What is there to do/see in each station of the Taipei MRT?

Question by noanswer: What is there to do/see in each station of the Taipei MRT?
I know it’s tiring to enumerate all the stations. Hehe. Just share the ones you know. By this, I mean places to see and things to do within the proximity of the station by just walking. I haven’t been to all the stations, especially the “brown” and “orange” lines. I’m only familiar with Ximen and Shilin.

Was there a river in the Taiwan strait during the last ice age?

Question by Koenraad: Was there a river in the Taiwan strait during the last ice age?
The isobaths (Lines of depths) of the map of the taiwan strait seem to suggest a valley created by a river. Does anyone know there used to be a river prior to the big flood of the last ice melt?

Thanks in advance

Answer by ???
Interesting question…
I believe that the topography of the Taiwan Strait is due to uplifting of the Asian and Philippine tectonic plates at their juncture in the vicinity of Taiwan, rather than from erosive action.

Was there a US court case involving Mount Zion’s New Testament Church and the ROC (Taiwan) government?

Question by Overseas E: Was there a US court case involving Mount Zion’s New Testament Church and the ROC (Taiwan) government?
Mount Zion is located in the Shuanglienku area of Sanmin Township, Kaohsiung County, Taiwan. The community is situated in an area 600 meters above sea level and covers more than 100 chia (97 hectares) of land. In 1963, followers of the New Testament went with Hung Yiliya (also known as Hung San-chi), who they believed was a seer, to the area to begin cultivating the land. By 1980, the area had started to take shape.

Government agencies in Taiwan, however, have traditionally deemed the group an illegal organization. Conversely, the group views the Republic of China government as an illegal organization.

Rumor has it that the Mount Zion religious group took legal action in a United States court against the Republic of China, claiming that the ROC authorities had no jurisdiction over their activities. The group said that under international law, the sovereignty of Taiwan does not belong to the ROC.

Does anyone have details on this court case, and what the judges decided?

What types of transport is there between Taipei and Taoyuan in Taiwan?

Question by Kaos: What types of transport is there between Taipei and Taoyuan in Taiwan?
I also want to know between what times do they run. Please provide websites to support your answers.

Best answer:

Answer by Steven C
The most common types of transportation for you to go from Taipei to Taoyuan will be taxi, train, and bus. I have tried all 3. Taxi, of course, is most convenient. Get a taxi with a meter and you won’t get ripped off. However, train is also very convenient. Go to the train station toward the end of Chung Chiao Rd. There is a huge board on top of the ticket selling windows in the main hall. I hope you read Chinese because I remember everything will be in Chinese. Buy your ticket and take the escalator down to catch your train on the correct plat form. The bus station is very close to the train station, and the protocal is pretty much the same. However, I speak Chinese and can navigate the routes quite easily. the train is comfortable and cheap but I would not recommend the bus if you don’t speak the language or if you can’t take some nerves for an adventure. If you don’t speak Chinese, or don’t have a friend hwho can guide you around you can end up in some strange village quite easily…I guess I would recommend you to get a taxi. Don’t quote me on this, but I remember the cab fare from Taipei to Taoyuan is around one thousand NT$. Good luck.

Are there any good 18+ clubs in taiwan anyone will recommend?

Question by Jay z: Are there any good 18+ clubs in taiwan anyone will recommend?
I”ll be going to taiwan soon, Taipei and Taichung respectively, but any info would help!
I’m going to taiwan in a couple weeks and yes I’m asian (Chinese) and 18 so any help would be appreciated

Best answer:

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.

Has anyone else found cockroaches on there at Yakiniku ?

Question by Sir.Kombuis: Has anyone else found cockroaches on there at Yakiniku ?
More specifically at the Yakiniku in Feng Jia, Taichung . And when I asked to see the kitchen they refused. When I asked what the manager would do if he was the customer , (would he tell his friends to go there, would he come back ) he said I would probably not like his answer.

Best answer:

Answer by Pagan Dan
Cockroaches can be found anywhere in a tropical and sub-tropical climate, and they are not associated with filth the way they are in North America or Europe. You can take for granted there WILL be cockroaches, in any restaurant kitchen in Taiwan. My friend’s sister owns a really nice restaurant, and she gets the exterminator in once a month to keep the little perishers at bay.
