically a giant city with malls and shit - I highly recommend you look for the Beimen Station market if you want souvenirs), as well as Technology Building/Da'an Area. Additionally, visit Guang Hua digital plaza but please have your internet at the ready so you can compare prices and make sure your ass isn't getting scammed 🙂

      Also, it doesn't really count as taipei, but it's close enough for a day-long trip, Keelung's night market is gigantic and the town is worth the detour.

      Outside of Taipei, since you're only staying for a week or less you could give Kaohsiung or Tainan a shot or go on the thousands of possible hike trails you can find on the island, the world is your oyster. I mean frick, even Yangminshan is phenomenal and it's practically within Taipei's borders. by April i'm usually in Kenting enjoying the beaches though.

      I'm not OP, but thanks for posting. I'm considering going to Taipei later this year.

      - Raohe is the best night market to start with if you're not familiar with such things since it's just one (long) street
      - For 5-7 days I would only stay in/ around Taipei
      - If you want to check out another city because you saw it's just 1 hour on the HSR or whatever, note that the HSR stations for none of the other cities are actually in the city so you have to piss around on a bus/connecting train/metro after the HSR to get to them
      - If you want to see some nature then bus tours from Taipei main station to Taroko Gorge are popular and run every day, but it's 3 hours on a bus each way (I did one, t b h it's fine for light hiking but it's mainly just about seeing the views). Some also go to Sun Moon Lake. Those are the most well known anyway, Taroko is the better one by far
      - If you are interested in tea (which your post seems to imply) then go up the Maokong gondola. There are lots of tea plantations, tea shops, a free little tea museum where you can sample teas for free, and then some other general hikes and views around the area (pic is from here)
      - Also the start of the Maokong gondola is near to Taipei Zoo. The zoo is massive but the ticket is cheap as frick so it doesn't really matter to just go in for an hour just to check out the pandas or the Formosa section
      - Jioufen is a popular day trip. T b h I felt it was a bit overrated, kinda just one long street through a town full of tourist shops but whatever. You can get there in a couple of hours easily enough on the public transport but there are also day tours running from Taipei and you can book it to go to other sites with the tour group too (Shifen, Yehliu)

      >Chiang Kai Shek memorial hall
      Sun Yat Sen is also worth it, not too far from Taipei 101
      >Elephant Mountain
      it's not a long fricking climb it's like 20 minutes and every other person there is a 70 year old 4ft grandma managing it just fine

    accommodation is more expensive now than you would guess. since covid shutdown i would say it has got 50% more expensive across the board for a room everywhere.

      A simple google search will show you how cheap it can get tbh, especially during the right season. Rent did go up however, but for a 1 week trip that's just irrelevant.
      Also, it depends on your budget. The hotel i used to go to hasn't change its rates, if anything they're cheaper now. I just checked another hotel near where i lived -same thing

      -t. went to hotels to cheat left and right on my gf at the time

      Also forgot to mention that I'm trans? Is this an issue?

      it's only funny if you're the first post.

      Taiwan doesn't have the same fetish for queers that America has, they don't worship them, but there is very little hate. They're either pro-queer or they do the Confucian thing which is to just ignore it.

      You've got a few events happening all the time, ximending has a gay corner behind the red house (easy to miss if you do not know about it). Unless you don't actively look for these kind of things you probably won't even realize they exist.

      However, i swear to fricking god half the fricking foreigners out there suck wiener. Assume every single one of these white guys are bi.

              you don't say.

              I've always been curious about Taiwan but my S/O is from the mainland where we live so there's an issue with passport and visa shit. I can go there freely but how can I get her there too? I know mainlanders can go if they're on a non tourist visa (student or w.e.) for another country like the US, but that's not our situation. Anyone know?

              You can check if ‘medical visa’ is still possible. If not you’re basically out of luck afaik. Tell your girl to check xiaohongshu for answers, other Mainlanders will have much better and more recent guides than anything you’ll find here/on the english internet

              she can literally baidu this. Taiwan has a shit ton of mainlanders living in there. You'd think they figured a way to stay that isn't illegal.
