Finally I found this very informative video. My flight po ako to Taiwan this coming January. I just want to ask if my idea po kayo kung kilangan ko pa po ba nang invitation letter to show sa immigration? Since invited po ako ng friend ko sa Taiwan and don po ako mg stay sa house nya. We're could she can get invitation letter form? Do I need show money sa immigration? My round trip ticket na po ako. Patulong na man po. Thank you. 😊

I definitely can live with that. It really depends on your needs a a traveler though. If you need luxury then that is enough.

Taiwan is a politically independent country. Has it’s own currency (Taiwanese Dollar), own flag, own president and is a capitalist/ democratic country. Still recognised as an independent country by a handful of countries. Read/ learn more about Taiwan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiwan
Allen Lu (1 year ago)
Taiwan is part of China, is not a country. you made a political mistake, this is very serious issue.
Taiwan is Taiwan. Taiwan No.1.

Huang Yuen Fang (1 year ago)
why refund the tax?
LexGo (1 year ago)
At the tax refund counter. Just look for it
Huang Yuen Fang (1 year ago)
oh really? i didn't know that..so when i bought something, i will give them my passport and i will ask for a tax refund and they will give me a receipt? Then in airport, where should I present the receipt so I can collect my tax refund? If I bought something in Taipe, can I ask a tax refund in Kaohsiung airport? thanks for the answer...
LexGo (1 year ago)
So you can shop for less

Thanks! Btw Chiang Kai-shek is NOT Taiwan's "founding father". He was a dictator from China who fled China then had Taiwan under martial law for decades and murdered lots of Taiwanese people
June Y (1 year ago)
LexGo I'm Taiwanese too... I guess we are sensitive about that lol :) It's a cool building but yeah, not too crazy about the guy who tried to brainwash school children with propaganda and his statues everywhere!

Yes! A Taiwanese friend of mine corrected me so I made the corrections in the graphics. Thanks for pointing it out.

Shane carwin (2 years ago)
Im going here next week. I will prob have trouble getting around since everyone speaks mandarin only. Do u think $1000 is plenty for two people after hotels r paid for
LexGo (2 years ago)
+Shane carwin Food and Trains are not expensive in Taipei. It shouldn't be hard to work on that budget
Shane carwin (2 years ago)
we are both going for 10 nights 11 days. We paid $900 for our hotel already. I budget about $1000 CDN cash for both of us, might have to bring a bit extra incase. We arent big spenders but my gf does love to eat. Hotels were a big expense which does not leave much for spending :(
