Travel around Taipei using MRT

Hi,

I'm going to Taipei for Business trip on Mid September. Would like to know whether there's any promotion if buying MRT pass for more than 1 week? I'm staying there around 10days and most probably will travel around using MRT and will travel to Tainan/Hsinchu/Taoyuan/Yunlin apart from base in Taipei

If you are using the HSR trains everyday from Taipei to other cities, you can consider getting a 3 days pass or 5 days pass. It will save you a lot of money. Pls read information from this link/where to buy/how to use - thsrc.com.tw/event/…Buy_3DayFlexible.html

These 3 tour agencies in your country are selling these vouchers which you have to exchange at any HSR counters with your passport for the pass.

Dear All,

Thanks for the reply and Richard for the hotel recommendation.

One last question and I'm set to go. I was told that there's no money changer in Taiwan, which similar to China. I need to exchange USD from bank.

What's the rate currently for USD exchange to TWD? Is it better that I change the money in Malaysia first?

Thanks in Advance

Hi Karloon

There are Money Changer at the Airport - It locate before U go thru immigrations.

Location: www.taoyuan-airport.com/english/store3_2/1103

But from wat I notice (In KL Mid Valley), TWD is better in MY compare to when changing in Taiwan.

U can compare with Bank Of Taiwan Exchange Rate here:
