Answer by lildude211us
I dont know if you will see much without going higher into the hills. Plus, it kind of depends on which way you are facing because that area is kind of in the mountains. You might only get to see like the top half of the tower because the rest is blocked by a hill.

I think you can count on having a crowd there. Its new years and people usually will go out and celebrate. The size of the crowd can’t be predicted right now because nobody knows how many people are actually going to go.

edit: Yangmingshan is a great place also, but you still have to make sure that your view of Taipei isnt being obstructed by another hill and you can definitely count on a crowed there. Also, you still have to go higher into the mountain to see more of the city.

Answer by Evelyn H
The legal drinking age in Taiwan is 18, therefore you won’t have any problems getting into any of the clubs and lounges there. I can’t speak for the clubs in Taichung because I personally feel the people in Taipei are much more sophisticated. Also if you are not asian you need to choose the clubs you visit a little bit more carefully in Taichung…In taipei there are a lot of choices. Right now the younger crowd 18+ go to Lava, the slightly older crowd 22-30 probably goes to Room 18 still. and then there is Plush and Roxy99. There are also a lot of really cool lounges in Taiwan that are worth checking out. Since the clubs don’t get going till after 11:00, most people go to a lounge first. You can check out this website www.TaiwanNights.com. I hope this helps.

Does any one know of a good Traditional Chinese medicine Doctor in or near Taichung-city?

Question by chububobcat????: Does any one know of a good Traditional Chinese medicine Doctor in or near Taichung-city?
Sometime around Christmas last year I was involved in a small scooter accident, while riding around in the country side. A Mercedes driven by some crazy Brit forced me off the road and in to a rice paddy. When I fell off my bike, it landed on my leg and hip. Since then I have had a little stiffness in my leg and some pain. Recently while riding in Taipei I was hit by man that ran a red light and did an illegal turn and re-injured my leg & hip, causing me at time severe pain, and it causes me to have some difficulty sitting or walking for long periods of time. I have visited 4 different western medicine doctors, and have been told 4 different things, with 2 of them being quite worrisome. So I thought before going through the test to find out if it is either of these, I wanted to try Traditional Chinese medicine doctor to see if there is something that can be done in this manner. I have had a few friends that have gone to see these people, none of them remember where the found the doctor since it was a “friend of a friend’s brother who introduced them” type of situation.

So does anyone know of a good, effective, reliable, Safe! Chinese Medicine doctor in or near Taichung?

Best answer:

Answer by Cultural Insight
Sorry about your medical problems, dude. Hope you can find a good treatment center.

I know a couple of people who used TCM as a supplement to western medicine and someone who used it alone for arthritis. As it was explained to me, TCM is mostly about long term improvement to the immune system, though they do have some herbs to fight inflammation and other specific symptoms. If you need a joint replacement (hip, knee, whatever) then TCM can’t repair the problem, but it may be able to give you some symptomatic relief (maybe yes, maybe no).

The largest TCM facility in Taiwan is located in Taichung. The China Medical University was also the first TCM focused university in Taiwan. Give them a call and see if they can help. They can treat you with western and TCM at the same time, if that is likely to give the best results.

If I wanted to drive a Muscle Car in China or Taiwan, which one would be a good choice?

Question by Art Arfons: If I wanted to drive a Muscle Car in China or Taiwan, which one would be a good choice?
I travel internationally and would like to have my own vehicles sitting in China (Shanghai) and Taiwan (Taichung) awaiting my arrival. Which classic “muscle car” might you suggest as the most practical of the absurdities?

Best answer:

Answer by We Never Left!!
An early Mustang or AMX (if you can find one). They are both impressive performers, yet short enough to park easily here.

@Clone – He asked about “Muscle Cars” not “pimpmobiles”

Q&A: Where is a good place to find “stinky tofu” in Kaohsiung?

Question by We Never Left!!: Where is a good place to find “stinky tofu” in Kaohsiung?
I plan to visit Kaohsiung with some foreigner friends, and I want them to taste a traditional Taiwanese taste treat.
Obviously, Average American 2 and Little One have misunderstood the question. I can easily find chiou dofu. I am looking for a recommendation for good quality chiou dofu, perhaps with an interesting venue.
… and I am looking for it in Kaohsiung Taiwan, NOT Kaohsiung China. So, if you haven’t been there, why do you pretend to know anything about it?
[Sorry, it’s “chou dofu”.]

Answer by White Female Suspect
Follow your nose. The smell of stinky tofu is unmistakable. Lots of street vendors sell it.

Where is a good place to buy running shoes in Taipei, Taiwan?

Question by Kaleb W: Where is a good place to buy running shoes in Taipei, Taiwan?
I am running in the marathon at Tarko Gorge in November. I need to pick up another pair of running shoes, but I have no idea where to go. I’ve been in Taiwan for 2 months so I know where to get shoes at night markets etc., but I need quality running shoes. It would be nice if there was a shoe or running specific store. It would also be nice if the store has people that speak English and could fit me for quality running shoes. Price is really not an issue.

Best answer:

Answer by Jeff L
If you are wear it for the competition,don’t but it at night markets.
You should buy it at department stores, sports wear store…etc.
In Taipei, go to Gongguan (??) very close to Taiwan university, there are some sports wear shops there, price are resonable,quality is also good.

Every year from October in Taiwan, time for department store’s on sale, buy everything ,they always has discount better than regular time.
Shinkong Mitsukoshi, Sogo….
Go go go…

Q&A: What are good products to even out a cyclist tan?

Question by ziggydiggy1: What are good products to even out a cyclist tan?
Despite consistently slathering up with sunscreen I’m sporting a pretty awful cyclist tan like this guy (not actually me though):

http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/Labo/Ilan.Vardi/tan.html

I’d prefer not to tan further as most sources say it’s universally unhealthy. What are some specific product recommendations to even out this ridiculous tan.

Best answer:

Answer by Aki T
The best way, use tanning moisturizer. In your case, you need to really dilute the tanning moisturizer with normal moisturizer. It will even it out possibly overnight, depending on what you want. I use Dove and that does it over not. You can change how much tanning moisturizer you need on the severity of your tan. But you need to always dilute it so it does not leave any streakiness.
