24-Hour Taiwan Travel Information Call Center!!
Wanna enjoy backpacking or travelling around Taiwan by your own? Feeling lost and frustrated because of language issue? Wanna ask for Taiwan Travel Information with professions? No time for reading any bulky Taiwan travel guide before heading to Taiwan? Freaking out if you do not know how to speak Mandarin for asking directions? Hate to book with any Taiwan travel agents but still wanna enjoy a great time in this Taiwan travel experience?
No problem!! Taiwan travel has never been so easier!! Who else needs to book with any traditional Taiwan travel agents any more if you have such brilliant tool (and Taipei-Vacation.com) with you?
Even you are planning a Taiwan travel, many of you still may know that there is a 24-hour Call Center for Visitors’ Information provided by http://www.taiwan.net.tw (an website created by Taiwan Tourism Bureau). They offer help and guide 24 hours in Chinese, English, Japanese & Korean!! (The website offers tons of useful Taiwan travel information. Remember to check it out before your visit to Taiwan!)
The best of them all – it’s FREE!!!!! ( Don’t you love the word? )
Borrow a phone or use public phones on the street whenever you have you any questions about Taiwan travel information or Taiwan travel guide when travelling in Taiwan.
Here is one idea that how you can use this brilliant tool about Taiwan travel information without help from any Taiwan travel agents. When you are taking a taxi and need to go to somewhere – but the taxi driver does not know how to speak your language. You can simply borrow the phone from the driver, and call the Taiwan travel information center!! (You can tell the driver it’s a free 0800 call).
Use it wisely when you visit Taiwan — or use the Taiwan Travel Guide which we summarized for you! : )
Best Cherry Blossom/Sakura season in Taiwan?
by eina30 on TripAdvisor Taipei Forum Dec 05, 2011, 1:05 AM
After Winter, Comes Spring!! Taiwan is famous for its breathtaking scene in spring, from North to South – And it’s lucky that there are many places to experience a beautiful sakura season in Taipei!! Can’t wait until the end of December for the early cherry blossom!! Make your booking now to catch the amazing scene!
This is Cassie from Taipei-Vacation.com. We are working as freelance Taipei travel advisor, aiming at planning and designing personalized Taiwan tours for overseas travelers.
As eeveelugia already mentioned, the cherry blossom season in Taiwan starts between the end of winter and the beginning of spring (late December to April). In addition, the earliest cherry blossom season in Taiwan may start in Sanzhi Dist., New Taipei City (located in Northern East Coast of Taipei) – ”Sanzhi Early Cherry Blossom”. With the feature of slope ramp, this area breeds many original Taiwanese types of cherry blossoms, e.g. 緋寒櫻, 八重櫻 and 吉野櫻. So far, more than 15,000 sakura trees are planted with 70 kilometer long. It is truly a breathtaking scene which you would have to witness by yourself. Every year, tons of tourists and locals come here to celebrate the events (櫻芝戀).
You can plan a whole day trip to Northern East Coast (Jiu Fen, Jinguashi, Ruifang, Keelung, Shifen, Qingtong) with a pre-book driver. Usually it takes TWD 4,500-4,800 per 8 hours for a 4-seated taxi. If you are travelling with a group of 4 people, I personally think it would be the best way for a flexible and hassle-free experience!
Let us know if you are interested in making the booking for Taipei accommodation or taxi with us! Enjoy Taipei!
Hope it helps,
The best month to visit Taiwan for cherry blossom is March, but do expect crowds everywhere.
Yongminshan (Feb-Apr), you can also see azalea flowers and calla lilies in March-May.
Tainyuan Temple (天元宮, Mar-Apr), near Tamshui, crowd is terrible.
Sun Moon Lake area (Feb-Mar)
Wuling Farm (Feb-Mar)
NTU highland experimental farm (Mei-fang Farm, Jan-Mar)
