The Tango - Xinyi

What I've learnt:
To call Taiwanese landlines, you should only enter 8 numbers, just like Hong Kong. We've learnt that because we called the wrong number when we were trying to reach the Mountain Star to reserve places for hot tub. I typed in the whole series of numbers including '02', which was apparently not supposed to be included.
Hong Kong Dollars to Taiwanese dollars are 1:3.7
... leave with courage and bravery, and forget about questioning. With tears I had no choice but to leave my previous school a few years back, but with God's bare hands He has put me with the same people again.
'Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.'
This is a verse that has kept me intact since day one. Living, and therefore surviving, in Hong Kong is not ...
... tomorrow morning for 8am swim. Would have set alarm earlier if the pool is open before 8am.
Can’t believe we’re in the middle of Pacific Ocean. The Ocean is so VAST……I’ve a deeper respect and “fear” for ocean, after last Sunday’s 6 hours ocean kayaking underneath 蘇花公路. Did I mention that we kayaked from 南澳 to東澳. It was absolutely a crazy and adventurous ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Tango - Xinyi Taipei
Great accommodation in the city with complimentary mini bar & wireless internet access (very important)! Just 8 mins walk to nearest MRT station at Yong Chun station along the blue line.
Stay was as good as the Sheraton Taipei! Great amenities in the room, bed was real comfy and huge. Breakfast wasn't something you wana specially wake up for though.
They even had a washing machine and dryer in one of the cupboards which was real helpful! Lurve the bathroom, and the tub which had a TV for you to soak away in the night. Located just next to Primo, for those interested to try out Taiwanese night life.
