Went with a group of friends to Tai Chung and Taipei to play after our Graduation Trip in March 08. During Jan to April its still the cold season. However, in Tai Chung it was not as cold as Xi Men Ding.
The room was spacious and big. We booked a quadraplet room and a twin sharing room. For the quadraplet room, the room was huge and we got ourselves a king and queen size bed. All facilities in the room are well-equiped. The toilet was huge as well and there were bath tub with hot and cold water. There were even a plasma huge tv! Price for twin sharing room is NT1540 and NT 2380 for Quad room. Breakfast was included as well. However, all the food for everyday look almost the same. The bed was comfortable and everything was quite new. At night, if you were bored, you could use their internet for surfing.
Nonetheless, I must say the staff was very helpful in helping us to get to our to our place where we want. In taichung, everywhere is cab and its quite cheap, its goes by meter. A 7 seater cab cost the same as a 5 seater cab.
Please buy all the stuff you want in the at the night market because normally back in Taipei you will see the identical stuff but at a double or more price. There are actually one more night market where we wander around but couldnt remember the name. Tai Yang Biscuits please buy it there as well as it originates from there. Manicure is super cheap there as well. Do try to look out where you want to play as normally in the afternoon the shops do not open very early. While we are wandering around, we ate smelly tofu at a food stall. Its definitely the best compared to the one at the night market in tai chung and taipei. The cold noodles was almost very nice. Overall, we felt that Tai chung food was nicer than Taipei.
We went to a themepark called jian hu shan where we took a bus for about 2 hours as cab was too expensive. My friends and I who are themepark lovers, this was the first time when we played until we nearly vommitted. Though there are not many rides, maybe about 8. But it was definitely very exciting and fun. There is almost a discount for students. You could actually ask the receptionist, they will help and guide you.
