出游台湾 [资料。户] Taiwan Travel Essentials

Gonna provide some important information that i think it will be useful.🙂

TAXI: PJ to LCCT

I had made a taxi booking through online – LCCT Taxi Booking. Actually i called them because i’m quite last minute. Their service really good! I get a confirm phone message few minutes after my booking with the taxi driver name, hp number, taxi car plate, confirmation time and address. And the charges was quite reasonable, RM70 from Taman Mayang to LCCT.

Pre-planning:
EasyCard (悠游卡) from Taiwan Visitors Association

You just need to provide your passport to prove that you’re eligible and they will hand you a simple form to fill out.
