taipei december 2008 - day 1

the flight was SQ876, the earliest flight by SQ to TPE at around 0835 hrs. Got up slightly late, so rushed off to meet up with Kelvin without bathing. Got quite a bad sinus the whole day as a result.

reached Taoyuan T2. Had big problems locating places, because most of the signboards are in traditional chinese. From the airport to the hotel, we spent 2 hours changing into Guo Guang bus 61, which brought us to Taipei Main Station (TMS). Took a short break before changing to the local metro line to Ximen Station. Was quite a challenge navigating TMS, because it's a interchange station for all kinds of lines - local metro, High Speed Rail (HSR) and Taiwan Rail Administration (TRA) that goes beyond Taipei.
